Accent walls to transform your home

It is a new year and also the perfect time to do something new ith the decor of your house. One of the easiest ways to do this is by adding an accent wall to a room you feel needs some new life.

Here are a few ideas to inspire you into action this year:

Dreamy Blues

The bedroom is a space for rest and rejuvenation. It is the space where you gather your thoughts after a long day at work.

Transform your bedroom from drab to fab by adding a splash of deep blue onto an accent wall. Complete the look by adding some soft touches like feathers or extra cushions onto the bed.

In the corner

When it comes to creating an accent wall, it doesn't necessarily have to be an entire wall, it can be a geometric corner.

Show off your uniqueness and individuality by creating geometric accent corners. Choose colours that compliment the geometric movement like retro pastels.

Say it with a stripe

Be bold and different with a striped accent wall in the walkway or foyer of your home.

Painting horizontal lines on a narrow wall makes the wall look wider than what it is, adding extra room to a small space without the expense of renovating.


Creating an accent wall is about creating a focal point in a room or space that highlights the best parts of the room. Why not think outside the box and use other materials to create the accent wall?

Use old pieces of wood/pallets and create a strip of wood down a wall, especially in the lounge. This way you accentuate the wall and create a tv unit, the best of both worlds.


Let your inner creativity shine through and opt for an ombré themed wall.

You can achieve this effect by painting stripes of colour and with a soft brush blurring the lines between to create a smooth ombré effect.

Glorious Gold

Add a pop of gold to your home by decking your wall out in a sophisticated marble print.

This goes very well with a contemporary or retro styled room.

Beach Holiday

Escape to the beach every time you walk past your wall with this easy DIY weathered plank wall.

This great DIY project only needs a few planks and paint.

Polka dot decal

Add a splash of fun and childhood wonder to your accent wall with gold polka dots.

It is lighthearted and adds a sense of fun to your home.
