Accent walls are an easy way to add character and charm to any room. From colorful barn wood to striking wallpaper to a bold teal accent wall, here are our favorite accent wall colors for your home.
Pink walls are great, but what if you don’t want a room painted entirely in pink? Pick a wall to be painted pink and the rest of the space be soothingly neutral. It’s a great way to have a strong color without overbalancing the space. Try Cameo Peach for this look in your home.
Aqua green is a great choice for an accent wall. If you use it in a foyer or entryway, your door can be used as a wooden accent to create a complete palette. Thoughtful details like that are what take a space from amateur to pro.
This breakfast nook is really just a little corner in an open floor plan. But by adding a bold, rich gold makes it an inviting space. It’s a fast and affordable project, and a clever way to define the space.
Speaking of bold colors, let’s talk about teal accent walls. This small kitchen can be a decor challenge. You need to make sure it feels open and airy. Riviera Paradise is a dark, pure, tropical turquoise aqua with an aquamarine undertone. It is a perfect paint color for a dining room or bedroom, because of its ocean-like ambiance.
We absolutely love this jade aqua-green with a malachite undertone. Paired with white trim and off white accents, this color embodies everything we love about the spa: quiet, calm, and comfort.
Normally, you’d think of white walls and a black accent. But why not reverse it? Go for over-the-top dramatic with a blue-toned black like Midnight Hour and then make your accent wall white. Talk about stunning!
Bring home a taste of vacation with a painted mural or nature-inspired wallpaper accent wall. Wallpaper designs are exciting and add an extra flair of personality to any room.
If you have a flair for drama add some cool geometric designs. Polka dots add pops of color are all the rage and look especially youthful when used in a children’s bedroom or play area.
If you really want to go the extra mile, why stop at one color on an accent wall? Go for two colors or three? Painted in a fun geometric pattern, this wall will be a sure conversation starter in your living room.
How cool is this floral wallpaper? We love how it takes something natural and turns it into something magical yet not over-the-top.
Here’s another idea of how to work an open floor plan. Make the most of a narrow wall by setting it off with a super-sophisticated wallpaper (or, more affordable, hand-painted stencils).
