Create a chateau-worthy doorway, a wide border will add impact to an existing architrave and make period living room details, modern. Use low-tack masking tape to mask out a band around your door frame. Paint the band and wall decoration (before fixing it to the wall) using matt emulsion. When dry, paint out a small strip along the top of the band, and fix the wall decoration in place using No More Nails. Paint skirting in the same colour. If your skirting is narrower than your band, continue with the emulsion above it to create the same width of band.
Spotting a painted wall online that used lots of different shades of paint and big triangular shapes, the owners were keen to replicate the look. ‘We decided on different shapes of white, grey and peachy-pink for something unusual,’ they say.
Use lighting to your advantage, mark out a living space with an overhanging pendant light and carefully positioned round coffee table. The two pieces work together to create a focal point around which you can sit a couple of chairs and add floor cushions or stools when guests visit. Here, a selection of accessories and books are displayed on industrial-style open shelving to create a relaxed feel without hiding the beautiful texture of a slate feature wall.
