The living room is a space that needs an accent wall or some other kind of focal point, because otherwise it is very monotonous. Today we are exploring 13 different accent wall ideas with some really cool and unique designs. Any one of them could turn your living room décor from smooth to memorable. These accent walls are designed to add character to the living room and seem to be doing a good job.
Decorate one of the walls of your living room with a mirror. That doesn’t sound very exciting when you think about it, but the point of this accent wall is to actually make the frame the focal point of the room, not the mirror. Sany striking frame would be good for this. Maybe you could choose a Sunburst mirror design or something sculptural or very detailed.
Another idea that is very simple in its core is to decorate one of the living room walls with shelves, but not just any kind of shelves. Think of wall shelves that have unusual shapes, unusual proportions, or that stand out in some other way. These circulars are a very good example.
Paint one of the walls in the living room in a special color and then decorate it with a mix of items such as dishes, gardeners and even some accent shelves. Create a decorative installation and use different shades of the same color to make the design cohesive.
The artwork is a great idea too and there are many different possibilities in this case. It’s not just the fancy or famous paintings that deserve to go on the wall. Anything that provols an emotion could work, as this piece of “Love ” made of recycled wood.
Speaking of paintings, here’s an interesting one you might like. The references of pop culture could be a great way to make a contemporary living room look modern. In this particular case, there is something that is interesting: the actual wall of the accent in which this painting is shown which is, in fact, a curtain.
You can basically frame anything if you like and want to show it on the wall of your house. An interesting suggestion is to choose a topic and go with it. For example, you could create a botanical accent wall with framed images of different plants or real dry plants.
Abstract art is great because there are many different ways to interpret it and why it does not send a clear message, but rather a feeling. In that sense, you could create a decorated accent wall with several different molded parts that look similar but at the same time are each single in its own different way. You can arrange them in a grid to create a gallery wall screen.
Oversized illustrations are another legal option. It could be a painting, a picture or even a mural. Think of the designs that send a powerful message and have a surprising visual impact. How about a black-and-white piece?
