INSIDE : What makes a great accent wall in your home? There are so many fun ways to create accent walls in your home : adding wallpaper or decals, using bold paint colors and even installing wood accent walls.
I was recently revisiting the process I took when updating my home office and the fun brushstroke painted pattern I added to the room. I get more comments and questions about that accent wall and it was such an easy one day DIY project.
I was so in love with having a wow-factor accent wall, that I then used a different technique but added a more neutral accent wall in our dining room using black decals. That space looks like I wallpapered the main wall, but it was a quick few hour DIY project – How to create the look of wallpaper, without using wallpaper.
This got me to thinking about all the creative and fun ways you can add a special moment to your home and I decided to roundup a few of my very favorite Top Accent Wall Ideas and Treatments from around the internet for you!

What is an Accent Wall?
An accent wall, also called a feature wall, is a wall whose design differs from the design of the other walls in the room. The accent wall’s color can simply be a different shade of the color of the other walls, or have a completely different design in terms of the color and material. (-Wikipedia credit)
