Accent Wall Inspiration

So we have officially lived in our new house for about 6 months now- boy how time flies!!! With that said it has begun to look and feel a little more like home with each day and lets face it- with each project! One of my favorite things about moving is the opportunity to start fresh and create a new space, even if you are using decor and furniture you have always had:)So with that, I loved our new talllllll ceilings- but our walls are so plain! Literally every single wall is the same color, that screams “zest meeee.” So Billy and I were up for the challenge, first was his project he tackled.



Gotta love that bright pop of color now! The best part is this project was cheap and easy! I got the paint from restore  and unlike chevron, honeycomb or even stripes this pattern was fairly simple but oh so gratifying! I love how it looks like abstract trees:)

Now onto the entry way, I wanted to exaggerate the height of the ceiling and draw the eye upward- what better way than to literally point upward with some arrows?

Grab your tape!


Turned out pretty fun huh? I snagged this paint in the “oops” section at Home Depot for cheap too! Then it was time to tape again (this is the time consuming part but so worth it!)


Thanks for stopping by and zestin’ up your friday!!



  • Cool Accent Of Wall From Arrows - I Love My Green Planet - […] Samantha Nason from Atascadero, CA moved in a new house in 2014. It was a house with amazing tall ceilings, but the walls were plain. They were painted with the same color and looked so boring and dull. The woman was excited by the moving because she likes the opportunity to start and create a new space. She wanted to decorate this new home (especially the walls) with more personality and in a different way, although she used her old furniture. So, she had a plan to repaint the walls and decided to add something more on them… She made up a unique method to give an eye-grabbing look on them. […]ReplyCancel
