Paint colours can make or break a room, so it’s really important to get it right. Have a look at the after and before photos.
As part of the refurbishment of an older house in Galston, NSW, I for Style chose to use a stunning range of paint colours for the living room. The existing green paint colour used on all the walls made the room looked dark and unwelcoming (second photo). Added to that, the slate fireplace dated the room, and the clients were debating whether to replace it.
Once the room had been painted with a fresh, new paint colour palette however, not only did it change the whole look and feel of the room; visually opening it up and giving it a modern, airy feel, it also allowed the slate fireplace to stand out as the ‘piece de resistance’, the focal point of the room.
The paint colour above the fireplace compliments the colours in the slate while the paint colour on the rest of the walls is the perfect backdrop to the picturesque, rural views seen from the windows.
