Paint gets personal, as this trio of rooms reveals. Readers Sakina, Kelly and Robyn each chose a single space in their homes to decorate using their favourite colours. The results are remarkable, so be inspired by their projects and start plotting your own.
“When my husband and I started renting our flat, it was painted entirely in Magnolia, but I can’t stand plain walls!
I love green and wanted a pastel shade in the bathroom, so when I visited the Dulux website, Tuscan Glade 3 immediately stood out.
We painted the walls in full, but felt that one block colour in a compact space with high ceilings would be overwhelming. After browsing the web for inspiration, we painted the top of the walls, the ceiling and skirting in white. This made the pastel shade pop and allowed more light to bounce around, opening up a small room.
The landlord might change it back when we leave, but for now, paint is an easy solution that added bags of personality.”
