7 Tips for Creating a Wall Accent

The accent walls are a topic of conversation in any living space and give the room a new dimension. Here are seven simple tips to paint a wall accent in a flash.

1. A bold color, but not too much

Heavily decorated walls are not for fragile hearts. Do you fear a color too intense?

  • Try to choose a similar shade (but more discreet) with a hint of gray, or opt for a slightly darker shade in your color palette.

2. Imagine and see

Are you afraid to start? No problem!

  • If you are unsure of the success of your first wall, start with a “shake test” that will allow you to narrow your choice to three or four shades, and then do a medium-sized test to check the results.
  • After spending a few days on colors, you will eventually find the one that best suits the space you want to decorate for Wall Accent.

3. Location, location, location

Not certain to know the good wall to highlight? Think of the wall you want to highlight as if it were a big board to hang.

  • What is the central Wall Accent of your space that would best display your artistic talents?
  • Do you want to hang your masterpiece over the hearth of the fireplace? On a large white wall above the sofa?
  • It could be in both cases the ideal place for the wall you are looking to accentuate.

4. Small details matter

Unlike the previous board, you can also focus on a wall that would otherwise be ignored.

  • A small wall absorbed by a door? Increase its contrast rather than make it invisible.
  • More subtle, it can create a “warm” space in an otherwise under-estimated space.

5. Everything is about details

Choose a color for your Wall Accent by thinking about the details.

  • If a room is mainly dominated by blue tones, a blue painted accent wall may overlap too much in the room, thus negating the impression of space you want to give it.
  • Pay particular attention to the colors and hues of the highlighted objects. You notice a shade of gray-tin in the blue? Here is your accent color.

6. Do it yourself

To add a graphic element to your space while having the impression to enlarge it, here is a tip:

  • Rather than painting the entire wall, set a large proportioned rectangle with duct tape.
  • The extra white space will add a “new dimension”, also giving an illusion of depth.

7. Stay away from the wall

An original way to create a personal space? Consider painting a ceiling like no other.

  • A deep and dramatic color that would normally darken a room can be the hue you are looking for your ceiling, especially in homes adorned with intricate moldings.
