Carlo came up with an inspired idea to mix and match colors and have an accent wall in his Mom’s neighborhood fruit bar.  He made a geometric pattern on the wall using triangles and painting them with fresh colors.

Mix & Match Colors

Carlo chose paint colors of mango, cantaloupe, orange, sunshine, blue skies and soft earth. The wall becomes such a feast for the eyes. It’s a veritable cornucopia of delight and goodness, perfect for a place where people come to refresh themselves.

Having this kind of wall in your home really jazzes up a space. If you keep the rest of the space calm and make the accent wall the focal point of a room, then you bring in excitement into your home, without making it overwhelming. In choosing the colors, use a color wheel or choose palettes from Boysen Color Trends.

We’ve talked a lot about an accent wall in this blog with our collaboration with SM Home. Here’s our latest one with the Color Trend 2018 colors.
