The Jigsaw Designers have always been advocates for painting accent walls fun colors, bold stripes, metallics or whatever trend is of the moment. But, sometimes a little texture is just what you’re looking for. From textured wallpaper to stone walls, in this blog we’ll show you some great ways to create a dramatic accent wall rich in texture.
The image above is a dining room with an accent wall made of stone. The rustic ranch style room can keep it’s neutral palette, yet it attains a wow factor with the beautiful texture in the stone. One would think that too much space would be taken up in a room with this size stone, however these are half stones which are installed with a similar process of how brick is installed.
We’ve always been a big fan of the exposed brick wall as a matter of fact we’ve dedicated an entire blog to it. Taking the brick accent wall a step further by painting the brick can be a great trick to adding drama like in the charcoal painted brick below, or neutralizing a color palette like the white brick in the bedroom photo.
Additionally, wallpaper can be a great way to add texture to your space. With an almost unlimited amount to choose from, one can express their own personality through many differnt styles, colors, patterns and types. Today, the market can satisfy any style need one can desire from grasscloth, flocked, and even paintable wallpaper. Grasscloth can fit into many styles of space and it pairs especially well with Cape Cod, Traditional and Beach Chic, while flocked pairs perfectly with the old Hollywood Glamazon and Classic French styles. For more information on Wallpaper, see our previous Wallpaper Blogs, and stay tuned for the upcoming blog focused solely on Grasscloth and natural wallpapers.
Paintable wallpaper is hot trend right now because it allows you to love your texture, but be fickle with the color you want to keep. Perfect for you design lovers and DIY types that like changing things up every season or so. Also a great idea for stair risers, and ceilings.
