Taupe the Perfect Foundation for your Walls

Some colours are difficult to describe – Taupe is one of them. It is not quite brown yet not quite grey !  It is, however, the perfect foundation for your walls.  It is a calming colour and works with most schemes whether it be traditional or contemporary.  Taupe walls work well with rich creams and golds for a traditional scheme – for a romantic scheme wallpaper walls or paint in a delicate pale blue, introduce cream furnishings, glass lighting and taupe to the window treatments giving depth to the room.  A taupe with pink hues becomes very rich by introducing a plum sofa or chairs.  When creating a stylish neutral room scheme choose different tones of taupe to add interest to the scheme – not forgetting to introduce lots of textures. Darker tones of taupe give a cosy fuzzy feeling to a room.  Add stylish leather accent chairs, chrome or wenge woods to add interest. Taupe is simply a wonderful colour to use in any room – works with pastel shades, works with neutrals, add bright jewel colours and taupe is a wonderful balance.  Stuck for ideas to pull a room together – choose taupe.  Come in and browse some of our delicious taupe wallpapers incorporating textures and sparkle.
