Will painting one wall a different color than the rest make a room seem larger?

I really want to try this painting technique.

Yes , depends on the color you use though. Avoid dark colors such as black,dark blue or dark red. Go with very light and bright colors, sky blue, white, or even a light pastel green. This color will add tons of room and personality to which ever room you decorate them with.

This technique will make the room look larger, yes. But also more prominent. One wall in a strong color is a very good idea, for it attracts the eye.

Colours can be advancing or receding, so use this factor to your advantage. Darker and warmer colours advance, Cooler brighter colours receed.

Depending on the colors you choose, an accent wall can make a room seem larger. You just don't want to use colors that are too dark.

Depending on the color you use it can. If you paint three of the walls white and the other wall a different color it will seem more spacious. It's a really good technique for a color that is nice but is too overbearing to use for all the walls.
