A Whole New Kind Of Feature Wall

Wall paneling is so immediately impactful for any home. It sets a statement. Paneling your walls with wood trim adds character to basic architecture and it doesn’t have to be traditional. It adds instant charm, but does more for a room than just on the trim/baseboards.

Modern abstract paneling is a hot trend right now, that will probably last for a long time. You can paint it, change the colours and match the wall to the trim colour. We are used to seeing wall paneling going either vertical or horizontal on a wall, now get used to diagonal lines and patterns.

All of us want our home to be full of charm and character, but often we buy a house based on other things – location, size or budget. Usually the cheaper and mass-produced houses are the ones that lack the character which gives older homes their innate charm.

Listen up, just because your house was built “basic”, doesn’t mean it has to stay that way.

Come up with a plan:

  1. Draw it out.
  2. Get the wood pieces cut
  3. Attach paneling to wall with glue or a nail gun. (or hire professional)
  4. Prime the walls (we can help you find the best primer for your walls.)
  5. Choose your favourite Benjamin Moore colour for the top coat and apply 2 coats. A matte finish is soft and probably the most popular with panelling.

Colour Feature ~ Black

Colour Featured: Black Satin  2131-10 by 
Benjamin Moore

Black is a mysterious color that is typically associated with embracing the unknown. It promotes a sense of power and self-confidence, allowing for a clearer view of the world. Black absorbs all colour and it is the absence of light. In colour therapy black gives protection from external emotional stress.

Black helps with anxiety and it helps you to feel safe and secure, the perfect colour for a bedroom or family room. The energy of the planet is chaotic but the colour black always feel firmly grounded.

Black doesn’t have to be on every wall to get the look, a feature wall behind a bed or tv works well too. It will create a statement and a focal point in the room.

This paint colour featured is 2131-10 Black Satin by Benjamin Moore.

A note from Colour Expert & Interior Designer Meg Quasim

“Quite often I will study colour preferences with my clients, week by week and then again by the month. I guess in a sense, it’s a study that allows me to reflect on clients wishes and which colours they fancy the most. Colour changes the way we feel in our spaces, so we need to choose those colours wisely. I can say that turquoise is one of the most popular colours and right now it’s only second place to it’s darker sister Teal.” – Meg Quasim
