John's House - Painting at Wamberal

Wamberal is a coastal suburb of the Central Coast just north of Terrigal. John and his wife have a big and beautiful home there and we enjoyed using a few subtle colour contrast painting techniques here.

The paint colour of most of the main living areas is called Pebble Bay, and the cornice where the wall meets the ceiling is painted in Milk Cloud. Milk Cloud is also used as a wall colour in some bedrooms and Aria Ivory was used in corridors and the walls by the stairs.

The style is a traditional style of painting in keeping with a grand house with traditional features. It picks out the cornice and ceiling rosettes to provide some contrast and definition to the rooms.

The colours we used while painting at Wamberal are strong neutrals, that enhance the owner's choices in interior decor. The window woodwork colour was tinted a little darker to harmonise the gloss paint on the frames to the flat cornice colour.

We were also asked whether we could paint some tiles. White Knight make a tile paint product which we used to blend these small tiled areas with the colours in the rest of the house.
