Accent Walls

Adding an accent wall to a room is an easy DIY project that anyone can accomplish. Accent walls can be painted or wallpapered, and whichever way it's done, it's sure to brighten up any space.

Here are a few tips for accomplishing a perfect accent wall:

1. An accent wall is normally the wall you first see when walking into a room. An accent wall should anchor and better define the space.

2. An accent wall looks best when it is a bold shade against more neutral-colored walls. Alternatively, a wall done in a wallpaper of the same shade adds interest and texture to the room.

3. Choose a paint or wallpaper that will support the colors already in the room. Even though it's an accent wall, the over-all look should still be cohesive.

4. Often times, the accent wall highlights a focal point in the room (like in the first image, it highlights the dining room table and artwork, the last image, the crib.) The focal point could also be a fireplace or TV

5. Add bits of the color of the accent wall subtly throughout the room, such as a piece of art or flowers.
