Enhancing Home Style with Accent Furniture & Drapery

Are you remodeling your home or looking to give your home a refreshing new look? Accent pieces help in grabbing one’s attention while still keeping the existing colors together. 

What Is the 60-30-10 Rule?

It’s important to consider that you shouldn’t mix and match too many accent pieces, to avoid your space being too “busy.”

To help pull a room together Interior Designers follow the 60-30-10 rule which states that 60% of the room should consist of the dominant color, 30% should be the secondary color, and that 10% should be the accent. The secondary color supports the dominant color whereas the accent is what you can add to be bold, add personality, and improve style.

Why Have an Accent Piece?

The purpose of an accent piece is to grab someone’s attention, all while working within the existing colors that surround it. In other words, although it stands out, it creates a bond between spaces, bringing them all together. Adding accent pieces to your home brings plenty of decorative value and can add a “wow-factor” to visitors and guests.

What Accent Pieces Can You Add?

Pieces of furniture work great as accent pieces.  The most popular accent pieces homeowners add to their living spaces are:

  • Accent Chairs
  • Patterned Sofas
  • Floor Rug
  • Hanging Textiles
  • Dining Chairs
  • Table Runners
  • Table Cloths
  • Decorative Pillows

Accent pieces could also be as simple as a patterned blanket, a throw pillow, or bold drapery.

Where Do You Start With Selecting Accent Pieces?

First you need to decide how you want to accent your space and where you’d like to place your accent piece. Look at your current color scheme and what would contrast well with what you have. Do you want a chair, pillows, or drapery with a solid fabric or are you feeling adventurous in pursuing a patterned fabric? 

If you are feeling overwhelmed and need some guidance, consult an expert at Fabrics That Go.
