Guest post: Awesome Feature Walls

Hi, Iím Joanna, a writer for Design Shuffle, a cool online portfolio site for interior designers and those looking for gorgeous interior design ideas. I love my work, as I get to look at beautiful designs all day and share them with readers like you. A big thank you to The Joy of Decorating for allowing me to visit with you today to share some ways to create feature walls. Sometimes a bright color throughout a room can be too distracting. This is where the feature wall comes inó it provides just enough color to brighten a room without overwhelming it. Paint, wallpaper, and even shelves, are used to create interest and bring colorful hues to a space. Here are a few of our favorite interior designs with feature walls.

Here is another Asian-inspired print that covers the feature wall in this modern space. The use of swans on a yellow background add such a pop of color to the space.

Ok, we cheated on this one. It was so clever that even with its lack of color, we decided to include it. Who would think messy library shelves could add such personality to a space?
