Opinions on painting one wall a different color?

novicehomeownerJune 30, 2010

Most of my townhome is BM Spice Gold but I'd like to make one of the bedrooms a little different. I do have BM Audubon Russet in the powder room downstairs.

Is it old school to paint one wall a different color? Please post your pics!

Thanks!

People still do accent colors all the time.

It's called an "Accent Wall" and in some decors, it works.
