Do Feature Walls Still Spin Your Wheels?

Do Feature Walls Still Spin Your Wheels?

This is going to be a short blog post as I want you to comment on what you think about feature walls.

I recently visited a house, it is about 10 years old and crammed with feature walls. I found the hairs on my arms rise as I moved from room to room, it really was not a nice feeling.

The problem with the feature walls was the contrast, or too much of it. Off white walls with heavy dark colors like aubergine (right purple/black) in the bedroom, an even darker version in the formal living room, but not the whole wall only part of it! Deep forest green in one bedroom, royal blue in another.....can you visualize it? It was just to hard on your eyes and the rooms didn't flow and it became a joke, oh, I wonder what color they have pulled out of the color swatch for the next room?

Successful interior decoration should be considered, harmonious and pleasant to the eye at a minimum! Does this mean NO to feature walls? Here is where I want your opinion. I have written a couple of articles on this topic in the past, you could read them, then make a comment below about what you think.

I will let you know what I think about feature walls in my next post, or perhaps I will just make a comment with the rest of you.
