How To Paint An Accent Wall
Beautiful accent walls can complete a room’s look and can elevate the room’s designer style with layers of coordinated colors. The best part? You don’t need to spend all day painting to create a dramatic change in your room’s look and feel. Painting an accent wall in your room is a small project that makes a big impact.
Dramatic By DesignCreate drama and depth in your home by using a warm, bold color on one wall. Use unexpected color on an accent wall to change the feel of the space without completely redoing your room.
Take Lucky Penny, a hearty and rustic burnt orange, for example. It can change the energy of a space instantly due to its rich, warm and nurturing color.
Masterfully Mix & MatchMix variations of blue in one room to add depth and richness, while balancing the space. Choosing shades that are from the same color family is an easy way to bring a layered, soothing look to your space.
Create drama in your living room by using a deep blue paint color like Blueberry Pie as an accent to a softer blue hue like Twinkle Blue, for a complete look.
Sophisticated SoftnessBig color does not necessarily mean overpowering or bright color. To achieve a calming but bold feel, choose a muted color within a bold color family.
Pair soft shades of bold colors, such as Briar Rose pink, with neutral grays or sand hues for balance and beauty in your home.
A Little Goes A Long WayIf you choose the right accent colors, you won't need to use much of them to create a powerful effect. Find accents that really contrast and compliment your main shades, so those small pops of color create an element of fun.
Use bright or bold paint colors to highlight fireplaces, trim, ceilings, or the back of book shelves. Adding those small accents will quickly turn a neutral color palette into an exciting collection of shades.
