Or you want to complement things in your room by choosing a color of a different shade. Painting a different color on one wall can bring pizzazz to your space without making it look overpowering, and will also help draw attention towards the wall.

Next, determine the type of paint you will use for your accent wall. If you want to make a zing out of your room, choose bolder colors which will be the complete opposite of your existing paint color. For example, if the rest of your room is painted in reds and oranges, you can choose green, blue, or even white for your accent wall. On the other hand, if the existing colors of your room are more on the neutral side, you can choose a navy blue or scarlet red.

However, if you want don’t want bold colors for the accent wall you can go for a subtle contrast by choosing a paint color that’s several shades darker than the current paint color on your walls. This will be enough of a difference to create interest as well as help interrupt the monotony of a single-colored room.

Or you can rely on your personal preferences that are not found inside the room. It could be your favorite dress, or your favorite flower, or your favorite season. You may look at other inspirations to help you pick your accent wall color. Whatever color you choose, it will best reflect your personality, preference, and your imagination. As the saying goes, the sky’s the limit!

Painting a different color on one wall will help accentuate it and will also warrant instant attention without looking overbearing. For example, you want to paint your room with bold colors for your decorative accessories or special collections, but find out that painting the entire room with color will prove to be too overpowering. Painting a bright or dark color on one wall will help highlight your living room ornaments.
