Living room accent wall color ideas: 10 ways to make walls pop

Finding the perfect living room accent wall color ideas can be the difference between a pleasant space and one that wows. A simple coat of paint can take a room from monotonous to moody, or boring to brilliant, and without the time or expense of painting an entire room.

‘Painting an accent wall in your living room creates an instant focal point, and it’s a great way to experiment with color if you’re commitment-shy. Because you’re only painting one wall, if you decide to change it in a year or two it’s not as daunting as if you were to paint all four walls, the ceiling, and trim,’ says Lucy Searle, Global Editor in Chief, Homes & Gardens.
