One of the long favorite methods of design is Accent Colors. An accent color is a specific shade that stands out against the rest of the room. As such, accent colors are usually bold and bright. The shade can appear in multiple pieces, from chair cushions to backsplash tile to throw pillows. Incorporating the accent color throughout the room creates a feeling of cohesion. But you don’t have to stick to just one accent color. You can also use multiple accent colors in a space to get a more colorful look. Read on to learn how to work with multiple accent colors in a room.
Play With Contrast
You can use a complete opposite shade, like in the photo above. This space combines red and blue for tons of visual interest. Different shades and textures of both colors provide plenty of styles.
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. This creates a logical, cohesive look that appears both purposeful and well-planned.
Keep It In The Same Color Family
The easiest ways to incorporate multiple accent colors in your room is to go with two shades that are in the same color family (like warm shades or cool shades).
By choosing this method, you can be sure your colors go well together, and you can combine them in any way you wish. You’ll create either a bold and bright look or a soothing and cool atmosphere wherever you choose to place your accent colors.
Give It Texture
The Cardinal rules for effectively using accent colors is incorporating a high degree of texture. Just because you’re using multiple accent colors doesn’t mean the rule goes out the window.
The two shades will be better organized. The design also shows how well two accent walls combine in a single room since accent walls are the primary way that people introduce accent colors.
Try With Rainbow Shades
If you feel that only use two shades is boring. Perhaps you can try bringing a rainbow of color into your room. Space above uses rainbow shades against neutral white walls and furniture, giving a fun, artsy look. What helps bring all of the colors together, however, are elements that combine rainbow styles. These all-inclusive pieces are an indicator that you are trying to go rainbow, bringing all of the colors together for a purposeful look.
Subtle And Dominant In A Mix
The final tips are kinda easy. All you need to do is pick one color to define the space, then use your second color to subtly accent it. For instance, you may try a large, green accent wall, as in the living room above. For visual interest, a painting of date trees provides just enough of an extra pop.
