Just wondering if anyone has any great ideas about feature walls for my house. We live in a fairly narrow townhouse and I am wondering which walls to have stand out for the look of enlarging the rooms. Do I paint an end wall or a side wall darker? What's the general rule of thumb?

Hey -could you post a photo? It would be much easier to give advice if I could see the room Very Happy
Some tips on feature walls:
Typically a feature wall is used to highlight an important area and make a focal point in your home eg. in the living room around your fireplace. Feature walls can also be used to inject colour into a neutral space or help define an area in open plan space. A dark colour will make the feature wall appear closer and a lighter shade will make the wall appear further away. In a long room, if you paint the far wall a dark colour it will draw that wall closer and make the room feel more 'square'
