I like to call unique, not-all-the-way-painted accent walls "partial paint jobs." Sure, you can paint one wall of a room entirely and be done. But you can also put your own spin on a painted accent wall and end up with a one-of-a-kind room. The accent walls in these real homes push beyond the usual; you just may find inspiration for your home's own individual style from these successful ideas.
