    For a more daring look, you could spend the long weekend experimenting with colour blocking. The joy of the offer is that as long as the paints are the same brand and equal in price, you can mix and match bold shades like these.

    To achieve this look, start by painting the wall white. Then use a good masking tape – we always use Frog Tape – to divide off the sections for painting
