Cold and dreary winter weather means more time is spent indoors – the perfect excuse to spruce up your interior spaces with these quick and easy painting and decorating projects.
Painting on the ceiling
When thinking about adding an unexpected feature to a room, don’t forget the ceiling! A vibrant tone such as Resene Sakura helps make a room feel expansive, while a dark deep hue like Resene Baltic Sea creates a cosy and inviting vibe. If you like to be able to wipe fly marks and dust off your ceiling, make sure you use Resene SpaceCote Flat washable wall and ceiling paint for an easy-to-clean finish.
Beat the winter blues and brighten up your space by painting a feature wall. It’s a great way to add colour without committing to painting your entire room. Dark or bold Resene colours create a dramatic effect, while light tones can make a space feel more open. For most walls all you need is a quick clean and then you can start painting – no priming needed. Apply two topcoats of Resene SpaceCote Low Sheen and sit back and enjoy your new look room.
Wallpapering is a simple winter project you can finish in a weekend. The key is to choose a pattern that complements the room’s existing decor and colour scheme – a quick trip to your local Resene ColorShop will help with design inspiration. Prepare the wall properly before wallpapering and follow the wallpaper instructions carefully. Add artwork or shelving that complements your new wallpaper to create a cohesive look.
