Colour 101: Two "twists" on the traditional feature wall

I'm still undecided how to get some colour onto the walls in an interesting way in Anoushka's shiny new little room. And thanks you all for the fab suggestions, by the way - pale grey (I would never have thought of that!), turquoise, bright green, a yellow strip, a gold ceiling... They are all amazing ideas. I also can't stop thinking about these two "twists" on the traditional feature wall:

(above) Paint a half height section of wall, being sure to wrap around a corner for max effect. Love how this one doubles as a bed head (and can we start obsessing over that Melon colour already?!). Huge thanks to Anna who made my weekend by sending me that swoooony pic!

Oh How Sublime

Another alternative to painting a simple feature wall is to use one colour in two different strengths on two adjacent walls. So fab. Seriously considering this one... Hmmm.


  1. i like the bottom image looks beautiful..and i'm liking that two tone idea,i saw your daughter's room looks gorgeous so far.good-luck.. loving your style so i'm sure its going to be fab!!
    love for you to visit me at melli's designs sometime:) xx

  2. the first one's the go for sure... I like how it creates a sense of intimacy around the bed.

  3. I like the second image..two-tone looks like a good idea for the anoushka's room...but what color have you decided on ...do share...xx meenal

  5. Definitely the second room. I love the slight variation of color. It looks put together, but not matchy-matchy.

    Certainly, the inclusion of a therapist's guidance only strengthens one's efforts
    and provides insight that might otherwise go unexplored.

    Talking to them can make you want to withdraw from the world?
    After all, their partners were so in love with the image that their
    partner will take away the custody of the minor, and fear of the backlash it might create.
