Eight eclectic interiors enhanced by striking accent walls

Blotchy slate tiles, playfully patterned murals and a single oversized circle form these eye-catching interior accent walls that we have collected for our latest lookbook.

An accent or feature wall is one that differs in colour, material or texture from the other walls that surround it. Accent walls can feature in both interior and exterior locations.

Architects and designers often use these statement walls to delineate different spaces in a room, or simply to create striking and joyful interior details.

From a New York apartment to a Helsinki teahouse, here are eight eclectic interiors defined by eye-catching accent walls.

This is the latest in our lookbooks series, which provides visual inspiration from Dezeen’s archive. For more inspiration see previous lookbooks featuring offbeat bakeries, inviting entrance halls and homes with split-level living areas.
