Trick two, marbling, the ultimate eye-catcher

You can use the marbling technique on whole walls or just on particular sections to create a truly eye-catching display. You can create a light marble display by using colours such as white, beige, light yellows, taupe and light grey, these colours work really well together when used in this technique. To create this look start with a white background and then begin to apply your chosen colours using a natural sponge. The trick is to apply spots of the colours onto the wall whilst making sure the white background is still visible. For a natural result, ensure all the colours are evenly distributed.

Trick three, White isn’t always boring

Why not opt for the elegance of the sandstone look and introduce colour with furnishings. White walls can create a unique living environment, especially when painted directly onto plaster as opposed to onto wallpaper as the plaster shows up through the paint. White walls can upset the balance so much that it removes the calm and therefore demands attention, especially when you also introduce colourful furnishings. With a larger budget, you can enhance this look even more by pre-treating the wall with structural plaster.
