Painting Project Ideas to Brighten Up Grey Days

The days are getting shorter by the minute; the grey weather days are becoming more frequent… November can be a rather gloomy month. But don’t let that affect you! There’s nothing like a fresh coat of paint on your walls to bring some colour into your everyday life.

Shapes to restore shape

When we think of interior painting, we often imagine painting an entire room, from walls to ceiling. This represents a tedious task and, let’s face it, we don’t always have the time or energy to undertake this type of project.

Why not use geometric shapes instead? By dividing up your wall with colour, you can create a whole new space with just a few brushstrokes.

Have you ever thought that an arch painted on a white wall can double as a headboard? This solution, which takes up less space than a piece of furniture, still offers an enveloping effect as well as adding a touch of colour to your bedroom.

By painting the corner of a room symmetrically to the left and right over a defined width, you divide up a space in the room without having to add anything. This is a great way to define an “office” space in a bedroom or living room, for example.


The accent wall, always an integral part of the decor

All it takes is one wall to transform a room! In fact, the accent wall always has a place in our homes. Changing the colour of a wall can totally change the look of the room. Usually, we choose a wall that has no windows, doors or architectural features.

By the way, are you familiar with the optical effects of an accent wall? Depending on which wall you choose to paint in a contrasting colour, your room will be perceived differently:


  • To make a room look wider, paint the back wall and ceiling a different colour.
  • To add depth, paint the back wall a dark colour, while keeping the other 3 walls and the ceiling a light shade.
  • A dark-coloured ceiling will give the impression of a low-ceiling room.
  • To highlight a piece of furniture, such as a bed, add a strong colour behind it to match the furniture.


Reliefs and patterns for creative people

Feeling creative? Dare to go beyond painting! With wallpaper, you can make one wall the main attraction of a room. Patterned wallpaper can be used on an accent wall or in stripes to “carve out” space and attract the eye.

With paintable wallpaper, you don’t even have to choose between covering or painting your wall. You can add an original texture while hiding imperfections, but best of all, you can use the paint colour of your choice to cover it.
