Accent Walls Series #2

Monday, November 23rd, 2015

In the first post of our #Accent­WallsSeries, we intro­duced the top­ic and dis­cussed how impor­tant this com­mon design fea­ture can be. Now we want to dive deep­er into the dif­fer­ent ways to accent your walls.

When accent walls were at their peak, paint was the num­ber one way to address the wall. You felt dar­ing if you used a col­or that was two shades dark­er. Now we are try­ing more than just adding paint!


Wall­pa­per has made a HUGE come back in the dec­o­rat­ing world. Unless you have ignored every dec­o­rat­ing mag­a­zine and TV show out there, you know this to be true. Most of my clients don’t want to invest the mon­ey into wall­pa­per­ing an entire room, so that’s where accent walls come in. Sin­gling out one wall is much more afford­able (and less time con­sum­ing!) than com­plet­ing an entire room. Plus it’s not near­ly as over­whelm­ing and can be very taste­ful so long as the right paper is picked out.


Wood pan­el­ing or trim can be anoth­er great way to define your style and add unique­ness to your space. From Vic­to­ri­an to mod­ern to rus­tic, this extreme­ly pop­u­lar trend is very ver­sa­tile and easy to install. Trim gives dimen­sion and inter­est to a space, and pan­el­ing pro­vides tex­ture and warmth. Also, for those of us who don’t have easy access to reclaimed barn wood or pal­lets, check out!

That’s all we have for today’s post! So don’t miss out on our next batch of ideas and ways to accent your walls when we con­tin­ue our #Accent­WallsSeries in a cou­ple weeks!

Accent walls, real­ly? I admit, I felt accent walls were overused in the mid 2000s but now I am enjoy­ing them again. Select­ing the best wall to accent is key! There are sev­er­al rea­sons to accent your walls.

First, it’s a quick and easy way to update any room. Who doesn’t like instant grat­i­fi­ca­tion? With one wall you can total­ly trans­form an entire space. You can also add accent walls to any room not just a bed­room or liv­ing room, but a kitchen, bath­room or entry way to boot!

Sec­ond, accent walls are bud­get friend­ly due to the fact that you are only address­ing one wall instead of an entire room. And don’t think you’re lim­it­ed to just paint col­or, accent walls can include many dif­fer­ent mate­ri­als, shapes and forms.


They also allow you to show­case key ele­ments of the space, such as archi­tec­tur­al inter­ests. Extend­ing the stone sur­round­ing your fire­place up to the ceil­ing will direct your eye and make a state­ment.

So be bold and don’t be afraid to cre­ate an amaz­ing accent wall! They can be easy to install, pro­vide stor­age space, bright­en up a room and can be added to any space. Look out for our next #Accent­WallsSeries post in the com­ing weeks to get a more in depth look at the dif­fer­ent types of accent walls that are trend­ing NOW!
