If you are not able to find what you are looking for in the online stores, please call us for a custom pattern search.
Geometric Patterns are the new rage. These patterns are the ultimate transitional wallcovering–while they have a unique contemporary vibe they can highlight traditional décor and antique furnishings. Shown above are pictures of some geometric patterns that make for great accent walls.
2016 Color of the Year
|Pantone Matching System (PMS) is a universal color coding system and each year they select a feature color that is considered the Color of the Year. Typically, the ‘Color of the Year’ will show up in furnishings, towels, make-up, clothing, kitchen goods, home décor, car colors, paint colors, wallpaper patterns, and any other goods to be worn or used or decorative items to just be looked at. I personally loved the 2015 Color of the Year — Merlot. It was rich and deep. The 2016 Color of the Year is at the opposite end of the color spectrum and is in the pastel family.
The 2016 Color of the Year is actually 2 Colors. This is the first time since the Color of the Year program has been in existence that 2 colors have been selected. The 2 colors are: Rose Quartz (PMS-13-1520) & Serenity (PMS 15-3919). See them to the right.
According to the Pantone press release, “the hues which are beautiful pastel shades of pale pink & light blue, are somewhat reminiscent of baby announcements but the color authorities at Pantone say that is not what they intend for you to call to mind. Rose Quartz was chosen for its rosy warmth & Serenity was chose for its tranquillity.” The Pantone report goes on to say the colors are intended to be used together—the warmer tone and the cooler tone suggesting “connection and wellness as well as a soothing sense of order and peace.”
