I am a big advocate of your home being a reflection of YOU, and for me that translates to expressing myself by unabashedly incorporating colors and patterns. One of the quickest ways to refresh a space is with paint and my home is the perfect example of this. However, I am often asked, “Well, what if I’m  a bit timid about color and don’t want to paint an entire room? How do I inject color into a space…?” Besides incorporating colorful accessories like pillows, rugs, etc., painting an accent wall is a great way to bring color into a space. Word on the interwebs regarding interior trends has stated that accent walls will soon be uncool or not trendy, but around these parts, we break free from trendy expectations and embrace self-expression. Therefore, if you want to paint an accent wall, do so.

An accent wall is a single wall in a room that is painted a different color than the rest. Today, we’re going to look at how I updated the above accent wall with a color by HGTV Home by Sherwin-Williams in their Showcase paint, available only at Lowe’s.

This accent wall in the boys’ room was created to showcase their art and while the blue is a wonderful color, it has been a couple years since I painted that color and I felt it was time for a refresh! So off to Lowe’s I went to choose a color from HGTV Home by Sherwin Williams. 

With the help of the boys, we looked through a couple colors from the collection and settled on a delicious green color called Kilkenny (HGSW1282) from the Color Pizzazz Color Collection

Always be sure to prep the surface to be painted first. I lightly sanded, cleaned, and primed the wall before painting. I don’t typically tape the edges of the wall; instead, I use an angled brush with a steady hand to cut in. If you’re not yet comfortable doing that, then you should tape the edges before cutting in. After cutting in, then I paint using a Purdy roller – the right applicator is key to achieving a great finish.

Solid walls that don’t have windows or doors make for great accent walls. Color is affected by other adjoining colors and light, so keep that in mind when choosing the color for your accent wall. In the picture above, you can see that the accent wall gets lots of natural light, and since green and blue are analogous colors, the bold green accent wall goes beautifully with the rest of the room painted in a light blue.

  3. Over time, algae, mold, and mildew growth can migrate under the siding and lead to expensive replacements and significant health concerns. Power washing your home on a regular maintenance schedule will prevent buildup and lead to a healthier, cleaner home. decking pressure washing

  5. Inside creator Heidi Cailler gave this media room the discovery theater impact without thoroughly overpowering the space by assigning the profound marine paint the TV divider.

  6. Normal stone is effectively one of the most costly surface materials cash can purchase. To reduce expense yet spotlight an excellent stone, simply stay with one complement divider. In this kitchen planned by Tamsin Johnson, everyone's attention is on the smokey purple whirls of the divider ahead.
