Deep purple accent wall in my bedroom

After finally getting around to clean and move things around in the bedroom, I figured that it’s best that I do some painting as well. I’ve always seen things about doing an accent wall, but I’ve never been sure what wall to accent. SO, I figured the best way to do it and not screw it up was to use my bedroom.

It’s really obvious which wall I should accent because it was the one with the bed up against it. I know that some people take a long time in choosing it, but I don’t think it counts when it’s in the bedroom.

So, we went for purple in the entire room with a cream ceiling. We painted the walls light purple and then used the accent wall for the deep, rich purple.

I wouldn’t really say that it was all that hard, but there is something when it comes to matching the edges that I just didn’t figure out. It looks alright form afar, but if you look closely, you can kind of tell that I messed up :)

That’s alright, though. It was fun. It was a nice, fun weekend project to do with some friends and after it’s all said and done, it turned out pretty nice, if I do say so. Maybe next time I’ll have someone else do it, though.

I always thought that the use of purple in this room would really bring out the nice wood tones and I was totally right! Score one more for me!

Great choice of colors!

And here's 2 tips for you:

- next time try using blue painter's tape for clean lines, especially when working with such deep colors

- consider painting the light fixtures' cords the same deep purple (the part of cord where it is against the wall), it will be less noticeable

You did a great job with your bedroom!

Just a suggestion

The room looks good. I would run the cords of your lamps up the corners of your room tacking them down with small hooks. You cover any corner mistakes to a certain degree and you get the white cords off of your purple wall. Plus even seeing the cord coming at a diagonal on the ceiling might be a neat look.
