Contemporary-Style Navy and Wood Bedroom Accent Wall

Navy and wood wall

Navy is one of the most popular colors when it comes to the bedroom. This bold, and deep shade is a perfect choice to create an elegant yet neutral statement that will fit into any modern or contemporary interior style.

However, using navy alone sometimes can feel too intense, so in this master suite, we combine the navy with a light wood panel.

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

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. This simple yet strong color not only will create a big and instant impact for any space, 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 room 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 element, creating a more eye-pleasing. To keep the elegance of the black, we arranged the wood board to create stylish geometric looks that further enhance the entire wall.

To complete this design, we chose navy, the bold neutral shade, to accentuate and give some interesting hues.

Here is another great example of how to use wood elements and turn them into a stunning wall. In this design, we use a typical shiplap wood paneling to cover the area behind the bed, and then, to lift it up, we painted it using sage.

We use this specific color not only to give a more modern look compared to any typical shiplap board, but also to embrace a soft, calming, and refreshing vibe to the entire space.

Dark Green and Gray Bedroom

In this interior design idea, we combine strong and bold dark green with neutral gray. The main reason for this choice is that we want to have a color that stands out without being too vibrant, while the gray is used to boost the dominance of the dark green.

And since we want to keep the dark green element becomes the one and only focal point, we combine it with monochromatic black and white artwork that works really well to give a final artistic touch.

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 them with any other color.

This dark gray accent wall is quite simple, but thanks to the architectural profile and structure that gives some unique depth and layered perspective.

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

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