New Ways to Do a Feature Wall in 2020

Accent walls have been around for ages. That used to simply mean one painted wall in a room. Not in 2020. Now, a feature wall can include anything from adding texture with natural elements, such as wood and brick, or choosing to go the stenciling route. Are you thinking you’re going to miss the opportunity for a stunning focal point because you have floor to ceiling windows? Not to worry! We have a large selection of beautifully designed shades to add to your feature wall.


Dark Shiplap: A New Look on a Classic Statement

Shiplap has been around nearly forever, but has become a huge trend in the last few years with the rise of modern farmhouse style decor. This type of feature wall is adding in a new twist to what used to always be considered a classic look. Paint! That’s it.

German Schmear to Last the Ages

Exposed brick has always been a showstopper in and of itself. But, when it’s treated with a German Schmear to top it off, nothing beats that look. Abbie’s kitchen, from @abbieonalcott on Instagram, is a true testament to what your old brick could be transformed into with a little extra labor of love.
