Accent walls are generally the first wall you see when you walk into the living room, but there are no rules when it comes to which wall in the room you want to highlight. If you have a fireplace in your living room, accentuating the wall behind the fireplace is another popular design choice.

Finish off the look with shelves or picture frames mounted to the wall. Check out the following living room accent wall ideas that are a breeze to replicate in your home.
