Feature walls are back on trend with many new options and can be as bold or as subtle as you like. Even though feature walls are made to stand out, you still need to tie parts of it to the theme of the space or home. “The feature wall may have elements that tie in with the colour theme of the room, or decorating elements, such as cushions or lamps may tie in with the feature wall. Ensuring all these elements work together will make the space more harmonious.”
There are many new ideas and options for feature walls. Timber walls, textured wallpaper, painted patterns, tiles, picture printed wallpaper and mosaics are just a few ideas. There is a big trend in colour blocking at the moment (similar to fashion), where two or three adjoining walls are painted or finished in the same colour, creating a block of colour rather than small individual walls.
It is important not to overwhelm the space though, particularly if the feature wall is quite bold. Ensure the other decoration in the space complements rather than competes with the feature walls.
