Designing an abstract wall gives you the creative freedom to explore new styles and the blend a variety of designs. If you like travel, you can choose to accentuate your living room wall with a picture of your favourite city. You can also choose from modern prints, mixed geometric designs, or text accent walls.

Printed wall

One of the most used designs, the printed wall is a great way to accentuated your living room. With a plethora of designs available, you can embellish your living room wall with prints or patterns that suit your style. You can go minimal and choose something as simple as this accent wall or you can choose a bolder print as an accent wall.

Solid coloured wall

If you want something subtle yet something bold, there's nothing better than the old school solid-coloured wall. A solid-coloured wall enhances the style of the living room and gives it a little pop.

An accent wall doesn't necessarily mean redecorating or painting the wall by adding new designs or a wallpaper. To bring out the style in your living room, you can design a wall with all of your favourite pictures of your family, friends, or places you've visited to give the wall a more personal touch.
