Accent Walls Series #3

Monday, December 7th, 2015

We’re in the third and final part of our #Accent­WallSeries now so we’re going to take a look at more ways to exe­cute this design tech­nique! We’ve talked about adding wall­pa­per and installing reclaimed wood or trim, but now we’re going to adven­ture into more uncon­ven­tion­al ideas.


Need more stor­age space in your home? What bet­ter way to add stor­age then to make it into a state­ment piece. Accent­ing a wall with built in book­cas­es is a great way to give your space depth and per­cep­tion. Paint­ing them the same col­or as your walls will help blend them in so they’re not too over­whelm­ing. BONUS — they pro­vide the per­fect excuse to go shop­ping for nic-nacs!


Stone or tile can also be a great way to accent a wall, espe­cial­ly in a kitchen or bath­room where these mate­ri­als will stand up against wear and tear. Try extend­ing your kitchen tile back­splash up to the ceil­ing or tiling behind the toi­let or van­i­ty in the bath­room. This will help add col­or, tex­ture and vari­ety to the space where just plain paint might not be enough.


Tex­tiles are anoth­er fab­u­lous way to get into the groove of accent walls. They are sim­ple and easy to place, and pro­vide detail to spaces that lack it. You can hang a tapes­try on any wall and switch it out depend­ing on your mood. Tex­tiles are great for sea­son­al decor — so hang a flo­ral print in the spring and a more rus­tic print in the fall to help spice up your room!

There are many oth­er ways to incor­po­rate accent walls into your space, not just the exam­ples list­ed in our series. You can use ceil­ing tiles com­bined togeth­er to form an accent wall, leather or oth­er fab­rics, large art pieces or even nat­ur­al look­ing ele­ments such as fake flow­ers. Let your cre­ativ­i­ty flow!

Whether you are look­ing for a more per­ma­nent design or a sea­son­al switch up, accent walls are a great way to go. Do your research and inves­ti­gate the dif­fer­ent types that suit your lifestyle and home decor. Don’t be afraid to roll up your sleeves and try some­thing new. An accent wall could be just what your space needs!


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!
