An Accent Wall

Anaccent wallis one wall within a room that is painted a different shade or color than the other three walls in that room. The wall that is accented is usually the first wall that is seen upon entering that room. An accent wall can be used to highlight a large focal point on or near that wall (tv, entertainment center, bed, fireplace, bookcase).
 
In most cases, an accent wall is a bold color i.e., orange against neutral walls i.e., white.

Or a vibrant shade against other walls of the same shade, i.

Water Base Paints VS. Oil Base

What is the difference between oil base house paint and waterborne house paint, commonly referred to as latex paint?

Now days you have latex paint (waterborne) with 100% acrylic binders in them providing maximum adhesion, which in most cases will out perform oil. They are very flexible, so
they continue to adhere even when temperature changes cause the surface to expand and contract. This elasticity helps forestall chipping, peeling, flaking and other common paint failure (Less Repaints Over The Years).

Painting of House Siding

Wood siding—planks, shakes, shingles or clapboard—is still the most common type and is generally thought of as the most sophisticated look for higher-end or historic homes. Depending on how it's forested, wood can be a renewable resource, too, and therefore a good “green” option. But wood is also the most vulnerable to insects, moisture
 and the elements. Swings in temperature and humidity levels can warp wood, sunlight bakes it and depletes its resins, and water perhaps damages wood the most.
