Do you have an old piece of furniture that you would like to repaint and give it a new look? Have you ever thought of painting it the same color as the wall on which it rests? This is indeed a trend that has grown over the last few years: a very simple idea with a surprising and very chic result.
The camouflage effect that is created between the wall and furniture is beautiful and has a visually high-impact, it immediately creates an original and personal atmosphere.
In addition, painting the pieces of furniture with the same color of the wall creates a continuity effect that allows you to visually gain space and it seems to make the room wider and less full of furniture … it is therefore an excellent solution for small spaces. And then you can also save money in painting 🙂

If you do not want to color an entire piece of furniture, you can think of painting some small shelves or, why not, some picture frames.
The same concept can also be applied to architectural elements such as doors: in my opinion the effect of continuity between the wall and door is very chic, the door seems to disappear as if it was the door of a secret room.
And why not painting with the same color of the wall those elements that are a bit “ugly” but essential in the home as for example the radiators? With a touch of color we manage to make them almost disappear from view. I am sure that in these photos you have trouble seeing them.
I hope to have given you another original idea on how to use color in your home.
If I should paint my roon doors and my living room display cabinet in the same color?
Dear Christine, yes I think you should do it, it is a simple way to add character and color to the rooms. and the result is really beautiful!

Monet did this in his home. The book Monet’s House is a beautiful example.
Really? I didn’t know, I’ll go check it! 🙂

I have a white brick fireplace on one wall and a long cabinet with TV above it on the other wall. My walls are light grey/blue. Can I paint the cabinet the same color as the walls?
What kind of paint would you use? Wall emulsion on wooden furniture?
