Ever wonder what is or how to add an accent wall?
My Simple Real Life Truth ~
Does anyone remember back in the 90’s to early 2000 the enormous amount of wallpaper we all had in our homes?
I had pear wallpaper in my kitchen, tone on tone stripe in the dining room, toile in the guest room.
However, wallpaper border at the ceiling was never something I gravitated towards. Although I remember when my first son was born I found a large-scale wall paper with animals on it and I thought that would be perfect as a border above the baseboard so he could see the animals while playing.
An Accent wall can be designed in many ways, here are a few of our favorites!

Seems like this rooms does not need a thing to make it more interesting! Yet the accent wall in a rich deep blue lacquered finish creates a focal point drawing your interest into the space and at the same time pulling all the elements together.
Shiplap is really pretty awesome it adds so much depth to the design of a space by providing a casual backdrop for accessories and furnishings.
A Shiplap accent wall will add interest & texture to an otherwise common space.

Stikwood is such a cool product!
Stikwood is unique, lightweight and easy to install, therefore a good option for an accent wall.

And last but not least
Brick or Stone
Another popular material for an accent wall is stacked stone.
Stacked Stone has been all the rage in the last few years however I’m now beginning to see brick walls paving the way.
It seems like if you were lucky enough to find a space with “exposed brick” it pretty much sealed the deal.
And because brick is so in demand it makes sense that we are seeing options available for easier interior installations.
