Loving this original trend spotted on many interiors lately... Paint outside the box! In other words, create unexpected borders, ombres {shades}, and effects with paint color, add lines where no-one sees lines... No more conformist rules about painting. Here are a few interiors that celebrate with audacity this trend... Fun, fun I tell you!

Imitate the sunlight rays with the use of a lighter paint color

Why stop at the window or the ceiling, keep going!

Invent new lines and shapes, be audacious!

Build a focal point and delimitate two spaces

Not a passage anymore, a "Grand" passage now...

  4. genious! it makes me want to break out my brush and start swiping. this may just make its way to baby bear's room. where whimsy such as this is surely welcome!

    as always, your eye for clever design is spot on.

  23. The pink one is good, and the doorway one is almost good. The rest of them... meh not so much. I'm personally not a fan of the overly contrived oddness for the sake of being weird.

  24. Loving this trend right now, especially the first one! I like that you can't tell the shape it is unless you see it from a particular angle. Quite interesting!
