Cobalt Blue- Impact
A blue accent wall serves doubly in the industrial loft space of the bustling New York City. Type designer Russell Maret and photographer Annie Schlechter have used it to cover a wall which is thick and structured. They initially wanted a painting of Yves Klien but after consulting painting contractors Toronto, they made their wall at which they could look at. A striking colored accent wall is always the center of attraction and the focal point in any room. To make a wall stand out, like the one similar to Annie’s, try painting it with cobalt blue and offset it with lavender and pink touches.
Coral- Raise Intrigue
To provide an unexpected touch which raises intrigue in a traditional space, Jewelry designer Elizabeth Locke designed her dining room with “ pompeian red”. Painter Malcolm Robson and decorator Alison Martin drew these colors from the silk curtains and the oriental rug and mixed multiple layers of glaze to bring a peachy orange color. Alison says that she finds people look much more wonderful in red and pink rooms. Painting contractors Toronto suggests that to reduce the formality of classic designs and furnishings and to add a fun counterpoint which is also vibrant, accent a wall in a bright color.
Soothing Pink- Soften
For a soft and serene look in a room, rather than top create a vibrant space, British artist Sue Williams A’Court painted soft pink on a wall in her living room. She says that this wall adds warmth and comfort into her huge light-filled living space. She also says that it is calming which could easily get sterile without the addition of color. On an accent wall, use light hues to make a focus and then add lights and bold art for a contrasting and fun effect.
Warm Red- Add Depth
Decorator Alessandra Branca of Rome didn’t want her living room to be a huge red room, but rather an inviting and elegant one. So, she instead opted to paint a large square on the wall and that gave the room the punch, depth and focus she wanted to inculcate. She picked rich terracotta red color to complement the other belongings in her living room. Painting contractors Toronto suggests that to create a sumptuous look on an accent wall, paint it with different shades of the color.
Blue- Cool & Calm
The blue-white backdrop of creative director Morgane Sezalory’s dining area has a simple yet effective appeal and makes it seem both simple and modern at the same time. The blue-gray wall and shelves give a countryside effect and makes it a happy space to live in. Choose a blue accent wall with gray undertones for a relaxing effect. Make sure to keep your furnishings in neutral and natural tones.
By adding an orange to a plain space, designer and painting contractors Toronto Mona Ross Berman has made a very basic space in her family’s beach house to appear to be fun and chic. Orange, with a slight pink tone, makes any space light up. This space is cheerful and lighthearted and is the first one upon entry which effectively sets tone for the rest of the house.
