Shelly's Painting Tips and Tricks - Color Blocking

Looking for a NEW look for your walls?
Are you having a hard time deciding which colour to paint your walls?
Are you looking for a unique and colourful painted wall treatment?
Do you have some extra paint from other paint projects?
Do you want a feature wall in your room?
Do you love lots of color?
Then colour blocking may be for you!


Here are some examples that may help you get inspired.


Colour blocking can be done in whatever block size you choose.


Colour blocking can be done with as many colours as you want or as many colors as you have...


It is particularly fun for children's kids bedroom decor.

I am not only the Designer/Decorator of these colour blocked walls but I have done all of the work too. Unlike some Interior Designers, I actually do most of my own work. These examples are no exception. They were all designed, developed and painted by me, Shelly Whitney.

Notice that the bookshelf and dresser have also been painted into the color blocked theme...for a relatively seamless look. The bed, being painted a completely different colour becomes the focal point of the room. A pink bed cover was later added to perfect the bed as a focal point in all of this color!



A funky room for sure! The yellow and white stripe was actually painted paneling - using the natural lines in the paneling. No need for painting tape (well...almost!) The door was painted with various colors and color blocked shapes - like a piece of art!

Blending color blocking and color washing (for a more subtle effect) make this a fabulous effect. A yellow color wash below the chair rail along with walls in blue and green color washing.
