3 Designer-Certified Colours For Your Statement Feature Wall

Updated: Oct 19, 2023

Don't get me wrong: I adore a good old Scandinavian interior style, but don't you think a soft feature wall colour instantly brings zen to your space? Whether you want to add a delicate splash of colour or something more unique like a textured paint, this blog has you covered with tips and tricks to help you achieve a gorgeous look for any room in your home.

Here are three colours that are sure to turn heads, so go ahead and embrace the colourful feature wall! Here's how...


​​It's time to bring this colour out of the boys' nursery and use it in some living areas. The navy blue is a safe pick if you want to dabble with colour but are reluctant to go all out. It is a quiet, tranquil, and understated tone. If you like modern interior design, this is a terrific colour to use as a backdrop since it allows your furniture and accessories to shine without drawing too much attention to themselves.

The use of grey curtains, a dark blue headboard, and the addition of deep purple in the pillows as an accent for this room that we've styled, all contribute to a cohesive look and well-thought-out interior design.

TIP: Always make sure to complement your feature wall with accessories around your room! One thing we love to do, is use black or white accessories to pop against that coloured wall.


When looking for a distinctive, natural, yet bold enough green paint colour, a dusty green is everything. From living rooms to bedrooms, this colour is always a big hit with our clients! That's proof of its undeniable appeal. We love to pair a dusty green with soft wood textures and black accents for visual contrast, and finish the look with a complimentary colour such a soft blush pink.

TIP: Don’t know which wall is your feature wall? Find the surface that is either the first thing you see when you walk into the space or where your main furniture is situated.


What’s old is new again! Limewash has been making an appearance over the past few years and we’re loving it. Limewash is a mineral-based mixture (commonly from limestone) that has been around for centuries but is now making a huge statement in interiors. Whenever this all natural wall finish is used, it immediately adds more depth, texture and richness to any room in the home. Plus it’s environmentally friendly!
