One of the more classic accent walls is when a pattern gets to dress one of the walls. This is your chance to go for something large, take this opportunity to express yourself without it taking over the whole room. Rosa and Anemone are two prime examples of wallpapers with large patterns that will create beautiful accent walls.

A tip is to be brave and match a large pattern with a small one in the same color palette as the larger one. By using a small pattern instead of just a color you create a softer contrast between the walls.

Bright and colorful

Dare to use colors! If you find your dream wallpaper but get hesitant due to a rich color palette, try using it as an accent wall. We understand that the room might feel messy with too many colors and patterns on the walls, but don’t let this be the reason you stay away from colors overall. Pick a wall and allow this to be a central art piece for the room. Try using a solid color or a smaller, more discrete pattern on the other walls in a calm matching color. It becomes almost impossible to have a bad day in a room filled with colors!

What’s an accent wall?

An accent wall is when one wall differs from the rest. During the last couple of years, the bounds for accent walls have been moved and we see more and more of how only parts of a wall are utilized, perhaps it stretches a bit in over a corner and sometimes even the ceiling. By not covering all walls of a room in wallpaper and patterns, you can create a dynamic without the impression being too messy.

Which wall should I pick?

When it comes to picking a wall, there are many ways to think. It is of course a taste preference but one piece of advice is to pick a wall that can become a natural focus point. It could be the first wall you see when entering the room or a bigger bare wall where it is hard finding the perfect piece of art to display. These are typical places where the accent wall flourishes, where it can be seen and heard and become a part of the interiors. In a bedroom, you can always go for the wall which the head of the bed is placed against. An accent wall becomes an extended headboard.
