10 Accent Walls For Living Rooms Ideas Trend in 2019
1. Deep Blue Living Room Accent Wall
Whether light and bright, or dark and dramatic, an accent wall is a great way to have a little fun with color and/or pattern. So if you’re looking for an extra pop in your living room, consider an accent wall to liven things up.
This stately accent wall, in a room designed by Dettaglio Interior Design, shows how an accent wall in a saturated color can add depth and interest to a traditional space.
2. Orange Living Room Accent Wall
A bright orange accent wall is a great way to add a burst of energy to a living room. It’s fresh, fun, and full of life. Keep in mind though that because they are so stimulating, electric colors like the orange in this room courtesy of Nest Seekers, are best suited to living areas, and not sleeping areas.
3. Geometric Living Room Accent Wall
An accent wall doesn’t have to stand out and make a big show of itself in order to make an impact. In this living room from Refined Interiors, a geometric wallpaper is a perfect compliment to the warm leather sofa and mid-century modern buffet.
4. Tone on Tone Living Room Accent Wall
People tend to think that an accent wall must be a different color than the others in a room, but as this living room accent wall from Burnham Design demonstrates, a tone on tone pattern can be just as impactful. Here the applied molding is painted the same color as the wall and creates a dynamic, textural effect.
5. Bright Yellow Living Room Accent Wall
Using primary colors together in the same room is a great way to create some energy. In the case of this living room, courtesy of Chris Snook, the accent wall color is bright yellow – the perfect complement to a navy blue sofa.
6. Horizontal Stripe Living Room Accent Wall
Horizontal stripes are a great way to make a room look wider than it really is. If painting the entire room feels like a bit too much, an accent wall is a great alternative. To keep it from looking too choppy, consider two different shades of the same color, like in this living room from Beth Bourque Design Studio.
7. Chalkboard Paint Living Room Accent Wall
An accent wall doesn’t have to be just decorative. In fact, it can be very practical. In this room from David Moriarty & Associates, a bump-out wall was covered in chalkboard paint in order to create a message center. This type of wipeable paint is great for offices, mudrooms, and kid’s rooms.
8. Multicolor Mural Living Room Accent Wall
To add a sense of playful energy to a children’s playroom, consider a colorful, geometric mural, like the one in this room designed by Lucy Interior Design. The intensity of color and design would be a lot on a larger wall, but in this little nook, it’s just right.
9. Mirrors on a Living Room Accent Wall
A feature wall doesn’t have to stop with the paint color. In this room from Suzann Kletzien, the dark blue accent wall is heightened with an eye catching grouping of round mirrors. To recreate a look like this, make sure to hang all the items close together and treat them as you would a single unit.
10. Lime Green Living Room Accent Wall
If you’re not afraid of having a little fun, consider a living room accent wall color such as lime green. Not for the faint of heart, the color in this room from Think Contemporary takes a little getting used to, but the overall look is fresh, fun and full of life!
