Orange-hue color blocks convert this formerly neutral living room into a hot spot of color.
Color choices were based on the room's accessories and furniture -- specifically, the sunny hue of the chair and lamp.
Leaving strips of the original wall color tones down the bright color addition, frames the various shades of paint color, and adds a crisp, casual note to the room.
For a similar look, use your room's dimensions to determine the size of color blocks. Measure the width to each wall and divide it into equal parts, allowing for space between blocks and in the corners.
To avoid choppiness, keep each window and doorway within one color block. For added interest -- and less math work -- vary block widths.
Follow these steps to create the color-block walls.
