      Tall spaces and staircases. In very high spaces, especially stairwells, a half wall helps ground the area without filling it floor to ceiling with an overwhelming amount of color. This dark wall follows the lines of the staircase, defining the area while still allowing the high ceiling to seem far away.Notice how the lower edge of the gray diagonal area aligns to an element of the window (the bottom of the middle panes) for a little extra architectural crispness.

      Do emphasize interesting architecture with a half-painted wall. Have a high-ceilinged room, double-height stairway or other interesting architectural feature you would like to emphasize? Follow the lines with a half-painted wall to draw the eye toward the special feature.

      3. Make a dip-painted wall sculpture. Yes, the piece shown here was created by an artist — but that doesn’t mean you can’t craft your own spin on it. Try dip-paining an old farm implement or wood-handled cooking tools in brightly colored paint to give them a modern twist, then hang them on the wall.Commission a new piece by a local artist

      Design lines to reflect architectural elements. When setting out your look, use wall patterns that complement lines already in the space. The parallel paint line follows the angle of the staircase and reinforces the interior's geometric theme.

      Not quite a spiral, but could still fit in a small footprint
