If you are looking to add color but don't want to go with something totally different from what you have now, go with a similar color. In this example, the designer used two different shades of blue. Not only does that give the room a refined look, but it also makes the brown and gold decorations really pop.

3. Green And Gold

Using an accent wall that matches or accentuates accessories and decorations helps link large rooms together. This also works great for open concept rooms that might otherwise feel disjointed. This adds a very refined feel to the entire room.

10. Be Different

11. Teal And White
