Focal or accent walls can be a really effective decorating technique. Limiting a bold color, interesting pattern, or decorative woodwork to just one wall has some definite advantages. It’s a great way to test a statement design without the commitment required if you put it on all four wall s of a room. An accent wall may be a cost-effective way to bring a high-end product you love, like wallpaper, into your room. And a focal wall can add drama and visual interest to an otherwise bland room.
With Halloween behind me and Thanksgiving and Christmas right around the corner, I can’t help but think of how much I’d like to have a beautiful dining room to host holiday gatherings. While gathering inspiration, I spotted this rustic/eclectic dining space with interesting woodwork and pretty colors. House of Turquoise featured this room from a home decorated by Four Chairs Furniture and photographed by Hiya Papaya Photography. Check out the five tutorials I found to get this look for less:
There’s a chill in the air here that’s making me crave all things cozy. I’m sure that’s one of the reasons I’m drawn to this Pottery Barn styled family room. Along with the cozy factor, it offers a good, neutral palette that let’s the holiday decor take center stage. It’s fun to see how nice the traditional red and green of Christmas look when showcased in a very neutral room. I challenged myself to find five tutorials for DIY versions of items in this room.
