How to create a graphic and contemporary feature wall

 This bold, contemporary wall feature allows your teenager to give their space a unique, customised look using their choice of three colours. Here, we’ve decorated with a teen girl in mind with navy, vibrant orange and lilac.



How to create a colour-blocked painted feature wall

This colour-blocked feature wall is bold, graphic and just a little unexpected. We’ve created it for a teenage girl’s room, but it could easily be adapted for a boy’s space. This fabulous colour palette of navy, orange and lilac is strong but does not feel overpowering when limited to a single wall.

This would make a great shared project, with your teen taking the lead in choosing the colours. One approach is to start with an item they really love – a cushion, print, bedding, rug, etc – and draw colours from that. Our starting point was the Shhh! pillowcase. The bedlinen, cushions and rug were chosen to tie into this scheme, creating a cohesive look, with a smattering of dots for a touch of pattern.

Feature wall how-to instructions

  1. Paint the entire wall in Resene SpaceCote Low Sheen in Resene ‘Half White Pointer’.
  2. For the large block of navy, measure a rectangle 1.6m high by 1.1m, mask with tape and paint in Resene ‘Blue Night’ (we used Resene SpaceCote Low Sheen). When dry, mask off and paint a rectangle 30cm high by 1.1m wide in Resene ‘Big Bang’ to go on top of the navy block.
  3. For the lilac block (Resene KidzColour ‘Flower Power’) mask off a rectangle 1.2m high and 1.5m wide and paint. The right-hand block of Resene ‘Big Bang’ is 60cm high and 80cm wide and protrudes 30cm beyond the edge of the lilac block.
