Blue Accent Walls

Lately I have been finding myself clipping pictures of rooms featuring dark blue accent walls. I love the depth it gives to a room!


In the next two rooms below, the blue wall provides a great focal point in an otherwise neutral space:




Loving the drama it creates in these dining rooms:



Another great example of the blue creating depth - such a beautiful space!


I've posted this nursery before, but I couldn't help including it here:


If you are afraid to commit to painting a wall, how about just creating a large inspiration board using blue fabric? Check out the example below:


What do you think? What is your favorite color for an accent wall?

Love these. I have so few expanses of wall in my open floor plan that I don't have an area where an accent wall would work, but I love the look. Blue is one of those colors that most people like too.

Gorrrrr-geous. I love these deep, peacock-y blues. Perfect for an accent color!

I just painted a medium-tone blue on one of our walls and I love it. With black, white and wood-tones, it's really quite amazing how it completely transformed our living room. I love these pictures too; they really are an inspiration!
