In a home built with traditional, symmetrically lined wall features, you can use decorative features to add style and interest to the space. Exotic colors, patterns, and even textures can go a long way toward making the space seem interesting, without disrupting the sense of unity which this architectural choice makes inherent. If your home has contemporary walls, scattered at random intervals lightly throughout the space, consider using a single color or pattern to bring unity to the area. Even if you can't help but change up the tones on the various walls, you should at least use a unifying factor, such as a single type of decorative piece, or a single color used on all of the trim and molding. This will ensure that the space doesn't get too disparate.
When deciding which wall to use, choose the first one you see when entering the house or the room. Use accent wall decors to define or separate a distinct area from a larger space. This is perfect for open plan houses to characterize the living area, the dining, reading area etc. There are usually two implementations of accent walls. In most cases, accent wall is a bold color against neutral walls. The other version is using a more dominant color against other wall of the same hue.
A large decorative mirror or a bold painting with vibrant colors is often chosen to be the focal point in a room. In this instance, the piece should be hung over a fireplace, or on a wall facing the entrance for maximum effect. Large wall mirrors can create space in a small room and can be used to great effect when hung opposite a window. They can also provide an interesting optical illusion when used along a narrow hallway.
