An accent wall can totally transform a room, taking it from boring and drab to bold and exciting. Accent walls create a new focal point for your space, add liveliness and contrast, and are typically a very inexpensive DIY project.
The starter accent wall
You can easily add an accent wall to your room in one afternoon by applying a new paint color. Deep blues and bright oranges are common choices for accent walls, but choose a color that will complement your existing decor and overall design aesthetic.
Bright, contrasting paint is a good starting point, but there are other options for accent walls that are even more eye-catching and distinct. Floor-to-ceiling wood planks can make your home seem both rustic and modern all at once and provide a natural, outdoors-inspired feel. It’s more work than simply painting a wall, but it’s still relatively inexpensive. You can source the wood from pallets on Craigslist and stain it yourself before attaching it to your wall. It takes a little extra elbow grease, but it’s worth the effort.
Patterns, murals, and more
Paint and wood are bold enough on their own to transform a room, but they’re still pretty subtle compared to other accent wall options. A chalk paint accent wall is a creative idea for any room and makes for some fun moments when you’re entertaining. There are also endless options for wallpaper and stenciling if you want some patterns or you can get really bold with a mural or oversized art print.

"I was referred to Christy by a mutual friend. My friend knew I needed a realtor and told me, “This girl will work.” My property had been for sale for approximately 6 years and I live in a different state. I originally had it “By Owner” but with my busy work schedule, that did not work out. I had it listed with another realtor for a couple of years and never got an offer. On one trip to the New Orleans area I decided to drive by my property. The “For Sale” sign was on the ground and the grass and weeds had overgrown it so badly, we had to rip it from the ground! I called the realtor and told her to come and put a new sign on the property that day. She was shocked I was there! I called Christy and we were able to complete all the necessary paperwork over the computer. She actually marketed my property! And it was a lot, not a residence, which makes it more difficult. Well, my friend was correct. Christy works! Christy sold my lot. She did the unimaginable. I’m going to be looking for more property in the New Orleans area and Christy has my business!"
