In this video Erica Lugbill, owner of Lugbill Designs, a high end residential remodelling and interior design firm at Chicago, covers how to choose an accent paint color when painting your space.

The first thing to evaluate is the size of the the room. Small rooms won’t work well with accent wall. Erica advised: “Painting an accent wall can kind of chop up the space and make the room smaller.”

If the space is large enough, then, look for the undertone. For instance, Erica presented paint colors with grey undertone. Check your paint deck and pair it with colors with the same undertone. And if your wall has a brown undertone, look for the warmer spectrum that has the same brown undertone.

The trick is to not have loud or too wild of a color. “You want something that will work well with the main wall color within your space.”

The accent color that you will choose can make or break your interior design. Take it from the expert so you can make use of the colors that can bring tremendous improvements in your space.
