Use accent colors, whether bold or subtle, to pull a room together:
- Use one wall in a room as a focal point. Paint the wall a complementary color or a darker shade of the main color in the room.
- Add white to a room to make patterns and colors appear lighter. If you add a dark color, such as black, the darkness of the pattern comes out.
- Paint your walls in two bold colors to tie in with a pattern on a rug or chair.
