Play with Patterns and Shapes

Patterns and Shapes
Add color and dimension to a room by designing a playful geometric pattern on the walls. Instead of using wallpaper, try out stencils or tape to create a unique work of art.

Let There Be Light

Let There Be Light
Open up your living space by painting with soft, light colors. Not a fan of white walls? Try a pale gray, blue or dusty white for a subtle, relaxing vibe.

Throw in a Pop of Color

Pop of Color
Make a room pop with a bold accent wall. Choose bright, fun colors like deep orange, purple, olive or navy to liven up a room and create the illusion of a larger space.

Create the Illusion of Taller Walls with Stripes

Stripes are a fun way to add color and pattern to your home! Want your walls to look taller? Try painting vertical stripes to give the illusion of higher ceilings.
