Question by  Brandi (14)

Should I paint an accent wall a different color in my living room?

My accent wall is currently red and I am considering painting it again.

An accent wall should make a statement. If the red is no longer making the statement you want to make, by all means change it. An accent wall can be in the same color family, just in a deeper shade on the paint sample. It doesn't have to scream at you to make a statement. Subtle works too.

This is a very popular method rather than painting the whole room the same color. It is easy to change ONE wall so go for it!

An accent wall is a good choice. Make it a wall that's a focal point like behind a fireplace. Also, consider painting the wall a complimentary color to your decor.

Sure! Paint is an easy thing to change, and if you're tired of your room it will make a big difference, fast. If you don't like it, you can always paint it again.
