A house is where you reside while a home is what you create. A home reflects the personality of the one residing in it. Whether it is designing your rooms with aesthetic decor or painting it up with colours of your taste, creativity within your home will speak of who its residents are.
We often hear people say, “walls have ears”. Well not just ears, they even have the ability to speak. Confused? It’s you who gives them that voice, and the same voice speaks to you through colours and designs. The colour style you decide shapes the personality of your home and later your own mood as our homes have the ability to affect our mood.
Here’s a bunch of some innovative painting ideas, choose the best one for your walls:

If you’ve never seen a patterned paint roller, then you are in for a big treat! Patterned rollers are nothing but rollers that have miniature designs or pictures moulded into their surface. It includes two rollers, the patterned roller which makes contact with the wall and the secondary roller that picks up the paint to leave back the imprints. If you wanted something on the lines of a wallpaper but were afraid that it could get ruined soon, try patterned roller painting. You can choose your designs and create your customised design wall!
