Easy Accent Wall Ideas
Washed Out Stripes Wall
A sample pot of paint. Yep. Just that, a ruler and some tape and you can create this washed out stripe look in your home!
Object and Text Wall
This is one of the sweetest walls I’ve ever done. I mixed in objects and vinyl text lettering to create a feature wall especially for my daughter.
Yes m’am, I did! Carpeted feature walls got a bad vibe back in the day, but I’m on a mission to change that! I put a $30 astroturf rug on a wall in my bedroom and it added the perfect amount of color and texture to the space.e
Cane Inspired Feature Wall
This one might look a little complicated, but it’s actually quite easy! All you need is a little painter’s tape and paint, of course! This bathroom accent wall could be recreated in any space in your home.
Painting One Wall
You don’t always have to paint every wall or create a pattern on the walls – sometimes just painting one will do the trick!
Gallery Wall that Hides the TV
This is still one of my favorite walls to date! I love this black and white gallery wall for two reasons. 1. It takes your wall art to a whole other level. 2. The television practically disappears into the wall.
Wood Accent Wall
This is a cheap way to bring gorgeous stained wood walls into a room!
Fun and Carefree Wall
This easy confetti accent wall isn’t only easy and cheap to make, but its also fun. It adds a touch of whimsy to any space and is ridiculously easy to complete! This one is super budget friendly too – you can just use a bottle of craft paint for it!
Classic Style Accent Wall
This criss-cross wall was a huge game-changer for my dining room! It helps to anchor the dining room with it’s traditional feel and pattern, but can easily work with color and modern decor as well.
An Accent Ceiling
How about an accent ceiling? I painted my bathroom ceiling pink with faux white moldings. It adds a lot of interest to an otherwise all white bathroom. You can always opt for a different paint color to not make it seem as girly.
I love this simple graphic wall treatment from Karianne. And guess what? She did it with just a sample pot of paint!
No Paint Accent Wall
This accent wall doesn’t even require paint! And isn’t that black and white classic?
I love the circles on this one – adds a good dose of fun! You just switch it up with any kind of colors you prefer!
Square on Squares Accent Wall
Squares are always a favorite of mine – and these make a bold statement, but are a simple pattern. This would be great in a modern home.
Another one that doesn’t require paint! If modern is your style, this one might be perfect for your home too. Simply use peel and stick triangles to achieve the look!
+ Accent Wall
These plus signs or crosses are a fun and unexpected twist for another modern statement wall! You could easily create them with paint pens or electrical tape!
