  3. Apart from painting you can also go in for murals or wallpapers for your rooms which create the ambience that you intend to accomplish.

Doors, Floor and Furniture

  1. With the walls being done let’s move to the doors and windows. Paint the borders, with the color contrasting to the wall.
  2. For windows, choose drapes that reach the floor, which even when open enhances your room color against the wall backdrop.
