Accent wall - You don’t have to cover all your walls. All it takes is one wall to change the look of the entire room. This basement living space combines a black and gray wallpaper with neutral furniture pieces, thus transforming an ordinary space into a cozy eye catcher.
This transitional living space has bold plaid wallpaper as the accent wall behind a sleek black entertainment center and wall mounted flat screen. The gray color scheme is carried throughout the space with patterned carpet and sectional sofa. The blue and yellow throw pillows add color and contrast making this space comfortable and inviting.
Painting the walls high-gloss white is a great way to give a room a high-end finish and to increase the amount of light in the room, says Ili Hidalgo-Nilsson, designer and architect with Terracotta Design Build in Atlanta. Adding trim is an inexpensive way to give order and a high-end look to a wall with a flat screen TV, she says.
