John Howard Payne chants the theme of home when he writes, “Home, home, sweet, sweet home!” Home is where our love, aspirations and dreams begin. It’s a place where memories are made. The longing for a pleasant home lives in all of us. Every living person on this planet has a unique sense of style that represents who they are, and a home reflects the taste, along with the way of life of the person residing there.
Over the past few years, Pinterest has gained a reputation as the most inspiring online destination among home aficionados. Whether you’re on a mission to burst colors on your walls and on the hunt for some painting schemes, or searching for the inside scoop on the hottest new trends to revamp your very own castle, Pinterest is an impeccable visual discovery engine for any interior project.
We’ve done the research for you and rounded up some Pinterest inspired paintings for your home. Let’s dive in!
It’s not hard to figure out that all of the nicest rooms on your Pinterest boards have white walls, right? The timeless charm of a white room is beyond doubt. But, people often have the mistaken belief that white paint shades are all devoid of color. Well, the truth is, white is not just white! Yellowish, bluish, reddish and even greenish undertones can be seen in white paints.
While choosing a white paint shade, consider the source of light in your space. If your room receives good amount of natural light, then it’s undeniably a good candidate for white walls. We recommend you to avoid going shinier than eggshell white when choosing your wall paint.
Ombre wall decoration is a splendid color technique, using a single paint color gradually flowing into another. This subtle ombre wall technique is not complicated at all. The only challenging part of this wall treatment is deciding on a single color and its two neighboring tones.
If you want to create a gentle, relaxing impression, combine a soft pastel with a medium tint of another color. For a more dramatic look, go ahead with a light to medium shade and work your way up to a richer tone. This magical transition of one color into another is enough to transform a dull space into a slice of heaven!
The hottest new Pinterest trend these days is a stunningly painted ceiling that can transform your space into one out of a million. Painting the ceiling a different color than the rest of the room creates a huge difference and adds drama to a bland space.
From pale blue to bold teal, or an airy shade of lemon yellow, switching up the shade above our heads surely lends the room a more expansive feel.
Grab a stencil and press ahead! Yes, you heard us right. Painting walls with the use of stencils is a fun way to freshen up any surface in your home. It’s hella affordable as well! All you need is a stencil of your choice, a roller, paint of your preference and voila! You are good to go. The end result will absolutely blow your mind.
If you are looking for something unique, a half painted wall might be just the thing. This technique is quite perfect for modern homes. To maintain the illusion of continuity, don’t stop painting the half painted wall at the door. Paint over the door and create a continuous line of color.
The new fad of painting a perfect circle behind the center of bed is sweeping the interior world of Pinterest. It’s such a fascinating way to add pop of color and feature to a bedroom.
Giving your home the Pinterest vibe is much easier than it appears. Just think of your home as a giant canvas. Let your creativity run wild with these inspirations and turn your space into a Pinterest worthy sanctuary.
