Unsame Your Walls

In order to #UnsameYourWalls, you need to make a choice of colour and finish that not only feels new but also really suits the space it's intended for. The decision needs to be based on many aspects of the room from daylight to size and proportion but more than this it needs to feel right for you and inspired by your own style and tastes. Getting creative with your walls and trying out new techniques and finishes can result in truly unique results that you’ll love.
