It's Friday and I have a feeling this weekend is going to be a good one! I love how truly versatile paint is and thought it would be fun to share these ideas of how to use paint in a totally different way! Check out these inspiring ways to create a focal point in a kids' space.

I love how this simple mountain paint creates a subtle but effective background to this neutral space.

This painted corner is perfect for creating a personalized side to this shared room.

I love the house shape for all kinds of decor for kids, and this use of chalkboard paint creates just the right effect for the play kitchen to pop!

I've shared my love of the half wall trend before and truly any space with this dreamy light, those high ceilings and that gorgeous floor is fail-proof, but the half wall of black paint (and the innovative use of it on the armoire too!) is to die for!

Have a great weekend everyone!


Maybe it's me, but it seems like everywhere I turn, kids rooms are being painted with a 'half wall' or 'colour blocked wall'. Although it's not entirely new, the trend seems to be growing with more and more amazing rooms created using this simple paint work. I love that it transforms a space so easily, something you could do in a weekend with such low cost.

Starting off with one of my all time favourite kids rooms that feels cozy and perfectly pulled together at the same time. How dreamy are the colours?

This fun and playful boys room has just the burst of colour it needs to make the wall decor, like these wall shelves pop.

If you have a small wall or little nook, this trend is perfect behind a desk to carve out a special work area. Just love that globe on the shelf too!

The dusty rose, mix of plywood and subtle hints of copper are a colour combination I adore. That DIY desk is everything!!!

Mixing rich wood tones and this dark blue creates a room that feels vintage and modern at the same time. As you probably know, I love kids pillows and these animal ones on the bed are so cute!

Love the blackboard bottom and the giant plywood letters, but that gymnastics pommel bench steals the show by bringing in such a warm and worn in vibe to the playroom that feels so unique and special.

If you love this look, you can find more of this trend over on Pinterest on my Half Wall board. To achieve this look in your own kids' room, I recommend painting the bottom colour 40" up from floor to top of feature colour.
