Computer Monitors do not all display colors exactly alike. Matching a color from our color wheel, as it is being displayed on your computer's monitor, although this may appear to be an exact match, could in fact be only relatively close to what you are matching because of this.
If a wallpaper or border pattern matches
your color exactly, we will naturally show you that or those patterns.
The likelyhood of an exact color match is rather small with 262 thousand color
posibilities. Therefore we will also display patterns that are within a
reasonable range of the color you choose.
Shop Wallpaper By Color First, Then Design
New wallpaper, it's exciting just to think about. If you've never selected new wallpaper for a home or business before, prepare to be amazed at how much difference it can make to a room, a hallway, or even to just one wall. You might be tempted to grab some watch books and dive right in. But wait…are you sure you know what you're looking for? Are there ways to streamline the selection process and still keep all your options open? Should I separate by texture, price, materials, or is it better to shop wallpaper by color?
Many people find it easiest to begin by choosing wallpaper by color. Do you have a favorite color? Not everyone does, but most people can narrow it down to two or three colors or color combinations they love. Consider the room itself, its size, and how much light it gets. Think about tone. Colors have the power to make us feel certain things. Yellow tends to put people in a good mood, while greens and cool blues are relaxing. Purples stimulate creative energies, while magentas and maroons are just plain stimulating. Keep that in mind as you shop wallpaper by color; it will make the next step even easier.
Once you've selected your color or pallet of colors, it's time to think about pattern. You'll likely find that once you've selected your colors, that choosing textures and patterns becomes much easier. Consider the subdued colors and classic patterns of the American Legacy Collection, and how it differs from the CLD Rhythm and Hues line. Consider the secondary characteristics of patterns and how they can affect a room. Subtle patterns can make a room seem larger, while bold designs or contrasting light and dark shades may appear to bring walls closer together. Photorealistic designs set a very specific tone, while abstracts allow for more varied design options. Why consult a professional designer when you know what you like better than anyone else?
