Creating Moods with Color
  • Vivid - For a look that surprises the eye, opt for a mix of bright colors and patterns.
  • Bold - High contrast, like a deep colored wallpaper and light carpet, creates a bold impact. Big geometric designs and striped wallpaper also heighten drama.
  • Tranquil - Peaceful rooms are created using cool colors with little contrast. Soft, floral patterned wallpaper with matching drapes and slipcovers create great sleeping rooms.
  • Cheerful - Light colors with low contrast make rooms cheerful. Use minimal window treatments to make the most of natural light
  • Formal - Classically detailed wallpaper patterns mixed with rich colors and dark accent colors create formal settings.
  • Subtle - Subdued complementary colors create peaceful, warm rooms. A popular combination for baby's room
  • Natural - Earth tones with white and simple patterns and textures give a room natural warmth.
