100+ Interior Painting Ideas

Sometimes you want a new look for a room but your budget is limited to paint?  Am I right?  Have you been there?  Or if you are there right now, I thought it would be fun to look at a round up of creative painting ideas, and when I say creative, some are on the crazy side but SO cool!  These ideas may not be right for every single room in your house, in fact, I would use these ideas sparingly so you don’t get overloaded, but there are definitely some great ideas for using paint around… so here you go!

P.S. The great thing is, if you have a decent base color a lot of these ideas can be accomplished with just a pint or I daresay a sample sized paint purchase on top of that original paint color, so that sounds pretty budget friendly to me.

Also, some of these ideas might be wallpaper or some other type of surface, but I think the idea could be done in paint which is why I shared those images. Enjoy!

    What a fantastic round up of painted walls, I have saved this to my favourites as I know Ill be back for ideas soon! I used the colour block (teal/white/black) photo as inspiration to paint stripes on my entrance wall – it started out as light grey and dark grey but after knocking a chunk out the wall just weeks after I finished it, I added a teal stripe as well and absolutely love it :) You can see my stripe project here http://jarrahjungle.blogspot.com.au/2012/10/the-painted-stripes-project-take-2.html

    I love all of these! Especially the gray birds in that mudroom, do you have the link to where you found it?

    This is such a fantastic collection of ideas! I love the idea of writing an entire chapter of a book on a wall–totally something I would do! A lot of these ideas would be easy to do with wall decals and removable wallpaper like that you can find over at WallsNeedLove.com. There are polka dots, birds on a wire, and lots of stripes in every imaginable color. Plenty of chevron removable wallpaper in lots of colors, too.
    Thanks for the great post!
