1. Picking A Wall

An accent wall is a wall painted a different color from the rest of the room and will naturally garner attention. Choosing the right wall will highlight an already prominent feature of the room.

It's best to select a wall in an open area that has lots of light, either natural or artificial. 

The wall that your eye is pulled towards or that has interesting architectural features is especially good.

2. Choosing the Color

A single accent wall can help tie everything in the house together, if you choose the color carefully.

Muchas personas prefieren los colores llamativos al crear una pared decorativa. However, almost any contrasting color will do, so look at your favorite colors to highlight a wall.

If you have minor hints of one color in the room, like red, adding in that color as an accent wall is ideal. Toda la habitación parecerá organizada y como parte de un esquema de diseño integral.

Colors that stand out and can work in almost any home are AdventureField Poppy, OnyxWayward Wind and Chocolate Pretzel.

4. Painting the Wall

Start by taping the edges of the wall you're painting with masking tape or painter's tape. No querrá pintar otras superficies. Cover the floor with a tarp. 

Cut in a 2 to 3-inch area where the wall meets the ceiling and around trim or lighting fixtures, using a brush.

Using a brush or roller, fill in the rest of the wall. Make sure the paint is evenly spread. Start painting from the ceiling down to the floor in long, even motions.

Depending on the color, you may have to use more than one coat. Be sure to let the paint dry between coats.
