The art of the frieze

A frieze gives the room an elegant note. It also makes it possible to mark a separation between two parts of a wall or to camouflage the junction between two tapestry motifs.

  • In general, friezes can be glued to a tapestry, except for embossed wallpapers, on which the glue will not adhere in a sufficiently regular manner.
  • The friezes are easier to lay along a horizontal line drawn on the wall.
  • Cut the necessary length (with an additional ten centimeters as a precaution) and stick to the instructions on the packaging.
  • Position the frieze, then press it with a roller to be upholstered. Start with a corner of the room.
  • In the corners, press the frieze with the edge of a ruler. Tear what passes along the ruler, then cut cleanly with a knife or scissors.
  • If the glue protrudes from the bottom edge, wipe it off immediately (it should not dry!).
  • Never try to stick a frieze on a freshly laid wallpaper. The wall must be completely dry.
  • It is preferable that the color of the wall be darker below the frieze than above.

Paint a frieze

  1. Deline the frieze strip with crepe tape;
  2. Paint the strip in a shade matching the room’s decoration - it will be its background color;
  3. Cut a strip of plastic the width of the wall band;
  4. In this band, cut out patterns: geometric shapes, clouds or small animals for a child’s room, etc.;
  5. Glue the plastic strip to the wall strip, when it is dry, and paint the patterns in another color, dabbing.

Color scheme

  • Light colors: Like light blue and green tones, yellow and orange, create a sense of space. Light, cheerful and user-friendly, they promote communication and are therefore ideal for the dining room, the living room or the kitchen.
  • Dark colors: Like red, purple, shades of dark blue and green, on the other hand, may seem sad, and even a little oppressive. However, when they are in the right place or they bring out certain elements, they help create a cozy and cozy atmosphere.
  • The warm colors: All the shades of red or ocher, for example, generate a sensation of warmth attested by the researchers - whatever the ambient temperature. In the rooms facing north, they compensate for the lack of sunlight. However, these very stimulating colors are to be avoided in the areas reserved for relaxation.
  • Pastels: To contribute to the well-being and calm of the little ones, pastel shades are always in the spotlight in children’s rooms.
  • Cold colors: Like blue and green, have a soothing effect that targets them in particular to bedrooms, allowing to fall asleep relaxed and wake up fresh and ready.
  • King Blue: Inhibits communication. It is therefore to be avoided in rooms like the living room or the dining room.
  • Red: Stimulates energy, but it can also generate irritability and hostility, and is therefore not indicated for a child’s room. Use it locally rather than as a dominant color.
  • Avoid gray: For the kitchen and the dining room, as it would tend to cut the appetite.

It is also important to place a frieze or choose the colors to ensure that the set will fit well with your existing furniture or decorative elements. Do not hesitate to seek the advice of a professional, if any.
