If you’re not familiar with the term “Accent Walls” then it’s a very wide area of the house exterior that makes a statement about the owner, a theme, or a type of Home decor. For example, If you like the color gray then you might add white to the windows and doors of your home, perhaps with pictures of flowers and trees, all in gray.

Accents walls can also be used for privacy, whether its in a single room or with a group of rooms. A large part of the Home interior decoration comes from choosing accents that work well with the room or its theme.
Accent Walls can come in a variety of sizes, colors, textures, patterns, and design styles. Decor inspiration for this wall will be based on the Interior room’s style, mood, and room size and placement.
