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.
