The Colour Edit: Slatted Wall Panelling - Colourtrend Paints

February 15, 2024 3 min read

Wall panelling, in general, has been a long-lasting interior trend, adding elegance and charm to various spaces. However, slatted wall panelling takes this trend to a new level by introducing a contemporary twist. One of the most appealing aspects of the slatted wall panelling trend is its accessibility for DIY. The installation process is relatively straightforward, making it an enticing project for anyone looking to upgrade their interiors without professional help, so why not take on the challenge and transform your space with a personalised touch.

Slatted Wall Panelling

The beauty of slatted wall panelling lies in its versatility. It's not confined to a single role, instead it can play multiple parts in elevating your home. Use it as a stylish backdrop for your living room, a subtle half wall, or a head-turning headboard in the bedroom. The adaptability of slatted wall panelling ensures that it can meet the diverse needs of different rooms within your home. Additionally, slatted wall panelling can be used to define and zone different areas within an open-concept living space, adding structure and character to the overall design. Incorporating slated wall panelling to a room breathes new life into dull and uninspiring walls, turning them into conversation pieces.

The Colour Palette

Now, let’s delve into a carefully curated colour palette brought to you by colour expert Katie Walker. This palette seamlessly intertwines with slatted wall panelling. This thoughtfully crafted palette draws inspiration from nature, featuring earthy pops of green, soothing neutrals and energetic bursts of burnt orange. Silk Seal and Gris Verte introduce earthy greens, evoking a calming and rejuvenating atmosphere inspired by nature.

Completing these greens are Covert Feather and Ivory Tusk, soft neutral tones that add understated elegance and versatility. These hues create a soothing backdrop, fostering a sense of balance and harmony with the overall composition. To infuse vibrancy into the palette, Brickstock takes centre stage. This bold and energetic hue introduces a playful warmth serving as an accent colour that injects life and character into the scheme while maintaining a grounded connection to the earthy tones.

This curated Colour palette not only enhances the overall earthy and rustic feel of the slatted wall panelling but also marries seamlessly with its rugged texture. The interplay between the natural, uneven surfaces of the slate and the carefully chosen hues creates a dynamic, visual experience, transforming a space into a sanctuary of style and sophistication. The marriage of earthy tones with the raw elegance of slated panelling elevates the ambiance, offering a unique blend of natural charm and contemporary elegance.
