If you fancy adding an extra touch of personality to interiors, try livening up walls with a stunning feature wall. Whether you’re bold with colour, or love the subtle approach, Crown Paints has a colour combination for you.

For those daring with colour
If you love nothing more than creating interiors that stand out, this is an idea perfect for you, Just follow our three simple steps:

Step 1: Draw your shape
Take a pencil to mark the outline on walls. For circles, use a pin and string to help achieve an even and symmetrical finish.

Step 2: Choose your colour and paint
To create a look similar to the photo, choose Chartreuse Mix – one of ten vibrant shades from our Feature Wall range. To view the full range of colours, please click here.

Step 3: Mask your wall and paint again

After waiting for the circle to dry, use strips of masking tape to create the cross. After this, simply paint between the two strips of masking tape using Scrumptious to create perfect lines on your feature wall.

For a video tutorial on how to achieve this look, head to our YouTube channel here

If you’re a creative type who likes to get stuck in and make things for your home, then why not make your very own Christmas decorations this year?

Our Metallic paint range is ideal for adding an element of sparkle. The six mesmerising colours can be used to paint all types of wooden accessories such as baubles, snowflakes, stars and even pinecones – silver Sophistication®, golden Millionaire® and purple Dazzle® are great for this.

To see how it’s done, we’ve put together an easy to follow video for our readers. Click here to watch it – Making Christmas More Colourful with Crown Paints.

Not just for painting accessories, the Metallic emulsion can also be used on walls in the home too. For those of you feeling brave, why not try using a stencil to create a pattern on your wall? Our pale gold paint, Striking®, looks fabulous on a darker coloured background. Or if you fancy something a bit more linear, you could try using masking tape to add some stripes.
