Why live with bland décor if you don’t have to? I always try to remember that in my designs. There are so many ways to improve your surroundings in any room of your home—just a little imagination and a bit of time and you can make it happen. One of the easiest changes is to create a graphic impact with walls. Let’s look at a few ways to do that.
Choosing a single wall in a room to paint is a time-tested way to break out of boring surroundings. I recommend choosing a rich color, like the deep emerald green in the bedroom shown above, and applying it to the part of the room that should have focus.
Another option is to add multiple art pieces on one wall – we’ve all seen how that’s done. But what makes this example different is the overall scale of the pieces plus the paint treatment of the wall space itself. It’s another way to bring a big difference to your space.

Taking the idea of sectioning your space with paint a bit further, this example shows how this simple visual division creates a lively interaction between two parts of the room.
If you have the desire to move past using paint to bring graphic interest to your rooms, a more advanced option is to add a textural element. This wood wall is a terrific visual treat and certainly banishes any thought of blandness.
