We should've painted our wall like this. It's dull but it's classy.

I love the modern and bold look of this. My mom loves accent walls like this - we have one of a different color in our dining room and a sponge-painted wall in a bathroom. This is another great option!

What a fun idea! It would be the perfect way to create an accent wall.
