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.

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.

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.

How cool is this floral wallpaper? We love how it takes something natural and turns it into something magical yet not over-the-top.
