Given how well trafficked your living room is going to be, it’s often not the best place to take stylistic risks. However, because it is so heavily trafficked, it’s definitely the space where you want to make a bold statement. You want those who enter your home and living room to see your sense of style on display.
If you’re not taking huge risks in terms of décor and color, though, this can be difficult. However, there’s an easy and simple way to add some much-needed spark to a potentially tired living room design, and that’s the accent wall. As you’re going to see in the examples that follow, accent walls can help you to both make a statement and offer yourself a design opportunity. On their own, accent walls can add a real sense of depth and dimension to a living space. When combined with other design elements, though, they can allow you to really expand your design palate and tie together disparate elements.
