5. Accent Walls

Avoiding long blank walls is essential to not creating spaces that are perceived as bland and boring. You could have one wall painted in a bold or dark colour or covered with a decorative wall paper. As seen below, the colour, lighting and art piece used for the accent wall were carefully selected such that they stand out on their own and still manage to fit in with the other pieces in the space. You will also notice different areas in the room which we tried to sneak in colours from the painting. This gives a more “put-together” look.

Alternatively, you could maintain all-plain walls in neutral colours and “break them up” with art work, mirrors with interesting frame designs etc.
