Pops of color are regularly used by fashionistas everywhere to help draw attention to a particular element of an outfit. A strategically used Pump, piece of jewelry, or a clutch are great accessories that add a new layer and depth to an outfit.
The same rule can be applied to your home. An accent wall can help enhance a focal point you want to highlight in room. Using fireplaces, large art work, and mirrors are easy ways to dress up any wall when paired with a beautiful coat of paint. Although I am a fan of the bright and bold, the color you choose does not have to fall within this category. The paint should fit the mood of the room. Here some accent walls that inspire me.
Instead of a color try a pattern.
