What hat is your accent wall wearing?
We mostly think of accent walls as a wall in a room painted in a striking color to set a visual tone for the room. Besides setting a visual tone (think of a mood setting), accent walls can also have many other functions.
Accent wall that accentuates featured objects in the room
If you want your decorative items of a specific color (for example a blue rug, set of blue lamps and blue vase) have a greater visibility (to visually pop) in the room, the accent wall of the same color (blue) will do just that – accentuate your favorite decorative pieces.
Accent wall that plays a balancing act
To balance a room that has a predominant color tone (for example the shades of brown, beige and gray) you can use an accent wall in a striking color (yellow, green, blue, red) to offset the color tone that’s taking the most visual space in the room. For a more dynamic effect, orange is complimentary to blue and creates high contrast visually.
Accent wall that delineates one area of the room from the rest
Open space layouts (like a living area, dining area and kitchen sharing one big space) can be helped with a use of accent wall to differentiate one area (like a living area) from the rest.
Accent wall as a focal or exhibit wall
An accent wall as a focal or exhibit wall is a perfect way to feature your favorite memories, art, photographs and collections to remind you of what you appreciate, love and are proud in your life.
