A question I ask my other half a lot when we talk about redecorating is if we can add a feature wall somewhere.
I’m a creative person and I definitely have the confidence in choosing a vibrant or bold wallpaper and making it work. Not because I have the best taste, but because it would suit my personally to have something a bit ‘out there’ in my house. I’d love something like a black and white striped wallpaper or maybe even a zig zag!
He’s not so keen. His worry is once we have a wallpaper, we’ll be stuck with it. But if I had my own way, we’d be looking for something contemporary and quirky. To convince him to look at feature walls, I’ve asked some of my blogging buddies to share their feature walls from their own homes and why they love them.
“We have this as a feature wall in Freddie’s London themed room. The rest of the walls are white so it’s a nice bright room and curtains are blue. I am never, ever bold like this but I absolutely love it! It works so well and is such a talking point” https://
We have this in my daughter’s bedroom. I love the metallic rose gold finish, but it’s also quite retro. www.aslummymummy.com
As we’ve lived in 3 rented properties in the last five years we’ve always made use of feature walls, whether that be with statement paper, vinyls or paint. I think it’s a great way to bring a bit of your own personality to a property. Also it’s really inexpensive so you can change it on a whim. Http://hibabyblog.co.uk
I’ve two really quirky walls in our house. I love being creative and making our house a bit quirky. I always think if it doesn’t work, we can always redecorate. – ourfairytaleadventure.com
We have this in our spare room. I really like feature walls, especially if there is a colour that’s easy to match accessories with. www.digitalmotherhood.com
We have this in our bedroom. It’s a bit crazy but it gives us colour ‘options’ for duvet covers and accessories! www.packthepjs.com
I’ve got this wallpaper in our bedroom. It was actually given to me by my mum after she changed her mind about it. I’d never thought to have a feature wall before, but I’m so glad I did as it’s completely changed the look of the room, and was the starting point for styling the rest of the room! www.dovecottageblog.com
We have this feature wall in our living room in our 1970s house. Everyone that comes in comments on the wallpaper! Www.maidenheadmum.co.uk
We have a feature wall in our bedroom. We are moving soon and I wish we could take it with us! www.allaboutamummy.co.uk
Our feature wall is up our stairs and I love it! It has quite a shiny quality to it which I think brightens the room up nicely! www.ablondeandababy.com
I love our bedroom feature wall – the room is so dark we were limited to having white on the walls, so it was a great way to add interest and personality to the room. I get so many compliments on the pattern! www.hotpinkwellingtons.co.uk
We have a big feature wall in our living room. It was purple which was a bit imposing so this time we scaled it back to lighter colours and it opened up the room. www.nomipalony.com
I have this as a feature wall in my bedroom….well worth the money spent on it! www.allthebeautifulthings.co.uk this ticked all my boxes.
Hmm, not so much wallpaper but i love a gallery wall which is technically a feature wall, right? Having a gallery wall allowed us to have frames filled with family photos but also some art and other beautiful things. I think its a different dimension to the room having more than just flat frames on a wall. www.theunlikelydad.com
I have to say, I’m loving these feature walls. There’s a couple I would LOVE in my bedroom. The rose gold retro triangles is totally my taste, and I love the birds much more than I thought I would.
Do you have a feature wall in your house?
