An accent wall is one wall in a room that has a different colour or design than the rest of the room. Its purpose is to add decorative flair to a room that would otherwise be plain and unassuming. It’s the perfect way to add personality and creativity to your space without it being overwhelming.
A perfect blend of wallpaper and art, wallpaper murals are one of the simplest and most stunning ways to create accent walls in your home. Available in an incredible variety of patterns and styles, they come pre-pasted for easy installation and can be removed and reused at will.
Need a little inspiration? Here are a few accent wall mural ideas to get you started.

The industrial aesthetic has been popular since the late 2000s. Incorporating exposed brick and metal beams, this design style originated with historic commercial buildings and factories being converted into apartments, lofts, art galleries and event spaces. Add some chic industrial style to your living space without the mess of actual exposed brick by installing a brick accent wall mural.
Timeless wallpaper styles
If you prefer a more old-fashioned, elegant style, you might want to create an accent wall with design elements that mimic those often used in traditional wallpaper.
Damask is a timeless design inspired by a type of woven cloth that dates back to medieval times. The complexity of the jacquard patterns made it a luxury fabric coveted by royal families and nobility. If you want your space to exude elegance and grandeur, opt for a damask accent wall mural.

In Hindu and Buddhist traditions, mandalas are visual aids to meditation. They represent the circle of life and the interconnectedness of all living things. Focusing on the intricate, mesmerizing patterns can help you clear your mind of intrusive thoughts. If you’re thinking of creating a space for yoga or meditation, a mandala accent wall mural is a great way to create a relaxing atmosphere.

Zen gardens are unusual in that they don’t generally contain any plants. Instead, they feature stones and sand arrayed in distinctive patterns that are meant to convey a sense of simplicity, emptiness and peace. The concept originated with Buddhist monks in Japan, who wanted places to meditate that were free of distractions. If you want a space that will help you calm your mind but don’t have room for a full-sized zen garden, an accent wall mural is the perfect solution!
