A Twist on Traditional Painted Stripes

You’ve probably seen plenty of examples of rooms with painted stripes that are all the same width, but this accent wall with stripes of varying widths feels a little more playful. Selecting paint in a variety of colors is a great way to define a color theme for a room or to tie together accessories that lack a common color.

Seeing Spots

This accent wall offers all the same paint color possibilities as the striped accent wall but with the potential for even more variation. Paint the circles randomly all over the wall, create a grid with them, or make them appear to float upwards by distributing them more heavily at the bottom as in the example above. The possibilities for this style of painted accent wall are almost endless!

An Accent Wall Using Diagonals

If you’re looking for an accent wall that adds color and interest but won’t overpower a space, this simple pattern manages to feel cheerful yet centered. We love how these homeowners used a different paint color for each quadrant on the grid, but you could use as few as two colors to simplify the accent wall further.
