Dress up your wall with these 7 paint patterns!

If your living room is missing that oomph factor, perhaps all you need is a feature wall to shake things up a bit. You don’t have to purchase expensive wallpaper or a giant piece of artwork, all you need is your imagination and a bit of paint. Simple paint patterns can be enough to give your room a touch of colour, and would definitely brighten up a child’s room as well.

If you don’t have time to do it yourself, Dulux offers professional paint services. The services include not just moving your furniture while the team paints, but a one-year warranty, too! You can find out more about it here, and the Dulux team will be more than happy to help with your creative painting ideas. Here are seven ideas to get you started:

bedroom, painted headboard
Let the geometric shapes do the talking! The simple colours help draw attention to the design, which brings a modern touch to your home.

dulux, living room
Bright and bold colours can be used together in varying amounts. As shown in the picture, a small strip of the brightest hue in the colour scheme is enough to make the look pop.

ombre paint, dulux
A whimsical touch to any room, the ombre painting technique gives any room a subtle, breezy feel.

greyscale, paint,
Give the chequered look a twist by playing with the sizes of each box. For example, this owner matched the width of the centre row of chequers with the headboard.

stripes, nautical paint,
For that nautical look, opt for blue and white stripes. The calming tones of the blue hue are perfect for a nursery.

A simple splash of diamonds, also known as a harlequin design, is a welcome surprise in any home. Stick to the same colour scheme as the rest of your home for a subtle but delightful change in texture.


The easiest paint pattern to master, a big strip of colour is all you need to dress up a room.

The go-to paint for homes with kids is the Dulux’s Wash & Wear with Kidproof Technology. Unlike other paints, the low-odour Wash and Wear paint repels stains, spills and makes stain removal a breeze for busy parents.
