Gone are the days of achieving a uniform palette of texture or color in our homes in any given room. It’s time to embrace the hottest new trend sweeping the design scene what better way to do it than with Accents. Accents are emphasis   given to something which goes beyond mere functionality in other words it complements the room’s decor.

In my line of work my clients have always faced challenges when it comes to understanding accents and what are the right accents for any room or any style. With my extensive research and experience i have been been able to satisfy my client’s tastes. It has not been easy though once you grasp it as a concept it sure just works magic. Different kinds of accents in interior design are;

1.Accent colors

  • Are bold or vivid colors used sparingly aimed at emphasizing contrast Or creating rhythm.
  • Accent colors enable a room to become whole with separate pieces of color adding depth to the composition of your interiors.
  • The challenge is: how to bring the right balance of color as to not overbear the rest of the room or underwhelm the rest of your home.

2. Accent furniture

  • A piece of furniture that stands out because it complements a rooms decor. Used for its great decorative value above all other considerations.
