Go bold this fall in a media room, guest room or any room that you’re looking to add a “wow” factor by painting a wall a little less than 3/4 of the way up and leaving it “unfinished”. The confident and gutsy lines of the paint brush or roller bring a whole new meaning to an accent wall – and we are so in love with the look.
