adding color and pattern

When it comes to color, I’m a middle of the road person. While I admire people who go for the gusto with four walls of bright, bold color, I’m more in tune with moderated uses. Accent walls deliver a robust dose of color with less work, more flexibility and require slightly less color confidence. In other words, they’re perfect for lazy, timid, commitment phobes like me.

I rounded up twenty rooms to inspire readers who are looking to incorporate more color in a room, but who aren’t quite ready to take the 4-wall plunge.  As you can see, wallpaper is as effective as paint in adding color and pattern on an accent wall and walls with paint treatments like stripes and chevron equal more than the sum of their parts.
