Buzzworthy Decorative Paint Ideas for Your Room

You already know that paint has the power to transform a room, but sometimes four walls all in the same color can start to seem a little dull. That’s when it’s time to enter the world of decorative painting. So if you’re ready for a change but not sure what direction to take your room redesign, take a look at the hot new paint decor looks we’ve got in store for you!

1 – Paint your own focal point

If you have been working to give your room a little personality, but aren’t sure what to try, consider this sort of paint as focal point look. Think of it like painting a block on your wall where a large art piece would go. Essentially you’re giving your room a point of interest with simple wall paint. This is a quick and easy weekend project that has the power to completely transform your space.

2 – Faux concrete

If you’re dying for a little more modern or industrial look, concrete is probably on your list of materials you’d love to integrate. It’s an expensive option, however! Enter the incredible power of faux painting to make your walls look like they were hand troweled. Generally, this technique combines two or three colors of paint and a glaze of some kind for the final layers to give that color variation that makes concrete so special.

3 – Twinkle twinkle little star

This paint look thrives on spontaneity and random placement of the stars. You could also go for small circular dots. If you’re not confident about painting stars, consider a stencil, but we love the look of hand-drawn, variation of sizes. You can choose whatever color contrasts you wish, but remember the statement will be stronger if your paint contrast is stark. We love this soft white on soft gray look. Sweet dreams!
