The key to a successful watercolor wall is selecting the right colours. Using complementary colours like orange and blue, you are sure to make a WOW statement. Varying in shades of each, it feels fresh and interesting.

For a calm, more serene look, go with shades of one colour. In this case, the lavender and plum hues are soft and alluring. Paired with creams and just a pop of green in small doses, the room strikes the perfect balance!

Take inspiration from these stunning rooms, and try it on a wall at home! If the commitment of a whole watercolour wall is out of your comfort zone, invest in large watercolor canvas art! It is a great way to inject colour into a room, and gives you flexibility!
