|CREATE IT YOURSELF||DECOR TIPS TO ENHANCE YOUR KID'S ROOM|
|1 October 2013|
Feel like sprucing up your child’s room but don’t know where to start? Here’s how you could easily transform your kid’s room into a creative space, bursting with your child’s personality.
Stencil, Colour, & Stripes
In this episode of Create It Yourself, we’ll look into creatively enhancing an existing feature wall in your kid’s room. For a subtle but effective touch, simply give your child’s feature wall a quick and easy facelift. When confronted with a smaller room, create an illusion of space and height by choosing lighter, pastel tones and vertical stripes. Use wall stencils to express his or her personality and achieve results that your kid’s would adore.
Accessorise, Accessorise, Accessorise
Replace or add accessories like wall art, coloured curtain fabrics or even a pin board for that added personal touch. Accessorising the room with personalised items will take it from bland to bright instantly.
Here’s a Step-by-Step guide to achieve this look:
1. Always go with contrasting tones when choosing
2. Add stencil art for a personalised touch.
|3. Mask your wall with stripes & start painting the base layer thoroughly. Wait for it to dry before removing tape. (2hrs)||4. Vertical stripes create an illusion of height, while lighter tones give a sense of spaciousness.|
