Designers have embraced accent walls as a method of drawing attention to a specific portion of a room or space. An accent wall can be used to draw attention to an architectural feature in a room. Using a bold paint or wallpaper to extenuate a key feature like a fireplace or built-ins will always be in. If you are looking to add a pop of color to bring character into a room, simply pick the wall that stands out the most to you
Although accent walls can be big and bold, it’s also possible to make a modern statement in a subtle and understated way. The immense variety of options available includes not just traditional paint, but wallpaper, borders, decals, medallions and murals; any of which can be used to create the perfect feature wall. Choosing which area to highlight depends on what you hope to achieve.
Be careful to avoid obscuring your accent wall with a large object, such as ceiling-to-floor drapes, windows, or an enormous wardrobe. If the wall is covered, then you will lose its dramatic impact. Finally, make sure not to leave an accent wall too bare, or you’ll have too much of a “pop” and the room will feel unbalanced.
