Painting your woodwork the same colour as your walls is a look that’s increasingly popping up on Pinterest boards, and it’s a decorating trend being used in stylish interiors around the globe.
This tone-on-tone trend is not entirely new; it takes its inspiration from the historical palaces of Europe. Single-colour decorating has long been in vogue because it’s a technique that gives a luxurious feel and – rather than making a room feel smaller, as you might expect – can help exaggerate the size of your space. Plus, if you opt for a rich shade, like the deep mossy green above, it can make a room of any size feel cosy and cocoon-like at the same time. Win win! You can have your chosen colours mixed in either a mid-sheen Satinwood or low-sheen Eggshell.
Single-colour decorating is super-stylish and surprisingly easy to achieve. You can either go for an exact match or choose subtly different shades (as above). Try using the Dulux Visualizer app to help you play around with tones in the same colour family.
To get professional-looking results, choose paints for walls and woodwork with the same finish. Team Dulux Quick Dry Eggshell on your woodwork with a matt paint finish on the walls to create a cool, contemporary space.
If you’re not quite ready to commit to a fully one-tone room, why not start with just one wall and paint a single item – say a radiator or door – in the same shade? If you like the look, you can up the impact by painting a piece of furniture and/or shelving in the same colour.
Finally, when the painting is done, add accessories with stand-out, like high-shine brass ornaments, oversized pot plants, textured throws or an expertly styled bookshelf.
