Whether your style is bold and bright or soft and subtle, a freshly painted dresser, chair or table will revive your interiors and introduce a splash of your favourite hues to your home.
If you’ve got a neutral space that you’d like to liven up, up-cycling an old piece of furniture with a bright colour will refresh your room in no time. Using an earthy shade, such as Olive Green or Dark Grey Green is a great way to bring some of the outdoors in.
Painting furniture is the easiest way to introduce interest in a child’s room. Upcycle an old chest of drawers by painting each drawer in a different colour or bring a stylish twist to their toys. It also allows for more versatility, it’s much easier to update the colours of their furniture against neutral walls than repainting the entire space.
We don’t always want our furniture to stand out, especially when in a smaller room. To stop things feeling cluttered and to create the illusion of more space, paint your cabinets in the same colour as the walls and watch them disappear.
Make it Bright
Lately I’ve been painting our furniture to white. Maybe I’ve been inspired by the snow we have outside but in general I like things bright and airy. Hyggeligt. But painting everything white is not always as easy as some of us might think. In my next blog I will explain why.
