Amidst a global pandemic, with shutting down of photo studios and ban on travel, content creators have now resorted to working from home to help curb the spread of coronavirus. Not too long ago, bloggers and vloggers, across different genres and categories, embraced picturesque backgrounds to create viral and engaging content, be it a stunning sunset in Goa, a concert in Ibiza or a food truck fest in LA. But with the new normal of spending extended time at home and ban on international travel, content creators are looking for creative ways to make their interiors more refreshing and stimulating.
Seeing the same rooms over and over again can naturally feel very monotonous, no matter how much you love spending time in your home. Add to the fact that your interiors now make an appearance in all of your videos and work meetings alike, the desire to refresh and revive the space is hard to ignore.
Thankfully, you don’t have to get rid of your favourite furniture or redesign the entire house to experience a fresh design aesthetic, all you have to do is create an accent wall that will double up as the perfect background for your videos and Zoom meetings. To help you get started, we have covered some inspiring accent wall designs and textures from Berger Paints India. From metallic textures to rich finishes, you will find plenty of wall painting ideas inspiration here.
Texture and Paint
Sitting in front of a wall that is anything but blank creates a mood, be it a colourful wall, gallery wall or a mix of pattern and textures. Remember to make the background as statement-worthy as possible but do not overdo it or else it might end up being too distracting.

A green wall that doubles as a green screen!
The good news is that you don’t need a huge budget or complicated equipment to create a green screen. This creative solution is great if you have resorted to shooting your videos from home but are on a shoestring budget. If you have a free-standing flat or a spare wall available, you can paint it green or blue to create your own green screen. The wall must be smooth and flat and the paint must be a matte finish. Ensure that your selected area/wall receives plenty of natural light and it is a good idea to invest in a ring light. When you are picking a colour, opt for bright and light greens and blues and stay away from high shine/sheen paints.
Things to remember:
- Adequate lighting is important but so is colour temperature. A mix of warm and cool lighting might not be visible to the eye but will definitely look odd in your video.
- Having the camera at an eye level and positioned not too close but not far enough is key to create the perfect video and eliminate an unwanted double chin.
- Using photos, books, artwork or plants in your background is totally acceptable. Showcase your lifestyle for a personalised background but just don’t overdo it.
We hope these ideas have inspired you to spice up the background for your videos and virtual meetings.
