We created an accent wall in our living room using Sherwin Williams Mink. It’s a warm charcoal color and makes a huge visual impact on the space.
Nothing makes a space feel more like “mine” than when I paint it. I absolutely love using bold paint colors, like bright green and Tiffany’s inspired blue. When we started making over our living room I wanted to have a bold accent wall, but I didn’t want to use a bright or contrasting color. I found Sherwin Williams Mink and new it was the perfect choice! It is a warm charcoal color that adds a lot of depth to the space.
Sherwin Williams Mink Accent Wall
Originally, this wall was a darker, peachy, beige. Honestly, it reminded me of a Band-Aid. It wasn’t a good look. I wanted to update the wall color to make the space feel more modern. It was tricky picking a color that coordinates with the natural wood trim in the house, but the warm undertones of Sherwin Williams Mink compliment the trim without feeling dated. Painting this wall was quite a feat, for Jesse. He had to use a large extension ladder to get to the top of the two story wall! But he did such a great job!
In addition to the Sherwin Williams Mink wall, I added a fun 3-D letter display to add interest to the wall without distracting from the color. We painted the other walls Olympic Faint Flicker. The pale gray of Faint Flicker was the perfect compliment to Mink. We added curtains with a medallion pattern in various shades of blue. Plus, a large gray sectional that really tied the space together. I was very happy with how this room came together.
