DON’T randomly select a wall to highlight. The feature wall should be used to highlight the room’s existing focal point. For instance, the wall where the mantel sits, or even where the TV is, makes for a good feature wall. The wall behind the headboard in a bedroom is also ideal. The point is that the eye should be drawn to one spot and if the feature wall is anywhere other than the focal area, the eye won’t have a place to rest. Let the room’s architecture be your guide.
