When we think about accent walls, the image of bright-colored and painted panels immediately pop into our heads. While that may be true in most cases, you don't have to limit yourself with the said options. As long as you have the right materials and styling tips, you can do almost anything! If you're looking for a way to spruce up your surroundings at home, here are some ideas you can experiment with: 

Cork isn't exclusive to bulletin boardsyou can use it to create texture and avoid a plain wall, too. To make it even more interesting, you can create a striped pattern and hang a few pieces of wall art (as seen in photo). 

If you're not a fan of DIY projects, you can always turn to good old wallpaper. Pick any design that appeals to you and use it to liven up the wall behind your bed.

If you're looking for something you can easily stick-and-peel, wall decals are the answer. You can create your own design and choose colors. The best part? If you decide that you want to change it, you don't have to worry about damaging the walls. 

Fabric is a great way to dress up your walls, too! If you have a passion for words, look for a print that shows your love for it (as seen in photo). Keep the rest of the room monochromatic for a crisp aesthetic.

Find fabrics at Fabric Life by Larry's, #677 Aurora Boulevard corner Broadway Avenue, New Manila, Quezon City.

Old wooden windows can make a quirky 3D wall. You can ask help from a pro or do the work yourself—just make sure you like the layout before permanently installing them on your walls.
