For those who love to decorate and are always excited to test out the latest trends in design, the accent wall is a concept that's become popular in recent years. If you're not sure how to use this feature to twist any room on its side, here's how to go about painting your very own and instantly dressing up the look of your favorite room.

Pick the Perfect Wall    

When deciding on the ideal location for an accent wall, it's important to consider which space in your home will benefit from a splash of color and still be complimented by this unique look. Whether you decide on a wall in your bedroom or living room, the location of your accent wall should be somewhere it can have a positive impact on the look of your room without overpowering its natural ambiance.

Decide on a Color You Can Live With        

Once you've picked the perfect place for your paint, you'll want to narrow down the list of color options to ones that will work best for the wall. It can be tempting to go from the most brilliant of colors to really indulge in accent, but think of this wall to merely boost the look of a room you already enjoy. By choosing a color that is both vibrant and understated – and goes with your design aesthetic – you can use this wall to maximum, nuanced effect.

Any Additional Accents?     

If you're just wading into the water with home decorating, it's entirely likely that an accent wall will be enough for now, but if you're just beginning you may want to consider some other interesting design details as well. While you could choose more than one color to brighten things up or draw a makeshift frame around the border of each wall, if you're interested in something funky you may want to use some stencils - like hearts or stars - to instantly add a whimsical effect!

There are no hard and fast rules when it comes to home decorating, but if you've been considering an accent wall for a while you might want to test it out first before diving in with neon colors and funky stencils.

I think you show a very tasteful and understated way to add accent. However I have seen it go to tragically bad when it is over the top.
