The Accent Wall

 The Accent Wall

Step 1. Pick the right wall

You’ll want a wall that already provides interest, such a wall with a fireplace or unique window. Often a symmetrical wall is recommended for the accent wall, if there isn’t an obvious choice.cM9c3m7f-XqBCsy9FdhPVG_VdMUrpDJLVE0xaFibpsReqph4tV06shwthU-XWrdkGGjXK45nUjyiFxTC8VvVGkf7BxD0cw0SOfGqOQjjdkS75oQoeXMvhHW3vPZTQ0kSvR-Brk0

 Step 2. Pick the right color

Your accent wall should complement your dominant color, not blend into it. You’ll want to go with a darker shade, rather than lighter, or the room may be appear smaller. A good rule of thumb is to go at least 2-3 shades darker with accent color.

Simplify it - The 60-30-10 rule:

60% of your room should be painted with the dominant color.

30% of the room is dedicated to the accent color. Curtains, bedding, and furniture tend look best in the accent color.

10% of the room can be dedicated to other decor and accessories. lP_YCJH42TyNuHlCqiUcY6ofsTvuCyF_bcqo2iT1AxgxgtHwWIxfal7tP2WhOAARsO3-l9pLpXpfMZ6WNLrJ47we-s3rNmcKdvglRDP3hJxYIAblTCEvjbTMWRGC_O7EsU_A2K0

Very professional. Painters were very accommodating on the little things.

Claude V., Dixon

We are long time happy customers with many positive experiences with Brooks Painting. We have appreciated the assistance (and patience) with selecting paint colors, the professionalism of the staff and the high quality of workmanship. We recently had some interior painting done and the crew was on time, neat, careful inside the house and very easy to work with. They also cheerfully handled some unexpected drywall repair. I highly recommend Brooks Painting.

The crew is as neat and reliable as the actual painting job and paint used. No boom boxes!! Cordial staff spoke English. The crew got along with each other and worked as a team. The actual finish is / was beautiful. We would like to use Brooks again!

Chris and Gabriel were amazing. Corey was patient and helpful in answering questions and while I decided on colors. The office was easy to contact and had good follow-through. Thank you so much to Brooks for a job I could not possibly be happier with. Feel free to use me as a reference!

My experience with Brooks Painting has been outstanding, and, if it were an option on Google, I would assign 100 stars to their work. Mark and his crew were exceptional in painting both the inside and outside of my Central Davis home. They were considerate, careful, and respectful of my furnishings and yard. Kristen and her office staff were also responsive to my queries and were timely in scheduling the work. Thank you Brooks Painting for assisting in transforming my house into a beautiful home!

Another great job by Brooks Paining. they did a great job on our trim painting and siding varnish. They were very timely and considerate of our home and property. This is our 3rd time in 19 years utilizing Brooks Painting. We haven't been let done. 👍👍

T Thompson

Eric and his crew were on time every day and did a very thorough job. I was thrilled that they were willing to paint my outdoor light fixtures which were getting rusty. I was particularly impressed how much time they spent going over their work at the end to catch spots that were missed. I’ll be using them again for interior painting.

C Lewis

I have always received excellent customer service and the crews are always very concerned about ensuring satisfaction!

Shawn W.

Brooks did a fantastic job on our exterior and interior paint jobs. Quality was high, price was reasonable, and the team was extremely professional and detail-oriented. Mark was our crew lead and the team performed a number of exterior wood repairs, a door re-stain, interior and exterior painting. Mark clearly takes a lot of pride in his work and went above and beyond to ensure the work was high-quality, including finding exact matching siding to fix dry rot, and performing minor repairs that weren't even included in the quote. He and the team were all consistently positive and personable, joking with each other throughout the day, while also genuinely complimenting each other on the quality of their work. It was great to see, and that positivity definitely showed through the work they did. We couldn't be happier with the end result.
