Impacting Design with a Feature Wall | Custom Homes in Arizona


Camelot Homes specializes in building magnificent custom homes in Arizona with expertise in design. If you would like to set your home apart from your neighbors, consider including a feature wall in selected rooms.

A feature wall is a low-cost, high-impact way of enhancing the interior design while also drawing attention to a particular architectural feature, such as a fireplace, beautiful crown moldings or ceiling rafters made of a rich, dark wood. The idea is to select an individual wall and make it different from all the others, either by adding a new wall color, a stylish wallpaper or perhaps some kind of textured wall covering.

Dark Colors for a Dramatic Effect

Designers of custom homes in Arizona love to decorate with lots of earth tones and natural hues as a way of complementing the exterior scenery. But if you want to add a bit of drama to a room, consider painting a feature wall with a bold and vibrant color, such as a red, burgundy or a deep green.

For a sense of airiness, paint the feature wall either dark blue or black. The bold pop of color draws the eye as your guests enter the room, creating a very dramatic focal point. Darker colors also tend to accentuate any related lighting fixtures and wall sconces.

Custom Wallpaper

If you really want to be theatrical, consider using a stylish custom wallpaper on a feature wall. A little bit often goes a long way. As a result, wallpaper is an easy way to create feature walls in smaller rooms of custom homes in Arizona. There are an infinite number of styles and colors to choose from, including florals, stripes and geometric shapes. Many paint manufacturers even create their own custom papers using their unique line of hues. If you dare to be different, consider using wallpaper on three walls of the room and painting the fourth feature wall instead.

Textured Wall Coverings

One of the wonderful benefits of designing and building custom homes in Arizona is that the surrounding landscape often plays a role in the interior and exterior design choices. Indoor-outdoor living areas are often a key design element of the most stylish homes in the Scottsdale area. Moreover, feature walls made with textured wall coverings of tile, stone or brick are a great way to bring the outside indoors. The natural earth tones of these types of materials offer a subtle yet dramatic effect for the feature wall without overpowering the rest of the room.

The design team from Camelot Homes has many creative ideas for feature walls. Do you want to add a painted mural for the nursery or a child’s bedroom? How about a feature wall made of tufted silk to add a bit of romance to the master suite?
