How to Accent a Neutral Space With Color

Whether you have beige, white, grey or vibrant walls in the room, there is always an area for accent colours. Accent color is. Whether it takes the kind of accessories, fabrics, fixtures or even 1 wall, it’s definitely the simplest way to add character to a room.

Adding accent hues also is a great way to experiment with different color combinations and allow you to bring in those bold tones you’ve been dying to try but might be afraid to utilize.

Neutral accents: accent colours do not always need to be bold — go for neutrals, also. In this gorgeous blue area, chocolate brown plays a critical part as an accent colour. It defines and finishes this window shade while at the same time tying the chair cushions and pillow into the entire look.

Connecting colours: In an open floor plan, an accent color can connect different regions of your home. Upholstery is a superb way to accomplish this. I love these dining chairs have a solid cloth while the wing seat conveys a pattern.

Balancing acts: Even a room painted using a vivid hue can benefit from an accent color. Here, cool green seats balance the brilliant wall color (Bold Orange from Ralph Lauren Paint) and tone down things a little.
