Accent Colors Page 18
Accent colors are a wonderful decorating tool. And I've included one in every
palette because I've seen over and over how using an accent can be the finishing
touch on a room. While the illustrations show a traditional definition of
accents — a detail that is emphasized by contrasting with its surroundings — accents
can also be used in bolder forms. For example, instead of using an accent for
the piping on your pillow, you may want to cover an entire wall with one. In fact, one
of the dictionary definitions of "accent" is simply a distinctive but subordinate color.
Keep this latter definition in mind as well as you decorate.
