Bubblegum blues flow down walls and over display shelves for a soothing, summery effect. Use all of your favourite pastel shades and paint left over from other projects for a boho-chic patchwork wall. Paint second-hand frames in the same colour as your wall for a high-impact focal point. Embrace the beauty of nature with a stenciled design of gently falling leaves - as easy to achieve as it is on the eye. Grass bought from a nursery was the inspiration for this impressive mural in the Ligne Roset showroom in Johannesburg. Give your bedroom a touch of the exotic with North African-inspired painted tiles in two tranquil tones of blue. Turn an old wooden table into the perfect setting for tea with a lively chequered design in sunny colours. Shades of green paint and a few Oriental touches can turn a less-than-welcoming hallway into a place where you can hang your hat. A modern wall clock sits quite comfortably within the sinuous lines of a handsome painted grandfather clock.
