Wall painting and decorating ideas for Indian homes

I have recently made an extension of my home by adding an extra room with attached bathroom on my top floor. I wanted to make sure that I transform its look and feel with nice wall painting and other home decorating tricks. It’s a 4 X 4 room with an attached bathroom. I have colored it with white paint (plaster of Paris), added two black wooden tribal statues that I have recently bought from South Africa. I also installed a beautiful chandelier with matching colors and light. I bought my white furniture set made of Beth to suit it. After doing all these still I felt like something is missing. Then I applied few creative ideas to transform the looks of my room.

I have been working with several interior designers and industry experts and I have seen a lot of their work. I am sharing some awesome wall painting and decorating tips and ideas that you can use. You ready? Let’s get started then.

Since my room was not that big, I have got limited options but I still managed to give a proper makeover to my room. The idea is to cover the open places of the wall and do something creative to make it interesting while retaining the simplicity.

Hang mirrors on the wall

No matter what, you got to stick to the traditional basics, I have done that too. I hung a beautiful wall mirror on the opposite side of the door entrance. Mirrors not only reflects the right amount of light to make the room glow with a pleasant aura, but also make the room look bigger, the colors also look more vibrant if the mirrors are placed in the right places.  Anyone coming inside will directly face it and the light will reflect to their eyes creating a welcoming effect. Remember one thing though; that you should avoid placing the mirrors opposite to your bed from where you can directly face them while sleeping. It is not recommended according to the Vaastu. It can also scare the hell out of you if accidentally you woke up in the middle of night and see an image staring at you in the dark (I have experienced it, although it is my own image I got very nervous the first time it happened to me).

Colors are the matter of personal choice, my personal favorite is plain white, you can also experiment a lot with colors as various kind of colors are available in the market for various purpose walls.  Just make sure it is not too loud and suits the overall looks of the room and while matching the upholstery colors like your sofa or other furniture. Also consider the color of your floor before finalizing the color for your walls. Since it is one of the most important factors of the whole process of decoration you should not proceed if you are confused with the color. Just seek the advice of a professional home decorator in that case.

Just make an attractive pattern of the plates and place them gently over the surface of your walls. If you have a sofa on a particular room, it will be wise to place the setup over the sofa set.

Yarn Scraps

When you have made your mind to throw away your old warns scraps as now a days no one is interested to weave sweaters. But you should think again before throwing them out, as they can be a great way to give your wall a colorful delight. Just get hold of a broad and wide glass frame which has got enough space to fit the yarns inside it. Then fill it with a pattern of yarns with different colors.
