I’ve always wanted to try out Nippon Momento Special Effects Paint to give my walls a richer colour and elegant finishing. During our renovation a year ago, we seriously considered Nippon Momento but unfortunately, the painters from our Interior Design company were not trained in it. Thus, our ID recommended us to use wallpapers instead.
V and I were concerned about the durability of wallpapers, therefore we didn’t pursue that option. I do not know why at that time I didn’t try to source for another painter. And so, I regretted big time after that. =(
Earlier this year, V and I discussed about Nippon Momento again. After visiting a friend’s new home that is beautifully painted with Nippon Momento Special Effects Paint, I was SO tempted to try it. Initially, V was a little reluctant because of the hassles – especially since we’ve moved in and all our built-in furniture are in place.
I assured him that the professional painters from Nippon Paint will protect our furniture and the painting process is rather quick as we will only be doing it on the feature walls (not the entire house!). Alas, he agreed and I quickly fixed the appointment with Nippon.
We met with the paint specialist from Prestige Painting to discuss about our home makeover using Nippon Momento Special Effects Paint. We were SO impressed with their past works. Talking to Jen, the paint specialist at Prestige Painting, is just like talking to my trusty hairstylist – someone whom I can connect and entrust.
First, she assessed the colours and design of my home. Then, we discussed about the results that I want to achieve. Jen is an experienced and skillful paint specialist – we can easily tell judging from her past works. She’s also someone who takes pride in her works. Therefore, we’re confident to work with her.
As an introduction, Nippon Momento Special Effects Paint has 3 different collections:
1. Textured Paint Series
This is the first range of Nippon Momento that is available in 174 colours across four contemporary variants – Elegant, Sparkle Silver, Sparkle Gold and Sparkle Pearl. It creates specially textured walls using four unique special effects.

A special line of semi-transparent Nippon Momento Special Effects Paint that can be applied onto any wall, glazed over any existing wall colour. Available in Cloud and Frost effects across five variants – Cloud Gold, Cloud Pearl, Snow Frost, Pearl Frost and Gold Frost.

3. Designer Series
The latest and most sophisticated line of professional special effects paint that masterfully mimics the extraordinary beauty of real-life textures, featuring six distinctive special effects. Available in three variants – Optical, Rust Box and Travertino.
[We created a beautiful brick wall in our living room using Travertino – will share more about it in our next posts]
For our Master Bedroom, we’ve decided to use the Textured Paint Series Sparkle Gold (item #1 above). Sparkle Gold is a textured semi-metallic finish with majestic colour dusted in a golden shine. I loved how it creates a lavish ambience for my room!
The colour that we’ve selected is Champagne MG 158, and the effect we wanted is soft and criss-cross.
