Accent color is said to be final culmination of home or flat decoration. The idea of distinguishing a part of the interior depends on what kind of interior it is as well as on the style of its unique arrangement – bedroom walls ought to be presented in more neutral colours than those in a hall or childrens’ room. Furthermore, it is significant to decide what we would like to draw attention to – the accent colour can perfectly emphasize particular parts of the interior: for instance, whole walls or only their elements. The accent colour may also be used to pick up a fault, which will become an asset for the whole composition.
Accent colour in the form of the colour of the wall or a single pattern on its surface may be introduced in order to empasize the beauty of the piece of furniture or the element of the interior, i.e. a lamp, a sculpture, a vase or a picture. It can also ginger up a trite, typical and featureless elements of the interior. It is worth using a contrasting colour in order to introduce accent colour. A slight contrasting accent could allow to abstract the beauty of other tones used in the interior, and what is more, it brings energy and a sort of effervescence to the interior. The accent colour which has been put on the wall could also contribute to the changes of the proportions in the interior design. In this case, not only a wall or floor in the intensive or contrasting colour may appear the most effective but also doors and windows.
The accent may not only be formed by the finishing material of a wall of floor, yet it could be a single piece of furniture, which will clearly be distinguished with the neutral wall in the background. However, one should remember about moderate selection of the number of contrasting elements as well as their tone. Too many elements do not make an accent, but only a group of distracting objects.
Expressive colour accents are ideal for confident people who are fond of experiments and metamorphosis. Instensive colours are always conspicuous. That kind of interior design will certainly look outstanding and modern. A single tone made more vivid by using different frills is a great idea for interior design, and as far as the accessories are concerned, we can choose any colour we want.
Modern interiors are characterized by simplicity and functionality; there aren’t any unnecessary decorations of furniture, there appears raw wood, concrete, metal, glass. The colour scheme in such interior arrangements is often narrowed to such colours as: white, black, grey and a wide range of beige shades, which make the interior cold and impersonal. Nonetheless, introducing expressive colour accents to modern styling allows to create more vivid interior and emphasize its individual character.
