If you have a reasonably dull room that you want to add some life to, consider investing in some of the following to create a feature or accent wall:

Wall Mural Decals – An image, pattern, shape, or texture can change the appearance of a wall, therefore changing the overall appearance of the room. Wall mural decals are a great way to change the look of a wall in you room. A nice nature theme, for instance, could give a more tranquil feel to a bathroom while a sports decal would be great for a kid’s room.

Paint – Painting a wall a complimentary or accent color is another way to make your room pop with life. For instance, hues of blue and green go well together. Going more vibrant with yellows and oranges would also pair well. Paint your entire room the main color of your choice and then add a feature color to the wall of your choice.

Frames or Canvas Art – Your feature wall should stand out the most in the room. You can have fun with this by adding your own artwork to the walls. Family photos with neatly placed picture frames, a nice splattered design created with your own paintbrushes, or even a collage of your favorite pieces of artwork from local or famous artists would make the wall more attractive.

Shelves – Shelving is always great to add to a room. Not only can shelves add more style to a room, but they can also be beneficial in improving functionality. Shelves can look great with books, candles, collector’s items, or whatever else you’d like to add to them to make the wall pop.
