Navy is one of the most popular colors when it comes to the accent wall. This bold, and deep shade is a perfect choice to create an elegant yet neutral accent wall that will fit into any modern or contemporary interior style. However, using navy alone sometimes can feel too intense, so in this bedroom, we combine the navy with a light wood panel.

The wood element help neutralizes the strong navy, thus creating a more eye-pleasing appearance. To keep the wood in line with our modern approach, we choose oak that had light, neutral finishes that fit well in this contemporary bedroom.

This combination works really well as the gray not only helps neutralize and balance the strong blue tone but also makes the entire accent wall feel softer and more neutral.

For you who love black, then an accent wall may be the one and only place where you can safely and confidently use black paint for your wall. This simple yet strong color not only will create a big and instant impact for any bedroom, but it can also highlight and bring out any other elements around it.

However, in most cases, you need to combine it with other lighter or brighter elements to avoid your bedroom looking too dark and gloomy, and in this bedroom, we combine it with some wood board.

The wooden board adds some fresh and natural twist to the bold black wall, making the entire wall looks more eye-pleasing. To keep the elegance of the black, we arrange the wood board to create stylish geometric looks that further enhance the entire accent wall.

Dark gray or charcoal is another popular color when it comes to an accent wall. These gray shades provide plenty of elegance, but still, look very neutral, so it’s very easy to combine it with any other color. In this bedroom, the dark gray accent wall is quite simple, but thank’s to the wall’s profile and structure that gives some unique depth and layered perspective, the accent wall looks amazing.

Furthermore, we incorporate a lot of white furnishings and accessories that give plenty of contrast against the dark gray wall, making both of the furnishings and the wall stand out beautifully.

In this bedroom, the dark gray element is not an actual wall, but instead, it’s a full floor-to-ceiling headboard that covers the wall elegantly. Then, we combine it with some wood vinyl to balance it out and bring some earthy, natural, and refreshing looks.

The headboard and the wood elements are aligned vertically to create a visual perspective that makes the bedroom feel taller and more spacious.

To match the glam of the gold, we painted the rest of the accent wall using deep, dark red. This beautiful color blend perfectly with the gold stripes, creating a stunning and luxurious accent wall that help elevate the entire bedroom.
