Accent walls themselves, however, are not dated. Rather, they have changed. Instead of a single wall painted a different color, texture and pattern have taken over. Wallpaper is making a comeback for feature walls as well as stencils, wood paneling and stone.
Looking to create an accent wall in your home? Get some inspiration from these great spaces.
Stencils are hot right now but not in the 80's kind of way. Tone on tone paint but with a different finish create the look of wallpaper.
Wallpaper is also very on trend. Larger scale patterns are more common or wallpapers with texture such as grasscloth.

Stone is also a popular trend for accent walls. Cladding a fireplace or a single wall in stacked stone gives a room texture and warmth.

Another great accent wall choice? Reclaimed wood. The color variation and texture that this wood has makes a real statement no matter where it is used.

If you are afraid of committing to one of the above options, another great idea is removable wall decals. They come in an endless variety of styles and colors and can simply be peeled off the wall without leaving any damage.
Still love paint? Use it in a different way. Paint patterns on the wall rather than using a single color for a fresh look.
