This blog is about the accent wall trends in Miami that we've seen over the last year.

Are you looking to change up your living space but can’t decide on a color? Accent wall trends may be your answer. This design concept sets one wall apart from the rest, creating a focal point that instantly transforms the mood and aesthetic of the room without overpowering it.

Let’s dive into the latest trends in accent walls and how they can breathe life into your space.

2023 Accent Wall Trends

  1. Bold Monochrome: Solid color accent walls are making a comeback but with a twist. Bold, vibrant colors are being favored. “Bold color choices reflect our desire for spaces that energize and inspire. An accent wall is a perfect opportunity to embrace a color that you love in an immersive way,” Elsa Soyers, interior designer.
  2. Textured Walls: Textured walls using materials such as reclaimed wood, brick, or plaster are becoming a top choice for homeowners. They add a tactile element, transforming not just the aesthetics but the ambiance of a room. Homeowners love bringing custom texture to their walls with Systexx, the easier and more affordable option. Ask us how!
  3. Mural Accent Walls: Going a step beyond wallpaper, full wall murals have emerged as a go-to trend. Whether it’s a vibrant, tropical scene or a monochrome graphic design, murals add a unique, personal touch to any room.
