  • orlando painting for accent wallsIn the world of interior design, “bold” is the word of the decade. From bright, stunning colors to huge graphic murals, interior decorators and homeowners alike have been stepping outside the lines of common decorating techniques to create rich settings with lives of their own. However, most homeowners don’t want to deal with the struggle that is wallpaper. The good news is that they don’t have to.

    Painted walls don’t have to be all one color, and no one ever said you had to stay inside the lines! From the Orlando painting professionals at Orlando Painting and Drywall, here are a few ideas for stunning graphic wall designs – no wallpaper required:

     

    • Go Modern. Modern wall art is fairly easy to pull off; in fact, it’d be a great project for the whole family to tackle together. All you need is painter’s tape and three or four paint colors of your choice. Tape down your design; there’s no right or wrong way to do this – you can make small triangles, big squares, whatever! Then, simply paint and peel away the tape.
    • Head for the Hills – er, the mountains. We love designs that bring the outdoors in, and if you’re dreaming about somewhere with a little more elevation than Florida, this mountain design is the perfect solution. Create a few jagged stripes in an ombre of shades, from light at the top to dark at the bottom, to simulate far-off misty mountain peaks.
    • Chisel out a chevron pattern. The classic chevron pattern is actually fairly easy to pull off, and its applications are pretty versatile. You can create your chevron with as many colors as you like. However, chevrons and other similar bold patterns are most successful when they take up just one accent wall – otherwise they can become overwhelming and take over the space.

    When you take on the challenge of creating your own wall art, to achieve a professional look you’ll want to make your lines as smooth and even as possible. Getting the measurements is easy when you leave it in the hands of the professionals. Schedule your consultation with the Orlando painting team at Orlando Painting and Drywall.
