Hi. My best friend bought me a beautiful picture for my den for christmas. My house is a cape cod style with 3 dormers on the second floor. I am wanting a coastal or beachie look even if I don't live there. The focus wall in my den I have hung this picture because I absolutely love it. My wall are cathedral and the picture is hung on the main wall. Directly across from it are french doors and windows on each side. Want to create a coastal color scheme thinking that the picture wall should be a accent wall. Any takes?
Any particular reason why you believe that wall s/b an accent wall, e.g. different color?
Not at all. Just looking for suggestions.
Thank you for the reply!
Depending on the specifics of the room plus other factors, a monochromatic scheme may actually highlight your art even more and also create more of the vibe you're looking for, IMHO.
You could easily pull out the piece's colors to create a beachy/coastal feeling.
If you'd like more specific suggestions, feel free to post back with photos and more info about the room and any other parameters.
You could try posting this on the General Decorating forum. It's busier and you will probably get more replies.
Do you see the darkest purple-blue-grey part of the sky on the bottom left of the sky?
I would paint the wall that color and watch your painting pop!
We had a southwest painting with lots of the same colors hanging on a pale taupe wall.
Subsequently, we repainted our room with all black woodwork and butterscotch walls except for that one wall, the focal wall, which we painted black.
When it was done we were not at all pleased with the black and decided we had made a big mistake and would have to paint that focal point of the room again.
So we hung the painting back up just until we found the right color, and wonder of wonders, it popped so beautifully that to this day everyone remarks favorably to that wall.
