Yanic Simard, Houzz contributor. Principal designer at the award-winning Toronto Interior Design Group has a great article to help out with a two tone color scheme. Please review and take a special attention to the framed artwork and how it contributes to the overall success of the interior design.
Per Yanic: "Choosing a favorite color is easy. Choosing a two-tone color scheme for your home? Not so much. Mistakes come easily, and the frustration might leave you reaching for a bucket of white paint. But don’t wipe the slate clean just yet."
His suggestion for pairing the right accent color with each of the six primary and secondary colors are:
Primary colors: Yellow, red and blue
Secondary colors: Green, orange and purple
Analogous: Colors that are neighbors on the spectrum, such as green and yellow, or red and purple
Complementary: Colors that oppose each other on the spectrum, such as green and red, or yellow and purple.

You may recall our post of last week: From Houzz - Color of the Week: Spring Blossom Yellow the image by Tom Stringer (above ) is an example of that warm yellow accent wall.
