The Best Accent Wall Ideas for Your Home
A lot of times, people want to change up their space without going all-out. A pop of color is perfect for the occasion. And, using the right mediums and eye for color, you can open up spaces and completely transform your home.
The best accent wall ideas come from you! That’s right. Since it’s not a full commitment, you can really kind of usually go with your favorite color! Or, a color that you love, but would possibly look hideous should the entire room be painted that color. Let’s dive in to some of our favorite examples of the best accent wall ideas.
The Royal Blue Treatment
There is a whole lot of yes happening in this color choice combination. The decor itself reminds us of Bombay, India or somewhere tropical with a never-ending orange sunset.
The rug design with it’s yellow hues compliments the royal blue accent wall behind the master bed here. Yellow and blue, being at opposite ends of the color wheel, are a great color combination to try in a pop-of-color, accent wall situation.
Further, the designers chose to leave the remaining walls white. Try to picture how it had looked perhaps previously with all four walls painted white. Visions of hospitals and other sterile locations surely come to mind.
With the added accent wall in royal blue here, the room is completely tied together, yet also expanded, and somehow grounded as well, tying the airy white with a solid choice.
We’re into this one. Bravo!
Baby’s First Accent Wall
Next, up, this creative design for a nursery. How sweet to bring art into a newborn’s life already (awesome!).
This design takes skill. Definitely hire a professional and then check out Pinterest to your heart’s galore. Using paint as art in a baby’s room is a way to get creative while also growing with your child.
Want something new a few years later? Just paint over it. Voila! And, why not have a whole lot of fun one day and get some family hand prints on the walls or even paw prints!
Playing with paint and color is part of the fun of making your space fun and letting it grow with you. Bring back the childlike fun in your life by painting your baby’s first room with a creative accent wall.
Grape-y Accent Wall in Living Room
Obviously we’re ape over these grape walls of this contemporary living room. Completely unexpected, yet the plum really reveals the personality of the room. With black and white decor, the color is striking, not overwhelming. It is whimsical and fun, yet its deepness invokes classic times and revelry. We also like the large mirror, adding an element of “texture”to the bright walls and space by reflection. Lovely accent wall here.
Bright Zen Office Space
And now, this. We may be “color junkies” but this office space in the Netherlands is just so relaxing, it makes us want to work there all day. The bright orange accent wall reminds us of everything awakening: citrus-y oranges, a bright sunrise, the sun shining, warmth. And, the graphics and gradients make this corporate accent wall intriguing.
