1. Paint the ceiling Let's start big. We're always hearing about the accent wall but have you ever considered the accent ceiling? If not, now could be the time: not for the faint-hearted, it probably works best in taller, airier spaces that won't feel stifled or suffocated by a fifth wall of colour.
TIP: If you're planning to paint your ceiling, use a neutral colour to fill the rest of your space. In the space shown above, for example, snowy white provides the perfect foil to the rich magenta on the ceiling and upper portion of wall.
2. Create a contrast A two-tone approach on your walls is a great way to pair together a duo of colours.
Using opposing shades - one light and one dark, or one primary and one pastel, and so on - is a great way to add extra interest to your walls without doing anything as 'quirky' as adorning a wall with a statement print or paper.
3. Subtly create a weave of colour throughout the space In the bathroom shown below, for example, a bold, bright blue dances from the wall to the floor of the bathtub, via the shelf attached to the wall.
4. Consider a mural Got a blank wall crying out for a little love? Reach for the paint pots and design a bespoke mural, utterly unique to your home.
If your paint skills aren't 100% au fait, consider hiring an artistically inclined friend or a professional to help you out.
