How To Choose The Accent Wall?
First Wall That Catches The Attention
Consider The Architectural Features
Avoid A Wall With Obstacles
A wall with obstacles that can be windows or doors does not make the right choice for an accent wall as it will break the focal point of the wallpaper design and make it look slightly confusing. A solid wall with no obstacles that can be behind a sofa, a bed, a desk tend to be the best choices for an accent wall as it will bring out the full potential of the design.
The Fifth Wall
If you want to create an accent wall in a specific room, but none of the walls feel like the right choice, consider the ceiling. Wallpapering ceiling has been a trend for a couple of years now and specifically has had its popularity rise this year. Accent ceiling definitely is the choice if you are looking for that wow factor interior element that will feel unexpected and yet gorgeous and eye-catching. Furthermore, it can make the room feel warmer and very cozy. As seen in the photo above, the Grey Peonies Drawing Wallpaper in this ceiling project by Sam makes the fifth wall stand out and gives the room a very suitable and interesting detail, making the interior bloom.
Choose A Wall In A Neutral Setting
Too many colors can create an overwhelming feeling in the interior. Choosing a wall in a room that has more neutral furniture and decor will bring more interest to the accent wall and draw the attention to it and not split the focus on multiple statement interior pieces.
Be Mindful With The Furnishings
It is very common to have a bed, a desk or a sofa in front of the accent wall, but having too much decor or furniture in front of the wall can hide all of its beauty and the overall created eye-catching, statement interior element. Therefore, keeping it minimalistic without too much going on in front of the accent wall, can be the right way to let the wallpaper design shine.
Pick A Wall That You Look At Frequently
Choosing a wall that you do look most frequently at when you are in the room will only please your eyes more after covering it with wallpaper. As you will be spending time and putting in effort to create the beautiful picture perfect statement wall, it is a wise decision to choose a wall that you will look at the most to enjoy the results more often.
Choose the color wisely - the colors of the accent wall should not only be within the style of the overall interior but be a representation of your interior taste as well. Furthermore, if you are covering the accent wall with a beautiful wallpaper design, then painting the other walls in a color that will match the wallpaper design, will give a finished look in the overall room. Often the color chosen for the other walls is the base color of the wallpaper design or a color that is within the color scheme.

Consider additional decor - matching your statement accent wall with beautiful interior decor can enhance the overall look of the room. Every detail matters, and including even small decors in the interior can sometimes make all the difference.
