Committing to a room full of patterned wallpaper or an energetic paint color isn't for everyone, but the good news is that the next best thing is opting for an accent wall, where you pick one spot to put your style on full display. The perfect place to introduce an accent wall is in your bedroom, according to interior designer Taniya Nayak, who currently stars on HGTV's Battle on the Beach.

The best approach is to focus on the wall behind your bed. However, if that doesn't appeal to you, settle on the one directly across from you when you walk into the room, Nayak advises. And don't fret if deciding on the right accent wall color for your space has been a struggle. "The easiest and best way to pick a bedroom accent wall color is to work off of an existing inspiration piece like a throw pillow or bedspread," she says. "If it has a print or a pattern on it, pull a color that is the most minimal from that inspiration piece."

Keeping Nayak's pointers and your design style in mind, click through for 15 stylish bedroom accent wall ideas to take your home to the next level.
