Uplifting citrus tones work best when framed by Pure Brilliant White. Using “Summer Season” Breatheasy Matt in a room with ample natural light, or adjacent to a garden view will create an illusion of open space as well as a feeling of spring freshness.
Tips: Use short pile rollers for smooth walls, long pile for rough surfaces, or smooth gloss rollers for trim and radiators. You might need roller extensions for stair wells or extended roller arms for getting down the back of radiators. Buy brushes of various sizes, to help you get in every corner, and give you a perfect finish. Use large brushes where the roller won’t go, then smaller brushes (such as the edging brush) for painting edges and corners neatly.
Enjoy tea and cakes with “Powder Blue” BreatheasyMatt as the backdrop for this Georgian inspired room. Complete the look with upcycled vintage accessories and furniture with a distressed effect, using “Milk White” Quick Dry Gloss.
Tips: Use matchpots or left over paint on accessories for the finish touch to your room makeover. Check batch numbers on the can. Sometimes colour can vary slightly from batch to batch, if you need to use more than one can mix the two together to ensure consistency.
Using colour on every surface can dramatically alter the appearance of a room. Applying colour to the ceiling, for example, will not only create a talking point but can make a room appear larger or smaller depending on the colour choice and how it is applied. Here we’ve extended the colour down from the ceiling and onto the walls, which gives the effect that the ceiling extends much higher than it actually is.
Tips: Paint and mount wooden boxes to display your favourite possessions. Use colour to make a room appear much larger. Create the illusion of height by painting the ceiling, or use darker colours on recesses or short walls makes a room appear larger.
For working spaces that inspire, use colours to reflect the task at hand. We’ve used Breatheasy Mid Sheen in “Powder Blue”, “Gentle Yellow” and “Pashmina” to suit this creative work area. Make the most of recesses and storage space to add to the overall design. “Fairy Dust” Mid Sheen adds depth to the adjoin wall colours and durable “Smoky Mist” Quick Dry Gloss complements perfectly.
Tips: Use recess areas to their maximum advantage, using a darker colour will add a sense of depth and make a room look larger. Use masking tape to define wall areas you might want to paint in different colours.
Colour is stimulating and emotive so it’s important to get the balance just right when decorating a child’s bedroom. Use colours that reflect personality, but balanced with tranquil pastels. In this case “So Sweet” is married with “Lavender Scone” and “Chance” all in Breatheasy Mid Sheen.
Tips: Crown Breatheasy finishes are 99% solvent free with virtually no odour and are ideal for rooms that need to be used straight after painting. Masking and covering up is essential for protecting all the things that you don’t want to get covered in paint, but it’s also a massive time saver in the long run.
