Unusual Accent Wall in My Room

Yellow Accent Wall

Yellow Accent Wall

The picture is of my room - where I work, and spend my whole day.

I was thinking of adding an accent wall to shake things up, but wasn't sure what exactly I wanted. So I decided to use Photoshop to help me come up with ideas for my wall.
I picked yellow color for the base/background, because I like yellow - to me it is a color of sun, of never stopping energy and joy. Since I spend so much time in this room working, playing, etc., I wanted it to be full of life and energy, and pleasing to my eyes.

I also added some white bands to break up the wall and create interest/surprise.

Then I called professional painters who transferred my Photoshop idea into reality. They used some special finishes/techniques to give the design an extra edge.

And as a finishing touch I decorated my wall with a frame that I simply painted on. This element I like the most. I love writing good stuff on my wall, sometimes motivational and funny. I can change the message any time I want, because I use colored chalks, and the wall paint is washable.

I was creating this feature wall for myself, but to my amazement i got so much positive response from everyone who visited my room!

Sounds like you had fun creating this accent wall! The style is definitely not conventional, but the most important thing is that it reflects your taste and personality, which is the most important thing when it comes to decorating with paint :)
