Your Color Palette Must-Have: Accent Color

Choosing a color palette is the first step toward creating a great design. When choosing a color palette, decide on two main colors and a third accent color.

A well-executed color palette can pull together any space with great results. However, if everything is exactly the same, it can also seem flat or boring. A space needs “pop.” This can be accomplished by using a contrasting color as an accent. If the room has grey walls, a white sofa and dark furniture, you’ll need a “pop” color — like lime green, orange or fuchsia — to bring it to life. The accent color can often be changed out quickly by using inexpensive accessories or colorful pillows.
