A boldly painted ceiling is THE decorating trend of 2020, but are you brave enough?
Changing the colour scheme from a bold blue to an invigorating green, Daniela has taken the painting one step further by painting the ceiling too – and we highly approve.
She has also put in a new vinyl flooring and fetching green accessories – to match her plants nonetheless.
Daniela's bathroom before
The bathroom beforehand had a marine/coastal vibe with sea creatures and hues of blue.
Explaining the change of shade Daniela tells us, ‘I repainted the walls and the ceiling, a beautiful green. Before choosing the colour I first chose my new towels (Ikea) which are green and matched all the plants – I already had in the bathroom. The choice of colour came from this, I wanted a colour that went well with these two elements.'
A great way to determine a new colour scheme – think about the room as a whole and how all your furnishings will fit with the new shade.
Ingeniously Daniela actually matched the paint to said towels, 'I had the paint mixed in the paint shop for roughly £25, using one of the towels and choosing a shade very similar and slightly lighter.'
Daniela's bathroom after – with painted ceiling
What a transformation. The newly painted ceiling, lush tropical shower curtain and bamboo light fitting makes this bathroom space a sanctuary of serene green, inspired by nature.
We love how the colour on the ceiling helps to create an encompassing feeling. Thanks to the all-white sanitaryware and tiles the green doesn't feel overwhelming.
Daniela's post has generated a lot of love – with many loving the new tropical shower curtain in particular.
With supportive members saying, ‘Fantastic styling, so beautiful👏❤️’ and ‘I love the wall colour in both pics!!! You have a great eye! The new shower curtain is heaven! X’.
We have the info for you, it's from Amazon.
'I bought the floor online of the brand Gerflor, for less then £169, but from Bricoflor. They have a better price. In the stores they wanted twice as much for the same product. I did my research of almost a year before deciding on this.'
Going on to say, 'I was afraid to buy the floor online. But I did and I don't regret it. It's excellent quality, ideal for the bathroom. It is very resistant and a little thicker than what you can buy in a DIY store.'
'For this reason it was even more complicated to install it. But with a little help and the right knife can be easier.'
Daniela shows us that DIY can be done to perfection, if you do your homework.
