If you want to create a stunning home decor that will wow your guests, you need to pay attention to three elements that work together harmoniously: the wow, the ooh, and the ahh. In this blog post, I will show you how to achieve the wow factor with your walls.

The wow factor is what makes your guests say "wow" when they enter your home. It is the first impression that sets the tone for the rest of your decor. The wow factor is determined by the 60/30/10 rule, which I explained in detail in one of my previous posts. Basically, it means that 60% of your room should be one dominant color, 30% should be a secondary color, and 10% should be an accent color.

The walls are the most important part of the 60% because they cover the largest surface area in your room. They are also the most visible and noticeable element of your decor. Therefore, you need to choose a beautiful paint color that matches your color palette and reflects your style and personality. You can find inspiration from a painting, a quilt, a rug, a pillow, or any other item that you love. Pick three main colors from it and make one of them your wall color.

But paint is not enough to create a wow factor. You also need to add some texture and interest to your walls with moldings and other wooden paneling. There are many options to choose from, such as board and batten panels, planked wall panels, peel and stick reclaimed wood planking, beadboard panels, and so on. These features will add depth, dimension, and character to your walls and make them stand out.

Another way to enhance your walls is to use natural or artificial light. If you have large windows or a lot of windows in your room, you can take advantage of the natural light that comes in and creates beautiful shadows and highlights on your walls. You can also use curtains, blinds, or shades to control the amount of light and create different moods. If you don't have enough natural light, you can add some artificial light sources such as sconces, lamps, or candles on your walls. These will create a cozy and inviting atmosphere and make your walls glow.

By following these tips, you can transform your walls into a wow factor that will impress your guests and make them feel welcome in your home. Remember that the walls are the foundation of your decor and set the mood for the rest of your room. So make sure they are stunning and reflect your style and taste.
