Accent wall or not-is this a bad idea?
July 12, 2014 in Design Dilemma
We are re-doing our guest bedroom and I am very on the fence about what we've started. The idea sounded great in my head, but now I'm getting nervous! Three walls have been painted a golden yellow...looks paler in the day and more golden at night...and we did one accent wall in a sort of muted brown. All the trim will be bright white, including the electrical plates etc. We also thought we'd try a white chair rail and maybe some framing....my hesitation comes because the room is not very large and is basically a rectangle. Is this too much? Am I going to hate this? I see lots of pictures of accent walls, but they seem to be mostly with white or ivory...should I paint all the walls yellow and ditch the accent wall? I should mention that the colors are taken from an ivory bedspread with nubby embroidery in these colors. It's more ivory and less embroidery. Help! Thank you!!!
