playful with paint

Regarding my love for the painted wood floor in my last post, I thought I'd share more creative painting ideas.  Paint can pretty much be used on any surface (as long as you do your research and choose the correct type of paint), and can be used in any imaginative way possible. 

The creative use of paint acts as a runner going up this stairway.  The accent stripe and numbers add just the right touch!

The gray and white painted zig-zag pattern on this wood floor gives the monochromatic palette some life and movement.

The design of this room is grounded by a black and white geometric painted seagrass rug.

Add some whimsy to your wall with a painted mirror!  Visit your local thrift store for a mirror of an interesting shape, pick out a stencil of your choice, and paint away!

A celestial mood is created in this space using dark blue tones with white highlights of moons, stars, and clouds.

Add some interest to bamboo shades using stencils, or if you're feeling creative you can freehand!
