There’s a saying in the design world that every wall is a blank canvas. But if your walls have been looking just a little too, well, blank lately, it’s time to give it an update.

Unexpected textures, materials, bold and vibrant colors, patterns, wall tiles and mosaics, there’s a lot on offer for the home owner as opposed to just paints and wallpapers. Playing with the wall surface creates a more dynamic space. When there’s something unexpected on the walls, the room achieves a more layered look that draws the eye around. The best wall designs don’t fade into the background, but make a room a work of art.

For one, an accent piece does for a space what a tie does for a suit – it completes it, gives it definition and throws the rest of your space in beautiful relief so that anyone who walks in can enjoy all of it without missing anything out.The whole point of an accent piece is to make it stand out and create drama in the space. By that, you could interpret it as contrast, variant or the complete opposite of the general scheme of things in your room. As long as you focus on the ‘making it stand out’ bit, you’ll do fine.
