It takes courage to stray from the beaten path when it comes to wall paint colors. As much as an all-white space can feel clean and comfortable, neutrals can feel sterile at times. If you’re stuck in a monochrome color rut, it might be time you painted an accent wall to punch up your space. From cotton candy pink to deep navy hues, we have the best accent wall paint ideas for you to try in 2016.
Though typically associated with nurseries and children’s rooms, we think 2016 is going to be the year where pink officially grows up. Bringing beachy west coast vibes to any space from entryways to living rooms, light pinks accent walls instantly add whimsical charm to your room.
We’re head over heels in love with moody wall colors like navy this year and and DIY expert, Tamisha, from Toolbox Divas agrees. Navy walls can create a stunning contrast against light ceilings and crown molding, and can make light wood furniture pop against such a dark backdrop. Forecasted in her list of top interior design trends for 2016, Tamisha points out navy as a great alternative to black when painting your entire space. She also thinks navy is going to popping up everywhere – not just on walls – so keep your eye out for stunning navy accessories and accent pieces this year.
Green can be a tricky color to incorporate in your home, but we love the way these dark shades of green ground the space. Whether you have dark wood floors or wood furniture, this dark forest green color pairs effortlessly with warm tones.
Though we wouldn’t recommend painting an entire room black or dark gray, one small accent wall in those shades can make an amazing statement. Black and dark gray accent walls sound intense, but these moody colors perfectly compliment the other white elements in your space making them look brighter.
