Why Accent Walls Are Here to Stay
I especially like placing accent walls in bedrooms on the headboard wall because they really help to anchor the bed in the room. In a pinch, if space is too tight for a headboard, the paint can stand in as a two-dimensional version of one.
My take on it in terms of home decor is that if you attempt to add an attention-grabbing element to every nook and cranny in a room, you risk having nothing stand out because everything is standing out.
A well-placed accent wall helps coax the eye to a focal point in the space. Here, we see how you can use even the deepest and darkest of hues while keeping the room’s vibe light and inviting.
Designing and decorating your home should be fun. If you love an all-white room or floor-to-ceiling beige, go for it. If you want a splash of a less-expected color, such as lime green, then by all means give yourself a healthy dose of it. And by adding it as an accent wall, you’ve got an easy, affordable, flexible design element that reflects your unique personality.
