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)
