Winter Color Combinations

Wow! The year has gone by so quickly, can't believe the Winter months are upon us.

We have selected wallcovering, fabric and paint that compliment each other. It is always best to have the wallpaper and fabric in your possession before you pick your paint colors. During the printing of wallpaper and fabric the color may vary slightly. 

The Hunter Douglas Designer Screen Shades offer simple functionality at a great price. The variety of colors, textures, designs and opacities are endless. Available in five lift systems making it easy for all life styles. The shades are custom made to your size window and take about 12 business days for arrival.

The new Hunter Douglas product Solera Soft Shades combines a cellular construction with a soft sculptured look.  Available in both light filtering and room darkening, Solera features four lift systems with internal lift cords for child safety. 

Benjamin Moore Cumulus Cloud (1550) coordinates nicely with the Aubrey modern leaf trail wallpaper in light grey from the Accents collection by Brewster Wallcoverings. You can have a lot of fun with this wallpaper with the colorful accents you can had.

The Oxfordshire pattern in color Pearl from Thibaut's 125th Anniversary Collection is a great winter scene wallpaper with the leaf branch design in white, gray and beige. Benjamin Moore Bleeker Beige HC-80 (top) and Benjamin Moore Waynesboro 1544 (bottom) pair nicely with the wallpaper.

The geometric "Heat the Night Shimmer" fabric in color Grey/Linen from Fabricut is a multipurpose fabric great for draperies and pillows. The fabric color actually goes nicely with the Oxfordshire pattern above.


The grayiege (gray and beige) paisely damask wallpaper from Springtime Cottage by Brewster Wallcoverings matches well with Benjamin Moore Clay Beige OC-11.

The silver and white leaf wallpaper from the Silk Impressions collection by Patton Wallcoverings is beautiful! It has a bit of a shimmer to it and looks great with both Benjamin Moore Antique White 909 (top) and Benjamin Moore La Paloma Gray 1551 (bottom). Painting your trim the Antique White as well as the chair rail and the bottom of the wall the La Paloma Gray would look great.

Thibaut's Filigree collection has a beautiful metallic wallpaper. The Greenwood pattern in Gray Metallic is also available in a Brown and Gold. The pattern has a 36" design repeat so it is best used where there is a lot of wall space such as a hallway or large foyer.



There has been a lattice trend in fabric and wallpaper so I wanted to include the "Georgy Girl Granite" in color Grey/Linen from Fabricut. The modern lattice multipurpose fabric in the Grey and Linen colors is perfect for our Winter Color Combinations.

Anna French Wallcovering - Lyric

Lyric by Anna French is a combination of glamorous wallcoverings with a touch of metallic and the ever sophisticated damask designs. For years Anna French has remained true to herself with her bold original designs and use of color. She also has a lovely selection of fabrics that coordinate with her wallcoverings.

The Arran design is just divine! The Metallic on Dark Taupe pictured here is very striking with the white wall trim.

The Barafundle pattern in Metallic Champagne can be a very subtle pattern when accessories with lighter colored fabrics and paint colors.

Celia Vine is a great nature inspired pattern with the leaves and branches. The design is available in five color schemes.

The Lucian Wallpaper is available in 7 color schemes with most of them having some hint of metallic throughout the design. This can make for a glamorous powder room as well as a bedroom.
