There’s no better way to create breathtaking design in your home than with stunning accent walls. They allow you to highlight architectural characteristics, express your personality and set the tone of your home. Often used to balance the space between eye-catching and neutral, adding stunning accent walls into your favorite rooms is a great design move. Colors can enter by painting, texturing or wallpapering one wall. Typically, you’ll choose the wall that creates a focal point, with possible angles and arches to add interest to the overall look. Sometimes, homes features the same wall in each room to accent, giving the home a unique flow. Take a look at some of our favorite stunning accent walls, and let us know which ones you love!
Make a Modern Statement.
Perfect for open floor plans, stunning accent walls work to add dramatic style while making everything come together. This home features gorgeous finishings in soft colors and delicate features. The textured orange takes it up a notch–inviting color and creating contemporary appeal.
Let Characteristics Stand Out.
Homes that feature unique characteristics of wainscoting and crown molding are the perfect setting for stunning accent walls. In this case, the accent happens all around the room in this charcoal gray. It’s a serious statement, both lightened and highlighted with the contrast of the bright white elements of the room.
Create Big Style with Small Walls.
If you have an ‘almost-open’ floor plan that incorporates dividers like this home featured, you’ve got all it takes to create stunning accent walls easily. You can go bold with big colors that bring just the right amount of color and design envy. This wall, covered in red wallpaper, boasts high-end style–bringing chic sophistication to the space.
Accent a Bold Backdrop.
If you’re wondering how to use deep shades, like this dark blue-gray, it’s all about the other design elements. Stunning accent walls create a statement-making backdrop for artwork, light fixtures and furniture in the same space. Adding rich luxury, the dark paint color feels friendly and light due to the small pops of color in both the artwork and chandeliers. The artistic scene posed with the dining chairs add to the design of the space.
Include Your Personal Style.
Cozy spaces make for the perfect sanctuary, and there’s no spot in your home better for this than the bedroom. This chalkboard paint adds a personal touch to stunning accent walls, both because of the depth of black color with charming affirmations and quotes. Dark accent walls lend themselves to other accents in the space of vibrant colors. The key to a successful use of darker colors is in the natural light that enters during the day. Windows can be integral in creating just the right balance of light and energy.
