Last, how about trying a colorful piece of art. A colorful art piece can not only add the needed pop, but can also become a focal point. This is the best kind of accent. One that does two jobs. Just because art is colorful, doesn't mean it is abstract. There are many traditional and contemporary pieces that with more intense color.
