Accent Wall Color: Thoughts from Shawn, our professional designer
"Creating an accent wall – using a color to paint one or more walls differently from the other walls – can add interest and excitement to your child’s room. If this is your preference, I recommend you accent the wall behind the crib or bed. An accent wall works best if it enhances the natural focal point of the room – which in a child's room is often the crib or bed.
"Alternatively, use the Quilter's Thread accent color in combination with the Buffy Orange primary wall color that I selected for top and bottom colors. This can work most effectively if your room has a chair rail, painted the Mobe Pearl trim color that I selected, to divide the colors. Or use a coordinating wall border along the middle of your walls to divide the colors. Which colors go on top and bottom is a matter of personal preference. Don’t be nervous. Have fun!
"This Quilter's Thread paint will have an eggshell finish. While flat paint is best at hiding any surface imperfections and is therefore frequently recommended for walls, it has washability drawbacks for a room that will likely require at least some spot cleaning in the months and years ahead. An eggshell finish will give you the best of both worlds – some of the appearance benefits of flat paint with increased washability."
