How can you Create a Two Tone Wall?

Want to create a stylish two-tone wall that will add impact to your room? Our 7-step guide makes it simple…

Paint can have a transformative effect on any space. This simple split wall effect allows you to bring color to your home and make a stylish statement worthy of a top interior designer, adding drama and depth to any room.

Before you get started, consider the height at which you’re going to split your wall. Dividing lines at picture rail or dado height nod to period features but in a contemporary way. Or you can think about the function of the room and the furniture that will occupy it, creating a line to frame a bed or sofa and create a strong and cohesive look.

Here’s how to transform your room with our simple step-by-step guide:

You will need:

• A tin of each of your chosen paint colors

• A roller and tray

• Pencil

• Measuring tape

• String

• Chalk

• Masking tape

• Paint brushes

    In the cool, industrial-inspired living room, a palette of offbeat pastels, including soft pink and our 2020 Colour of the Year, Tranquil Dawn 45GY 55/052, introduce an airy element and create an inspiring split-effect combination for a living room.

    To make the most of the high ceiling and fashionably low-slung sofa, the wall has been divided at a low level to create a stylishly laid-back atmosphere. Unfussy forms and comfortable seating in tactile wool combined with functional metal pieces and lush green plants create an ultra-relaxed space for modern living.
