Definition: Accent colors are colors that are used for emphasis in a color scheme. These colors can be bold or vivid and are used sparingly, to emphasize, contrast or create rhythm.
Using a very bright or warm color like red or yellow on a large piece of furniture can be overwhelming if not done right. Not everyone can balance out a very bold color, but a judicious use of accent colors even if they are bold can certainly enliven any living space. Pillows, throws, rugs or wall art are good places for accent colors. You can also use them in frames for pictures or mirrors.
The red frame on Crate and Barrel’s Bellingham Mirror provides an accent color to brighten up any room. To see more on this click on the link
