Interior Inspiration: Accent Walls

via

I like accent walls.  A lot of impact for not a lot of commitment.  Typically accent walls are done either with a wallpaper, or one solid contrasting paint color, or a painted or stenciled pattern, or even a different material, e.g. a reclaimed wood wall, or using decals.

I especially like accent walls when they can easily be accomplished with paint, i.e. an inexpensive way to spice up a room.  My current favorite is the triangle pattern pictured above.  Technically, the picture above is a removable adhesive wall pattern, but it looks to me like a pattern easily replicated with paint.  I’m thinking I might do something similar in Monkey’s bedroom.  His bedroom is quite small, so I want to give it a little life.

But I also think Big Boy’s bedroom also needs walls with a special treatment.  Below are some current contenders.

When the chevron pattern first came out I really liked it.  But now that I’ve seen it everywhere, from accent walls, to crib sheets, to iPhone cases, and everything in between, I think the chevron thing has gone a little too far.  So, I’m not planning on going that route for the accent wall, but in case you are interested here‘s a how to.  Don’t get me wrong, I still like chevron, but used sparingly.
