As this photo shows the color apple green has been used in this Design of a little girl’s bedroom. It is a bold color, yet when applied to only one wall, it does not dominate or overwhelm the space.

Focal Walls can also balance out odd lines or shapes in a room such as this very angular ceiling line, the shorter wall has been painted with a soft white to soften the line between the ceiling and the window wall, and a deeper shade has been used to create a better balance as well as a touch of drama to this well lit space (avoid dark pigments for northern exposed spaces).

Focal Walls are also a great option for those who are apprehensive to use a dark or bold color. one wall vs four is usually a more comfortable choice !

Focal Walls, a great way to introduce color, drama, whimsy, create balance or camouflage in any rooms Design, have some fun and try it !
