Accent walls are a conundrum for me. I like the idea of an accent wall, but I rarely see an accent wall that really adds visual value to a room… unless it is in a magazine spread.
I only have one wall in my home that is an accent wall candidate and this is my fireplace wall; but with the hearth, stone, and mantle that leaves me with 1/4 of the wall to paint. After Maria Killam’s post on accent walls I know I made the right decision not to paint it.
Maria Killam, interior designer, teacher, and author of Colour Me Happy blog, wrote a very informative post on accent walls and she graciously agreed to share it with Hirshfield’s readers. If you are not familiar with Maria’s blog, add it to your favorites as her posts always offer excellent decorating tips. Enjoy!
