Feature walls drab or fab?

Posted on May 18 2010

I have also steered away from feature statement walls – you know the thing one wall wallpapered or treated in a very different way to the rest. But then I have one myself a double height wall papered in bookcase wallpaper and I adore it. It works for me at least I guess because the wall in question is very much a loner, double height glass doors sit right along next to it so it doesn’t feel so odd. Often times I see it in bedrooms behind the bed one wall making a statement with the remaining walls quietly sitting in the shadow. Whilst I would advise to go the whole hog and treat all the walls the same its far more cohesive in my opinion  I came across this image photographed by the fabulous Damian Russell which shows just how fabulously feature walls can work. That’s what I love about interior design -  ideas are constantly  challenged and provoked, boundaries constantly pushed – the result BEAUTIFUL.

Painted an inky black the feature fireplace wall looks fabulous in this apartment mainly because furniture (the table and dark vases) reflect the colour of the wall.  The yellow adds a zingy mesmerising touch
