I love using accents walls but I personally think they have more power if they are an a specific architectural feature such as an arch or column.
I'm not a big fan a accenting a wall because it breaks up the space and makes the room look smaller or dated. Now decorative applications such as these horizontal stripes are nice for large rooms as seen in this bonus room. Both accent walls and features are of course perfect for the kids rooms.
