We are surrounded by accent colours every day. Everything from furniture to fixtures and fittings to fabric and flowers are used. Whether it’s just a little colour to brighten things up or to completely change the look and feel, accent colours are great for creating that extra bit of bling.

What makes using accent colours so appealing is exactly that, they are just accents. They’re a highlight and not a flood of colour which can often overwhelm a space. And they come in different forms, so you can control how much or how little you want to use.

Accent colours take away the stress of considering whether or not to use the latest fashionable colour. Introducing a new accent colour in line with the latest trend is cost effective and simple. Certain industry sectors have seen a trend towards using corporate colours as accent colours in soft furnishings such as cushions, upholstery and fabrics.

Accent colours can transform the spaces in which we live and work. When considering transforming a space, try using the simple design norm 60-30-10. This follows the principle of 60% hue (e.g. wall colour), 30% visual interest (e.g. furniture) and 10% accent. Find colours that inspire you and keep it simple.

PG Bison’s recently launched MelaWood SupaGloss offers a great opportunity to create excellent quality and affordable accent colours in your application, especially with Candy Red and the brand new, Lime Green.
