Creating Moods with Color 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.
