Looking for colors to pair with your Sherwin Williams Silver Strand walls? Here are the best Silver Strand coordinating colors!
If you’ve just painted your home Sherwin Williams Silver Strand – or maybe you are thinking about it – you might be looking for the perfect accent color ideas.
How to select your accent colors
When choosing accent colors for your home, there are a few things to keep in mind.
First of all, and probably the biggest with this color, is if you want a neutral color scheme or if you want to bring in pops of color.
Obviously, with neutrals you will bring in other shades of gray, beige, and white.
If you want more of a bold pop of color, you then need to decide what color family you want – cool tones like blues, or warm tones like golds for example.
Consider non-changeable things in your home like trim color, flooring and kitchen cabinets. Sure, they could be changed, but if you don’t plan to change them, select colors that pair well with those tones.
Also keep in mind the lighting in your home. If your room gets a lot of natural light, darker colors might appear to be lighter and brighter.
Lighting really effects wall colors and you should look at all colors in daytime and night time to be sure you still like them.
How to use accent colors
