Your walls and ceiling dominate the room, and since you end up spending most of your time in your room, it needs some updates from time to time. While we pay more attention to the furniture, bedding and other details, how many of us actually pay attention to the walls of our room? The walls of any space are often under used and overlooked as the defining ingredient in the room. Take this tour to find out how you can use your walls to make your room shine.
You can freeze your memories and arrange them in various patterns on the walls to make a warm statement.
Use elements like bricks for a back to the basics look. Layer the space with a platform bed and light-hued furniture to keep it casual.
You can use two colors in your space with one accent wall that gives it a contrasting look. This will give your space a colorful lift. Take a cue from this bedroom designed by the architects at Estudio Sespede Arquitectos.
You can play with patterns on the wall with a contrasting pattern like stripes on the upholstery and bedding as well.
Use neutral hues on the wall and add a large mirror on one side to make the room look larger.
Use a graphic element to create a theme in the room. This can be done by adding a single, larger-than-life piece of art.
Wall vinyl or decals are in vogue. You can add a pretty set of decals to do up a wall, while the rest of the bedding remains plain.
Use pastels on your wall to make a soothing statement and layer it with pastel accents like these birds.

The exposed concrete wall here gives it a loft-like appeal. You can layer the space with plenty of solid-hued elements like the bedding.

Use bright and vibrant hues on an accent wall with a decal in the colour of the rest of the walls to attain a cohesive and fun look. This way you can flip the colours and create a specific theme in your room as well.
