Easy Personalized Accent Wall
With a few supplies, a favorite shade of paint and some unexpected inspiration, a one-time blank space is now a personal reflection of your very own colorful style.
Hang some art on a blank wall and you’ve featured an artist’s perspective on the world. Make your wall a canvas and you’ve given yourself license to personally express yourself. With a few supplies, a favorite shade of paint and some unexpected inspiration, your one-time blank space is now a personal reflection of your very own colorful style.
Get creative and envision the look you want
Lots of elements can inspire a design. One way to begin is by picking a color that you love and then deciding what kind of statement you want to make. Lis and Keith wanted their entry to be welcoming but also thought provoking. “We love modern art but also wanted something that was very specific to us.” Lis found the place mats and rug at a local home discount store. She matched the paint color to a favorite shade in the rug and decided molding would be needed to frame and elevate the design.
Place "stencils" on wall
Gain inspiration from anywhere. The Cynthia Rowley woven placemats we found at a home discount store inspired us and we began planning our design.
Begin with a light or white painted wall. Add trim molding to frame your design. Arrange place mats or stencil items in preferred design and spray wall to reveal a dynamic relief.
Remove stencils and decorate space
Once assembled and sprayed, the simple motif reveals a welcoming and impressive statement about the style of the homeowners and their take on design.
