Creative Accent Wall Ideas

Let your imagination run loose by adding an accent wall that celebrates your style and lets you express a wonderfully unique space.

An accent wall is an interior or exterior wall that’s completely different from other walls in the room. It can have a different colour, material or finishing that’s distinctive to only that wall. It adds depth, creates a focal point and can easily be a way to section off an area in the space.

While accent walls have been around for ages in interior design, there’s no shortage of inspiration on how to apply them to your home. Paint may be the easiest and cheapest way to create an accent wall, however, there are many innovative ways to incorporate it into your home.

Creative Paneling

If you’d want to create more dimension and texture to your space, a wall of wood panelling certainly does the trick! The rectangular wooden pieces create a modern look with classic inspiration.

Monumentous Mural

An accent mural can add character to your space and elevates it to a wall that’s completely your own. While it’s time-consuming and pricey to create a mural for the whole room, an accent wall can achieve the look and feel too.

Geometric

Add an extra oomph to your space with geometric walls in your favourite colours. The paint choices here can be endless but make sure that it will all blend into the design of your whole space. You can go with a neutral palette or more dramatic with blacks and blues. Whatever choice you go for, what’s best is that you can definitely DIY this at home.

Temporary Wallpaper

If you can’t commit to a more permanent wallpaper option, temporary ones are a great way to spruce up a wall without the pressure. There are many options to choose from and you can easily change it up once you’d like a new view!

Bright and Bold

As we mentioned, paint is one of the easiest ways to create an accent wall. Go creative and choose a bright wall in your favourite hue for an exuberant space. A little drama can also be added with deep tones that create an intimate and elegant space.

Whether you’re choosing an accent wall or other furnishings for your space, we can help you set the tone to create the best home possible with our furniture and homewares options that inspire everyday, relaxed Australian-living.
