Create Your Own Two-Toned Wall

Create Your Own Two-Toned Wall

Blurring the lines: This two-tone wall (good for the non-perfectionists among us) was spotted on the Norwegian company Lady Premium Paint & Colors blog. All that’s needed: a roller, some painter’s tape and a steady hand.

Here’s how to recreate the look. To see the full tutorial, go to Lady.

Above: A springlike bedroom featuring a blurry two-tone olive and ecru wall.

Above: Use a long-handled paint roller to achieve the look.

Above: Demarcate the paint zones with painter’s tape.

Above: The finished look is pleasingly informal.

If there's no article about this kind of simple things, how will people, who have no previous knowledge do?
