Design | The Accent Wall

If you’ve been paying close attention here on the site, maybe you’ve noticed a lot of talk about the accent wall. Too many people think that they have to paint all four walls of a room the same color, so I’m here to tell you differently.

Even something as simple as a patterned or striped wall is a great way to add some personality to any space in you home. You can try different textures of wallpaper, brighter paints, stencils, decals; whatever it is, you just make one wall in the room stand out. To show you what I mean I dug up some accent walls that I helped to create on Extreme. Take a look below:


A unique or colorful headboard is a great way to accent the bedroom, too…
