Guest post by Design Shuffle - Fun Walls!

Happy 2012 everyone!! To start this new year Design Shuffle is sharing with us Stylish and Fun Walls and Colour trends that you will be seeing this year! Oh lala . . .

"Hi, I’m Joanna, a guest blogger with Design Shuffle, and online showcase of interior designers work from around the globe. I love all things design and fortunately, I spend my days searching the web for the most creative and beautiful rooms. Thanks for letting me share some of my finds with you today. Bold colors and big patterns are not for the faint of heart. To decorate and live with these design elements takes a fearless attitude. We love how a classic home can be transformed by simply using brilliant hues and patterns on the walls. Take a look at some of our favorite interior designs with stylish walls.

Stylish Walls

This chartreuse wall is framed in black with a soft blue background. The black makes a strong statement in a contemporary bedroom.

Stylish Walls

A country kitchen gets a splash of tangerine above the board and batten wall. This vivid shade of orange is trending hot right now.

Stylish Walls

A traditional style living room goes contemporary with brilliant blue walls. The touches of blue on chairs and tables anchor the color on neutral furnishings.

Stylish Walls

A soft silver metallic wallpaper gives this simplistic interior design a sophisticated feel. The modern lamp in silver and chrome carries silver off the walls and into the room.

Stylish Walls

Fun and feminine wallpaper dresses up this bathroom for a fresh and cheeky look. The white sink and dresser add just enough contrast against the busy pattern.

Stylish Walls

Another chic bathroom takes the pattern into the shower and out into the bathroom. Does this room inspire any interior design ideas of your own?

Stylish Walls

A peacock blue sofa takes center stage against chartreuse, black and mint green walls and doors. White trim at the doors make the other hues pop. This room is filled with decorating ideas.

Stylish Walls

Lots of bright color, whimsical pattern and brilliantly hued furnishings give this room an adrenaline shot.Images 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8
