Conventionally, designers have used accent walls to solve a number of problems ranging from clumsy room sizes, to colour synchronization, to accentuating a focal point in a room, etc. And, for all these, home offices are no exception. There are a number of accent wall ideas that can be applied for a home office decorating.
For a long and narrow space, warm colours such as orange, red and brown can help “pull” in the walls. Painting the short, utmost wall in yellow-brown can help foreshorten the length of the room. Plus, painting a long wall in cool shades of blue or green can give a wider perception of the room.

A room filled with assorted fabrics, colourful rugs, artwork and textures can result in visual disarray. A bold accent wall that hoists the main colours and stresses the tonal colour scheme can help put it altogether.

While painting is a simple way of accentuating the wall of your home office, there are other playful options that you can use. Decals are especially ideal. You can stick-on floral patterns, planets, galaxies, etc. Such designs can be spectacularly impressive and ideal for your home Office, with the accentuated walls forming the focal point.
