But what if the potential disadvantages, on the contrary, aggravate? We offer several design methods painting the walls in the apartment (with photo), which are worth adopting.
We started painting the wall – drop this business halfway. It does not have to be completely painted. You can, as in the example in the photo, set yourself a frame in advance and limit the painting perimeter with masking tape. And you can do without it – let the edges turn out to be uneven.
Advice: Paint deliberately sloppy all the walls – or just one, which will become the brightest accent in the interior. If you want carelessness only in details, paint the entire wall evenly with the exception of the upper edge near the ceiling itself.
Not completely painted over, as if shabby and battered by time, the walls also look spectacular. Especially if the surface is brick or stone (or successfully imitates one or the other). So, armed with a brush, you don’t have to try too hard – and the interior will immediately acquire a touch of rustic or loft style.
Paint overlaps, which are usually considered a defect, may not spoil, but decorate the interior. It is even better to paint with several shades at once – get a fashionable wall design in the apartment.
Idea: Create an ombre effect with smooth color transitions from dark to light – or just use two or three harmoniously combined shades when working.

The apogee of careless painting is a wall with paint streaks from floor to ceiling. This finish resembles street graffiti and turns an ordinary wall into a real art object. A “leaky” surface can even be left empty and not decorated with anything – it is so beautiful and self-sufficient in itself.
Advice: Choose one primary color as the background, and let the contrasting color paint flow freely from top to bottom.
Another option is to draw the “paths” with your own hands. Follow the same principle as when decorating a cake with cream roses or baking meringues. Pour the paint into the “syringe” (a transparent envelope file with a cut off corner will do) and draw to your health. Finish unpainted areas with a brush.
Turn the walls of the room into an artistic canvas – paint them with large strokes in the spirit of impressionism. The plot for such a “picture” is optional, you also do not need special drawing abilities. Choose colors that are pleasing to the eye – and go!
Advice: If the result obtained is somewhat embarrassing, the most unsuccessful strokes can be hidden. For example, hang on these sections of the wall frames with photos – or with paintings of all the same impressionists.
To refresh the interior, it is enough to place bright accents by “staining” the walls and ceiling with splashes of paint. The reception is guaranteed to attract the attention of guests and help hide minor surface defects: for example, minor traces of a “flood” caused by neighbors from above.

The combined painting of the walls of an apartment in two colors is a painstaking task that requires great care and attention. After all, the line must be drawn perfectly evenly, parallel to the floor. Or not? The uneven border of two colors looks funny and lively, gives dynamics to the interior and helps to emphasize separate zones of one room.
Are your hands trembling with excitement before such a responsible event as a repair? Great, so it’s time to start.
