Some people are afraid of using colour in their home. Aji and I are not “some people”. We love colour. Even before we moved into our new home, we’ve already decided on our accent wall colour.
Our picks ranged from blues to purples to reds until we’ve both agreed on this:
We were positive it was going to look bright even if it seemed too dark on the palette. We have a massive living room window so we knew the light will balance the dark paint on the wall.
So after the move, unpacking and cleaning, we painted the accent wall. (By “we” I mean, Aji painted while I slept and then I took off the tape in the morning)
This is half the wall painted already. Of course we chose nighttime to paint instead of daytime. It gets really warm in the afternoon in our living area.
This is a day photo and the wall looks very blue. It looks a lot more green/turquoise in night photos.
This is the finished wall without any artwork.
We were contemplating if we were going to leave it blank and let the colour be the accent.
You can see the other side of the living room here and you will notice that we really do love splashes of colour.
I just had to add some red in the mix to tie it with my “red love affair” in the kitchen.
Of course I couldn’t help but add some artwork on the wall. It was inevitable.
Then I added a few more picture frames.
Finally, Aji decided to hang one of our “children”, Aster (a Fender Stratocaster American Deluxe), on the wall and the accent is complete.
This is a night shot and an ultra saturated one might I add (sorry to the ultimate photographers out there).
Here’s a day shot of the wall.
These are the updates so far, will for sure do another post if we change-up the wall in the coming months!
Hope you’re having a great week so far!
