Painting with Nippon Paint

note: home lovers will love this

Weeks ago I attended the Nippon Paint workshop in KL convention centre where the Home Décor 2009 was held.

All the things you need in a house

Together with a bunch of bloggers, we sat through a talk course about how to paint your house with colors, etc.

It was an interesting talk by both charming presenters Ms Gladys Goh and Ms Wong Meng Lee about colors and what do they signify or represent.

It also taught us how to pick and mix-match the colors when deciding to paint a room/item/house.

Never knew painting a house could require so much knowledge, and I honestly though decorating and furnishing the house was the difficult part.

Here are a few fun color facts for those home lovers out there. Or for those who likes colors and love furnishings.


I like blue. Just don’t really like it in a room. It’s kinda.. moody for me.

And I realized how nice green is when painted on a wall. I always thought it would be really dodgy and odd. You know, one of those peculiar colors.


I like this yellow + green settings below too.

O definitely love this design

Reminds me of those cozy guesthouses in Europe. ^^

Then there’s a sexy red.


Which this design here makes it really classy and expensive.

Speaking of expensive, purple is definitely my favorite expensive-looking color.

They always looks so elegant regardless

I stayed in this resort hotel in Thailand once and it’s all purple and white. I LOVED that hotel so much.

This following design reminds me of Nuffnang office Malaysia.

No wonder their whole office is orange in color

Though I wouldn’t mind it in a house if the furnishings can be as nice as this next photo.

The one of the left, not right. Not too orange-y please.

Then there’s the typical pink.


I like pink. A lot. Though I don’t really show it.

Maybe because it doesn’t really suit me, who knows. But I love the color to bits! All my ipods are in pink.

Though somehow my current room color is a bit purple-ish. (purple used to be my childhood favourite, now it has become white, well, and pink)

But I have to say, when it comes to a furnishing a house. My ultimate favourite is still BROWN… and WHITE.


Not just any brown.
Light brown.

I mean, I like the woody Balinese style feel that most darker shade of brown can bring out, but I always think that Balinese/woody style should belong to a home-stay/resort holiday rather than an everyday color.

Like I said, I like lighter brighter colors. Not dark and moody.

Perfect example would be this super marble light brown design here.

OMG swoon! So Medieval Age feel!!

As for white: elegance, simplicity, clean, what’s not to like?


Or maybe I just can’t imagine my future Jacuzzi bathtub to be any other color. It would just be soooo wrong~

Come on. A pink bathtub?! /:S

The fun part began when each of us was given a canvas to create our own design, after a very brief talk on the types of design Nippon Paint can create.

I chose a lime green canvas, I thought it looked cool. As in really nice relaxing cool.

So with some creativity, we were off.

I started vigorously taping my masking tape away onto my canvas, in hope to create a base for up-coming design.

Then I took a white Nippon Paint white, my favorite color, from the table filled with assortments of paints.

And a brush.

And painted away I did.

And paint.

And posed for camera.

While I was working hard on my artwork, the rest were busy creating masterpieces of their own.

There was Red Mummy pouring out her creative juice. Or rather, the husband’s.

She was busy taking photos. Lol

Cindy was pasting blue tulips.

Ringo was cutting cheese blocks.

KY was obviously doing up a wall for a girly room.

And.. and… bah. Let the photos do the talking here.

Obviously a lot of people liked the square-masking-tape design

And many others

(Sorry if your artwork is not here, I didn’t manage to take all with my camera)

And finally, my MASTER PIECE!!

Tell me you like it.

my masterpiece
Did you see the kisses on the bottom right area? Hehe. That’s my lipstick prints.

What do you think?

Tell me the truth. No I’m kidding.
Be nice. I can’t handle harsh criticism.

Someone said it looked like Adidas. T_T


20 kissed Nicole

  1. hahaha nice! btw, have you been to manila or palawan? im going there in jan and if you have been there do you mind sharing some places to go? thanks :)

  4. Your design is simple and clean, but not my choice.

  5. You didn't learn music, did you? Your clef is wrong and the tails of your notes r wrong too.

  7. It's nice! Your so creative.

  8. i like it! different from the rest. :)

  9. Hey,

    I loved your design! It looks really nice, great job!

    But i guess if i were to use it on my wall, i would probably prefer to have it without the kiss prints :)

  10. Guess it's not too over to say that non of the paintings above shows any pure talents or attraction, let alone creativity. EXCEPT YOURS! NICOLE, you are CERTAINLY a RIGHT-BRAINED genius Congrats!!!

  11. Yeah, yours is definitely one of the creative ones! Maybe not exactly suitable for home walls, but would be great for a music classroom ^_^ (maybe without the kiss prints :P But hey, that could be a signature!)

  12. your art is pretty. but clef position and your notes are wrong.

  13. its fugly, but OK for 12 yo standards
