accent walls are not so evil

normally i hate hate hate "accent walls". you know, the rooms where people get lazy and "just want to add a little color to the room" and only paint one wall a color? yeah, those. for some reason it really bothers my sense of balance to only paint one wall, and i find it lazy.

anyway, i have decided to give myself an accent wall. heh. 

when we FINALLY close on this home (supposed to be on the 31st of this month), i am going to paint my bedroom, and accent one wall (where the bed is) in a pattern like this:
