Why we love this pic: With its compelling ledge gallery wall adding dynamic layers coupled with breezy, minimal furniture, this charming living room would be plenty beautiful without the accent wall. However, the addition of the black wall elevates this look to new, stylish heights, lending depth and definition to the gorgeous design.

The takeaway: An accent wall just might be what your living room is missing.
