Bedroom accent walls
December 19, 2012 in Design Dilemma
I'm planning on painting my bedroom an off-white/cream color with a deep purple accent wall behind my bed. Is it ever okay to have TWO accent walls of the same color? If so, would you recommend for them to be adjacent or opposite each other?

I am not crazy about 2 accent walls. I would go with one and try not to select too deep a purple pain color unless the other walls have more depth of color. The room could become to stark. God luck! Post your finished room.

I agree with nicoleneesen, one accent wall. However, if you want that color paint on the other walls, you could have the paint store reduce it by 50%, or paint the other walls deep purple on the lower half and white on the top half.

I agree--one accent wall is enough especially if you plan to use your accent color in bedding, rug, or accessories. Take a look at Tempest by Benjamin Moore. It is not a deep purple but more of a dusky deep lavendar. Very soothing for a bedroom. I have it as my accent wall and love it!

I agree with all above. The whole point is to highlight the focal point in a room - and ideally there is only one.

What is your focal point - the bed, a view from the windows? That's the wall to draw the eye to, and it usually is the bed. Love purple - a neutral for 2013!
