If you’re after something a little more elaborate than plain walls and ceilings in your space, wide stripes can be the perfect solution. Not only do they give you scope for combining colours, they create a striking graphic result that will make your room fizz!
In this episode of Changing Rooms, Russell and Jordan took the stripes up onto the ceiling to extend the wraparound look, transforming the room and adding character and visual interest. But how do you go about creating the effect?
The key to success, as always, is in the planning. Decide on the optimum number and width of your stripes (see the Expert tip below) and then use a template to make your life easier. Creating chalk guidelines with a piece of string and sealing your masking tape with the base colour first will also help to create crisp edges between each colour. Once you’ve mastered these easy techniques, you’ll be amazed at the professional result you can achieve.
