A few months ago I moved into a new apartment, which my roommate Amy and I aptly named “Bungalow”, and started the whole getting settled and making the place feel homey process. After getting our (free!) couches moved in, the white space seemed…well, very white. Don’t get me wrong, I love a clean white wall as much as the next person, but this was feeling nearly institutional.
So what did we do? Painted an accent wall of course!
Before we started, the walls felt pretty sterile. We loved our big red couch, but needed more on the wall to tie it all in. We decided on a rich coffee color, because it brought out the warmth of the couch.
Done! We also found a wall decal on Etsy with our favorite Robert Frost quote that’s on it’s way. That will finish off the wall quite nicely I think
