Unifying your decorative scheme with an accent wall

One of the most popular interior design features in the modern home is the accent wall, and it can work beautifully in a bedroom or bathroom. By being able to introduce a bright or bold hue around your bathroom vanity or main beauty area, you can instantly set the color scheme for the space. Here are a few ideas to help pull it together.

Color blocking is a wonderfully effective means of unifying the look of your washroom, and its the practice of using complementary hues or varying shades of the same color. For instance, if you use a green accent wall, you can incorporate pale green on your window treatments while opting for forest green in your linens.

However, if you don't want to go overboard, you can include small pops of color throughout the bathroom. Consider replacing a few tiles in your shower stall with matching hues of mosaic tile, or include a few scented candles. As long as you incorporate a few of these accents, the streamlined effect will benefit the atmosphere of the room.

Once you've settled on a paint color, a vanity and other important furnishings, you can start to put your redesigned bathroom together. How have you used an accent wall to decorate your bathroom?
