One of the common questions I get from parents is “what shall we do with the walls?”. Plain walls can sometimes lack character and wallpaper is fantastic but can work out too expensive for some budgets. So I love to come up with ways to make paint interesting, or use decals and stencils to add impact to my clients rooms.
If you have a steady hand and a bit of patience you can easily create effects like these H+B Kids rooms, all you need is two paint colours, some masking tape and a little bit of imagination!

There is a great tutorial on A Beautiful Mess on creating a statement wall such as this one below using stencils. What I love about it is that you only need a few materials, and your time. The wall can be any colour you like and the same goes for the paint pen – you can go for a high contrast like a dark wall with a light pen, a dark pen with a light toned wall or for a more subtle effect chose the same colour for both the walls and your paint pen with a different shade/depth of colour!

Another idea I used for a client recently is a confetti style wall and you can do this a few different ways. Chose the colours for your ‘confetti’ (in my design we used raindrop shaped confetti) – it can be the same colour (as shown below) or different colours. Cut out the shape of the confetti either using coloured contact/self-adhesive paper or scraps of paper adhered to the wall using double sided tape.

The best part is you can chose any shaped confetti you want – stars, circles, diamonds the list really is endless. For the H+B Kids design we are using different sized raindrop shapes, or you can choose to keep them all the same. Stay tuned for more tips from H+B Kids in the coming weeks!
