THE MODERN TOUCH: CONTEMPORARY PAINT TREATMENTS
As the way we live and behave continues to be impacted, Mylands has seen its customers experimenting with colour in the home like never before. Moving away from the traditional model of painted walls and off-white ceilings and woodwork, new techniques include:
• Head to toe colour – a full immersion of colour, choosing one shade for the ceiling, walls and woodwork
• Accent ceilings – inverting the traditional formula of painted walls and white ceilings, the ceiling is becoming the hero, often combined with paler tones or off-white walls to make the room feel larger
• Tonal woodwork – choosing the same colour or a similar tone to bring interest without jarring
• Accent woodwork – rather than trying to make the woodwork disappear, selecting a standout colour for a fresh take on a painted interior
With our homes now visible to all, they are becoming a reflection on our personal style and paint is an easy way to bring a sense of fresh feel to a space.
An accent ceiling or painted woodwork is an easy way to introduce colour into your home without it feeling overbearing or having to commit to an entire scheme. For those more confident with colour, a room painted entirely one shade, from skirting to window to ceiling, will feel immersive and modern.
Our homes are now multi-functional – they are spaces for relaxing, working, exercising, and socialising virtually or in real life - and paint is an excellent way to update them without breaking the bank. Our paints our timeless, but with a little bit of imagination the impact of a new paint technique can be remarkable.
