Does your bedroom look a little lackluster? Do you need something to add interest to your living room but you’re not sure what’s missing? Try an accent wall!Accent walls are an easy way to add color or texture to a space. You can choose anything from a bright paint color or elegant wallpaper, or get creative with pallets or the super-popular shiplap. Big box hardware stores like Lowes or Home Depot offer a large selection of wood accents for decent prices. Because it’s just one wall, you won’t need to spend as much as if you were covering the whole room.

PAINT COLORS
 

When it comes to paint, you can evoke any style or feel – go bright and vibrant, or moody and earthy. You could also consider using masking tape to make any number of cool designs. Whatever you choose, draw inspiration from the art and furniture in the room.

Top trends:

•          Bright blues

•          Deep greens

•          Dark grays

WALLPAPER
 

Wallpaper isn’t just for grandmas anymore. With so many brands, styles, and textures, you can really jazz up your space. With wallpaper, the sky is the limit, so feel bold and experiment with patterns.

Top trends:

•          Metallics: bold, unexpected, chic

•          Geometric patterns: sleek, modern, artsy

•          Soft florals: soft, warm, delicate

WOOD ACCENTS
 

Wood accents are a perfect match for a space with a warm, earthy feel. You can use old pallets, new wood planks, or the total “it” trend, shiplap (thanks, Joanna Gaines). Pallets give a more rustic feel with their wide variation in color and texture. Shiplap is the way to go for a polished look. And barnwood is an option full of warmth for accents, like a fireplace mantel or makeshift beams.

Top trends:

•          Pallets: rustic, hodgepodge vibe

•          Shiplap: streamlined, refined

•          Barnwood: bold, cozy, intricate
