Paint Pattern Ideas

Happy Friday, everyone! How are you all doing? As you know, lately I’ve been posting about redecoration ideas on a budget, and this week I thought I’d break it down to specifics. It’s time to go back to basics, do it yourself, and get those paint brushes out! Bring out the inner artist in you and go creative on your walls to really revamp the look of your home!

Geometric Stamping
Give a unique twist to your walls by using triangle or diamond patterns. The sea green and olive brown colors are subtle and leave a refreshing impression. White furniture will balance it out and make the colors stand out.



Watercolor Bubbles
This fun and literally bubbly pattern is easily achieved with watercolor, dish soap, and drinking straws. You can choose to go with bright colors or any complementary palettes (eg. blue and gray).


Color Washing
Go simple and go for the whitewashed effect. It’s clean, minimal, and stands out against dark surfaces, such as in the picture above.


Get inspiration from marble patterns to make a bold, funky statement. This technique was achieved by tracing the patterns on paper and sending them to the copy shop to be printed on canvases. Pretty smart, huh?


And of course, you can’t go wrong with stripes. Vertical or horizontal, you can use as many colors and sizes as you like. It’s literally endless combinations for you! Nothing beats this classic but flexible paint technique.
