Do I need an accent wall??

izunia33April 7, 2013
I am thinking of making the fireplace wall into an accent wall. The more I think about it, the more undecided I am. I had a reddish, earthy color in mind (warm sienna or Georgian brick). Should I do it or should I just repaint the room with one color (edgecomb gray seems to be at the lead for now)?

I vote with Rockin... One color! You seem to have a lot of things breaking up your walls already ( windows, door openings) and an accent wall would enhance that choppy feel. Beautiful room though.

Agree, also you could consider two wall sconces one on either side of the picture or a larger picture or two.
As well it would be nice to balance the fireplace with matching book cases on each side. Perhaps built in. See below

I was so excited about an accent wall but then started having doubts when trying to coordinate colors. Thanks for the advice! Starting another discussion on dining room colors now - please stop by!!
