Accentuate Your Life
Turning your living space into a true reflection of your identity requires nothing less than exceptional taste and a keen sense of self. It also requires a sharp eye for detail and colour. Even with all those things in your back pocket finding the right interior design twist that turns your habitat into a sanctuary can be a challenge. Well, lucky for you we’ve got the perfect solution for your interior design woes. Accent walls can be the thing that turns your living space from boring into soaring. While it’s entirely likely you have already heard of (and probably considered) accent walls, did you know there are loads of options beyond simply applying a fresh coat of paint? Well, there are! Let us show you some examples of how you can make any room come to life.
Paint like a Saint
While there are plenty of options to dress a wall beside adding a splash of colour, there’s a lot to be said for this old standard. Whatever tone or shade you decide to go with, important things to consider are the decor to go on the accent wall, the colour of the adjacent flooring, and the decoration that will occupy the room. Although hiring a professional to do the painting is certainly a good option, painting a wall is something that is relatively simple to do on your own. Choosing to paint your accent wall is a fun DIY activity, and is certain to fill you with a great sense of accomplishment.
The Great Wallpaper Caper
When deciding to add an accent wall to a room most people don’t even know this is an option! Whether it’s a kitchen, bedroom, or a bathroom adding a wallpaper accent wall not only adds colour but also the added feature of textures! You can add a pattern of vibrantly coloured flowers to a girl’s room with raised edges, treating your eyes to a pop of intrigue. Or you could add a dark grey accent wall to a bedroom that has a rough and raised texture, adding depth and complexity to your sleeping quarters. When it comes to wallpaper accent walls the home decor possibilities are nearly endless.
Chalk it Up to Smart Thinking
If you’re a parent, then chances are you’ve uttered the following statement to your child: “No drawing on the walls!” However, with this next accent wall, you’ll be telling them exactly the opposite. Installing a chalkboard accent wall might seem like a DIY project that’s a bit above your pay grade, but if you have a drill and are even moderately adept at hanging shelves you’ll be just fine. Install this accent wall in the kitchen so that you can list items for the next grocery run, or in your child’s bedroom to encourage their artistic side. Wherever you decide to place it, this fun and functional addition to your home design is sure to raise more than a few eyebrows.
Not Just Another Brick in the Wall
All-in-all this is another nifty idea! Also, it doesn’t require any full-scale renovations since a simple facade will do. This type of accent wall is great for anyone who likes the 90’s style loft look. Although whatever your personal style, this brick accent wall is a clever twist on an already fun concept. Furthermore, if you’re looking for any fun DIY home projects, putting up a brick facade is not very difficult. Stone accent walls like this are great choices for a living room or any other kind of shared space.
