Looking to upgrade your décor and transform the aesthetics of your room in just one day? An accent wall could be just what you’re looking for. Accent walls allow you to experiment with colours, patterns or textures on one single wall, leaving the rest of the room as it is. A very popular trend in the nineties, accent walls are coming back into the limelight as a hot and happening home décor trend.
A revival of the vibrant wall colours of the retro 20s, combined with the accent wall idea, allows today’s discerning homeowners to tie in unusual and vibrant colours such as black, metallic shades, teal and fuchsia, on the accent wall, and highlight them against neutral backdrops of white, beige or grey. Rather than letting these vibrant shades dominate the entire interior, by using them on just one focal wall the palette is toned down and does not overwhelm. The trend is to spotlight the statement wall in a bold colour and let it take centre stage, while the other three walls are mostly neutral.
We’ve put together some of the ways in which you can use accent walls to upgrade your room décor.
Yin and Yang: Black and White
By painting one wall jet-black, and keeping the other surfaces white, you can create a dramatic contrast that goes well with any contemporary theme.
Zigs and Zags
Bold chevron stripes, or any playfully patterned wallpaper can make your accent wall stand apart.
Pops of Colour
Even if you don’t like too much colour, just subtle pops of impactful shades like burgundy, violet or tangerine will elevate the décor of your room to a whole new level. You can pick out the main colour in the artwork, cushions or rugs in the room to bring the whole look together.
Create layers of interest
Just by painting one wall a different colour, you can create layers of depth and focal interest. Use variants of the same shade in design elements around the room, and create a cohesive look.
Paint the Ceiling too!
Most designers ignore the room’s fifth wall—the ceiling! By choosing to paint the ceiling in a bold, strong colour, you can make a stunning visual unlike any other.
