Paint an accent wall

Sometimes I just want a splash of color and sometimes I like keeping the whole space all one color.
For me just painting an accent wall is the perfect solution.  It doesn’t even have to be the entire wall it can just be a section. However you do it it, you can add a beautiful accent to your room that is easy to change in just a few hours.

Loving this DIY wall of square mirrors. Paint out the wall a color and place square mirrors
evenly spaced in a grid pattern. It mimics a large window!

Deciding on paint colors for a wall and room can be so difficult and frustrating. If you look in our basement, you’ll find several oops paints. Paints I thought I would like but didn’t. In hopes to take away some fear and save money, I decided to gather up some of my favorite blogger/designer/magazine  paint picks as  inspiration  to keep for easy reference. I hope you find the examples helpful and inspiring. Please visit them for more of their great decorating and paint ideas.
