Better Homes and Gardens predicted 2014 would bring a trend in accent walls. I’m certainly seeing it in the Washington, DC region with wallpaper. In the past three months, I’ve had a multitude of calls, texts and emails asking about wallpaper installation for accent walls in all kinds of rooms.
Accent walls make drama. They can highlight architectural elements and focal points. They can also make small spaces dramatic and interesting. You can use paint or wallpaper. I recently did a huge rose pattern paper in a small powder room. It really works! Like screen dividers, papering an accent wall lets you have an affair, not a marriage, with wallpaper. You can make a bold statement with wallpaper without worrying about over-committing!
