1. Blue And White
You can use an accent wall to make the small details in a room pop out. For example, the blue room really makes the yellow details pop out.
2. Monochromatic Accents
If you are looking to add color but don't want to go with something totally different from what you have now, go with a similar color. In this example, the designer used two different shades of blue. Not only does that give the room a refined look, but it also makes the brown and gold decorations really pop.
3. Green And Gold
If you know you want to have a lot of gold details, make sure to pick a color that works well with it, such as this gorgeous emerald green.
4. Yellow And White
If you want your room to have a really light feel, stick with bright colors. Yellows and light blues are great for keeping a vibrant atmosphere. The vintage accents also give this room a refined feel while staying cohesive with the bright accent wall.
5. Gray And White
Muted colors are a great option for accent walls, especially if you want them to have a modern feel. Gray walls, in particular, are very versatile. Check out these incredible 70 Gray Bedroom Ideas.
6. Tie It Together
While an accent wall can make the decorations in a room pop, it can also help blend everything together. In this example, the gray walls help tie the entire room together while still making the colorful decorations pop.
7. Big Three
Picking two main colors to work with your accent wall can add a very elegant aura to a room. Blue and green colors, like teal, are especially good for this approach because it is easy to find things that match with them. Notice how flawlessly the blue wall makes the white and brown pieces pop.
Adding an accent wall helps give a room some depth while helping tie the room together. Dark colors are also great for adding bold statements to otherwise muted rooms.
9. Open Concept
Using an accent wall that matches or accentuates accessories and decorations helps link large rooms together. This also works great for open concept rooms that might otherwise feel disjointed. This adds a very refined feel to the entire room.
10. Be Different
If you aren't sure you want to go with a very bright accent wall, you can also pick more muted colors. Deeper colors like maroon may not be your immediate thought with accent walls, but they can add a lot of intrigue to a room.
11. Teal And White
Teal or green shades match beautifully with white and green. This combination is fantastic for ocean or lakefront houses.
12. Red And White
With accent walls, warm colors can be a bit difficult. However, they can also make the room feel much larger than it is. This works great in areas you want to have a simple but bold pop.
13. Yellow And White
While your favorite color may not be the best option for every accent wall, it can definitely be an option. Even if your favorite color is a warm or bold color, make it work with your own personal style. Sticking with your personal taste helps your home have an authentic and welcoming aura.
