An accent color is a bold shade, which stands out in the rest of the room and makes it brighter, bolder and more eye-catchy. It can appear as an accent wall, a couple of colorful furniture pieces or artworks or just some accessories like pillows. The point is that usually only one accent color is chosen to brighten up the space but what if you want several ones? Today’s roundup will help you: we are sharing some useful tips on rocking multiple accent colors in a room.
Pick One Dominant And One Accent Color
Pick one color to define the space, then use your second color to subtly accent it. Choose two shades of the same color family – either cool or warm ones and use them for decor. Make sure that your colors go well together, otherwise it’ll be a complete mess. If you’ve found a perfect couple, you’ll be able to create a cool and soothing ambience in your space. The famous 60-30-10 rule is totally applicable here, you may use it to make the decor process easier.

If you are a sucker for bold colors, this method is for you. Try completely opposite colors with different textures and shades to add even more interest and color to the space. To make this style work well, you should ideally combine the shades in balanced proportions throughout the room. That way, no part of the room is overwhelmingly devoted to just one shade. These can be red and blue, yellow and green and many other combos you can invent yourself.
