Accent walls featuring one unique color is a popular way to create a focal point or anchor elements in a room. While painted color is an affordable way to add interest to walls, there are other things you can do that don’t take a lot of time, money or effort. Groups of repeating mirrors and mix-and-match plates take on an almost sculptural effect. Shelves lined up with jars, vases, tea pots, clocks, license plates or anything else you can think of is a great way to highlight a fun collection. Tile patterns and living walls of greenery work well even if it is just a single area or wall.
