Feature walls or ‘accent walls’ are a great way of creating an impact in any given space. All one needs is a fabulous feature wall to really make a room stand out. An impressive statement wall is all it takes to give a room the wow factor. Here are a few ways of creating a show stopping feature wall...

Dramatic Wallpapers
There is a huge variety of rich wallpapers that one can pick and choose from. A fabulous wallpaper is a surefire way to grab attention.

 An oversized time piece
A clock doesn’t have to be purely practical. By choosing an oversized arty deco design, you can create a distinctive focal point in any room and it could easily be a conversation starter.

Bold colour play
Create depth with a bold rich colour. By painting a single wall with a bold colour like deep blue or rich green, can instantly perk up a room, adding energy and verve. Taking the effect onto the ceiling lends even more impact to the room.

Try a statement fire place
A fireplace is a great way of making a statement in any given space.

Fabric hoop wall art
Framed fabrics in different-sized frames creates an element of interest and brings in colour to a given space.

Picture wall
A feature wall with family photographs is a great way to not only create an interesting wall but also personalising it.


Screens or jaalis in different materials such as metal, wood, etc are ways of beautifying a stark wall.

One could play with large oversized mirrors with interesting finishes to perk up a wall.

Painting motifs or patterns on a wall almost instantly adds beauty to the wall. You can doodle plants or vines across a section of the wall as they look beautiful or even go artsy with abstract or art nouveau designs.

Stone cladding
A wall clad with interesting natural stones or even semi precious bits and bobs like a back lit onyx wall creates a unique statement.
