What Houzz contributors are saying:
Day 3: Prepare the surfaceSand the POP-treated wall surface till smooth. Demarcate one area for keeping all the tools and make sure that the primer and paints arrive at site. I would advise you to buy the material by Day 3 (for the first phase) and on Day 6 (for the next phase) separately to avoid wastage. Pro tip: Paint and primer come in buckets, which range between 1 and 20 litres. Note that the cost per litre of paint decreases as the volume increases. Try the paint calculator option, which is available on websites of premium paint manufactures like Nerolac and Berger. This tool will give you an approximate estimate of the quantity of paint that you require per room, along with materials and standard labour costs.
11. Of hues and motifs The white Chesterfield sofa and grey walls of this living room of an English-style home by Fadd Studio provide a breather from all the typical colours and prints usually used. The furniture, the pastels and the art – every element in this room seems to have a mind of its own, yet everything comes together harmoniously.
Make pastels play against each otherFor those who prefer a more subdued palette, pastel shades can do wonders by creating a gentler contrast. In this space, Fadd Studio uses different pastel shades to create subtle contradictions. The off-white and pink couches are counterpoised with blue and grey rustic barrels. Even the paintings of the wall are in subdued red and greens to complement the ambience.
