Maybe three years ago we had a slab leak that flooded our living room and destroyed the carpet. With the insurance money we got a new carpet and repainted the living area to include an "accent wall." I had never heard of such a thing and wasn’t entirely in favor of it. But overtime the idea has grown on me.
Below the old accent wall with the old fake fireplace:

Pretty cool. We have yet to fire up the fake fire place. We need to read the instructions.
