Today I’m talking about a design trend that I’m sure most of us have tried at one time or another when decorating and that trend is Accent Walls. I remember the first time I saw a room with a painted accent wall . It seemed kinda odd that someone would paint just one wall. Then I remember seeing a painted ceiling for the first time and I thought that was even odder. Today, I think paint and decorative wall treatments are one of the easiest and more affordable ways you can create drama for a room.
Remember when accent walls were just a solid color? That was then…
This is now...the design trend of accent walls has evolved into something much better!
Exquisite paint treatments…
Rustic wood accents…
Stunning stenciled treatments
One of my go-to design sources for diy wall accents is Royal Design Studio. If you haven’t checked out this site before it is filled with amazing stencil designs, Wallternatives wall decals and removable wallpaper.
And if you’ve never tried stenciling before, they have a great how-to section on their site to show you how to stencil on walls, floors, ceilings and fabric.
Here are a few of my favorite stencil and wall decal designs…
