DESIGN, Living

Are you torn between a bright, white room and a fun, colourful space for your little one? We suggest you try colour blocking and have a bit of both. The possibilities are endless and you can take inspiration from almost anything.

Colour block walls are trending for a while now and can really make a statement in any room without a big budget.
Pairing contrasting colours creates geometric effects that highlight a part of your space or simply dress up an empty wall.

It is perfect when you are not a fan of wallpaper but love a splash of colour and pattern. Colour blocking is done by selecting zones on a wall or ceiling and painting them in a different colour from the main wall colour.

Have a look at some of the following coulor blocking wall designs that will totally blow you away.


With colour blocking, you can add as many colours as you like. You can create patterns, paint parts of a wall or even parts of the ceiling. You can even update furniture. Take an old armoire and paint it. Colour block by painting the front in a different shade than the sides for example. The possibilities are truly endless.

One of the easiest ways is to simply keep the walls white or in a very neutral colour. And then pick a very bright or significantly darker color to paint halfway up the wall. The room below is a perfect example.
