It is unfortunate this listing doesn’t have more photos than this but from what few glimpses are available of this incredibly beautiful 17th château in Loudun (a commune in the Vienne department and the region of Nouvelle-Aquitaine, western France), I am in love. Pretty sure I would have walked through that front door, seen the limestone staircase and passed right out. Listed via Denniel Immobilier.

Many things have changed since the pandemic, and so has our work ethic. Because we’re spending more time working from home, it’s become essential to adjust our methods according to our needs. Creating a home office accent wall will bring that idea to life.
An accent wall is the main attraction in any premises. These walls provide you with an opportunity to add a special touch to an ordinary room. We’ve seen many different home office accent walls designs, yet the best one matches the whole theme of the house.
Give your accent wall a special touch by adorning it with printed wall art. Modern media such as custom aluminum signs will make your images look as good in print as they are in real life.
We have compiled the best home office accent wall ideas to freshen up your interior decor and set a lovely atmosphere.

Popular Home Office Feature Wall Design Concepts

The concept of a home office may be relatively new in home design. But there is no lack of inspiration thanks to innovative designers. Some of us may prefer a small neat corner in the living room while others may want a separate large dedicated workspace which makes it more comfortable to work from home.
No matter what your vision is, every home office design can have a pleasant accent wall. We’ve covered a few inspiring ideas for home office feature walls to help you establish a professional atmosphere.

1. Wallpapers

Wallpapers set the tone in any space. A floral print on an accent wall might help you relax while a neon print will energize your brain. This is why there’s no need to cover an entire space with wallpaper. Instead, redesign just one wall in the style you like to keep the decor in harmony. Use this medium to set the desired mood in any room. If you’re good with your hands, this DIY guide will help you apply wallpapers to an accent wall all on your own.

2. Decorative Elements

Another inventive technique to maximize the potential of the accent wall in your home office is adding decorative elements. Hang framed pictures or works of art on the wall for the best results. Adding some color will make it look jazzier and be suitable for people who are more creative. Themed decor elements also make beautiful options you can use to embellish your home for holidays.

3. Geometric Shapes

Geometric shapes are a chic approach to distinguish your home office. Triangles are frequently used in interior design, but there are many other forms to experiment with. Think of using squares, hexagons, or other shapes to decorate your main wall. We can list numerous examples of bold shapes and colors that breathe new life into the walls. There are no restrictions when it comes to colors. Make sets using different shapes and colors to produce a striking backdrop.

4. Art Walls

Showcase your character through impressive, bold art. Whether you decide to hang large abstract paintings or rustic wall art, it will reflect your sense of style. Incorporate your art preferences into the accent wall pattern to make a statement. There is no better method to calm your thoughts while working than by staring at artwork. Choose a grand work of art that covers a sizable portion of the accent wall. This idea requires very little work or preparation, but rest assured that when it is implemented, it’ll be a sight to behold.

5. Wood Designs

Wooden designs for accent walls can instantly add an air of sophistication, warmth and elegance to any space. This material can improve the overall feel of an indoor environment in a variety of ways. They can enhance acoustics and moisture absorption as well as inhibit some microbes. With a wooden accent wall, vintage, rustic or even modern and minimal designs will look great. They’ll also add a sense of calm, focus and serenity.

Useful Tips for Outstanding Home Office Accent Walls

Countless ways exist to create the perfect accent walls for a home office. The most important rule is to establish a space that’s both functional and beautiful. Still, be careful when making color and material choices for the wall. Explore some common guidelines to aid you in your quest:

  1. DO: Think outside the box. Move beyond simple hues. Experiment with stripes or polka dots. Use metallic colors to define a bold style.
  2. DON’T: Ignore texture. Try different ones instead. Create a wall covered in fabrics, a gallery of photos or anything else.
  3. DO: Design a feature wall in an area with neutral tones. The thought of an accent wall initially evokes visions in vivid blue or red. In a neutral color scheme however, a dark brown wall will produce a striking effect.
  4. DON’T: Refrain from using vivid colors. The color of an accent wall is not subject to any particular rules. You can choose any hue that makes you happy as long as it complements the other elements placed in the room.
  5. DO: Take the color of the other walls into consideration. Usually, light to medium-shaded walls look best next to accent walls. An accent wall will appear nice but daunting in an all-white office as well. Its contrast can give off a modern vibe, yet it might come out as being too jarring.

Tiles in a kitchen? Of course. Terracotta tiles? Been there down that. Terracotta tiles on the walls? Yes please. Bold, warm, and striking just like this Brooklyn Heights Designer Show House kitchen by Jesse Parris-Lamb.

It’s private

“Tucked away in a historic mews courtyard in the heart of London’s Mayfair district, the lounge interior balances the Art Deco references with the 1960s & 70s Modernism. The focal point of the spacious lounge is the grand undulating fireplace located beneath the linear skylight.”
