The fabulous British racing green brings an easy botanical vibe to the room which leads out to the garden…
In its basic form, that means accentuating one wall to give a room more depth or character. Using multiple colours on an accent wall can right that wrong to put a spotlight on the most interesting parts of a room. Here, the deep, dark, teal blue tones of After Midnight have been added to the main elements along one side of the room, while the fireplace and trims are pale – highlighting their character and detail.
But they might be too much for all four walls, depending on the size of the room, its aspect or orientation and the amount of natural light being let in. An accent wall allows you to incorporate bold, dark colours while contrasting other parts of the room. In this case, Black Forest is used for the accent wall in both the bedroom and ensuite bathroom – tying in the spaces beautifully.
Because the rest of the room is pale and neutral, the striking off-black with a green tone does not overpower or darken the space.
In many living rooms, walls are left the same colour with furniture adding interest to a space. If this sounds familiar, adding a feature wall in a complementary hue (similar to the furniture) can really bring everything together.
Above, you can see how the addition of mid-grey Spitfire on the accent wall has a grounding effect, adding interest while maintaining the muted palette from the sofa, rug and other smaller features.
