For this art piece, the paint was thinner, and the paper was moved free hand in all directions. You can always play it safe if you’re not confident in your skills, using a neutral colour palette, with one pop of something a little different (eg. silver leaf or bronze).

Reclaimed wooden wall

Reclaimed wood creates a rustic, laid back atmosphere in any room. In the case that budget (or preference!) don’t allow for all four walls to be decorated, alternatively a feature wall with reclaimed wood makes a great natural focal point.
