Accent wall in a long rectangular room

June 17, 2014 in Design Dilemma
I'm trying to decide which wall to accent. My client would like one of the walls in his rectangular shaped living room painted a darker accent color. My color palette is SW-6178 Clary Sage and SW-6180 Oakmoss. Should I paint the longest wall (with the entertainment ctr) the darker color or the end wall with the windows?

If you paint the long wall a dark accent color the room will feel like a hallway I would suggest instead of that you use some art work on that wall or even a tall mirror to give it a more open feeling and if they still want an accent do a short wall. This pic is from my long skinny LR in my old house to give you an idea.

Since you know more about the room it's best to consult the client and see what they have in mind.

Thanks, but the client has no opinion & doesn't want to be bothered with the details. He simply wants it to be done while he's on vacation.
