I am so happy that dressing our windows is back in style. Blinds and shutters serve their purposes, but a room does not look complete without beautiful windows dressing. The padded valances and ruffled swags are gone, but flowing draperies in sumptuous color and texture are here. Restoration Hardware's Belgian Textured Linen Drapes have a deliciously weighty presence due to their texture, and can anchor even the most insignificant windows to transform them into a grand statement. Using a natural fabric with a bold or deep color is a brilliant way to keep your space from feeling too formal. How can you use a deep charcoal paint? Try it as an accent wall, use it on a bookcase or cabinet, or for a dramatic powder room. Dark colors like charcoal gray can be surprisingly versatile if you manage your lighting in the room effectively.
Throw pillows are an easy way to work sage into a bedroom. Find striped pillows in sage and white or chair pads to add interest to the room. You can also use floral pillows that focus on sage, rather than dark green, leaves and stems. Use pillows in a combination of materials and shapes to create variety while remaining focused on sage as the main accessory color. Sage will fade to the background if you use strong or deep colors, so stick to pillow patterns in soft pastels to emphasize the sage in your bedroom. Sage contrasts pleasantly against blue. Many medium and pale blues are highlighted by contrast against sage colors. Add a collection of sage and sea-blue vases on top of a dresser or along a windowsill to brighten a dull room. Sage also contrasts well against other natural colors -- such as those found in maple or dark-oak furniture. While red is opposite of green, you must also account for the grey contribution to sage when picking a contrast color. Stick to pale to medium purples and rose pinks when adding your items in your contrast color. If you use sage and blue vases, add a few lavender or pink silk flowers for a touch of color.
The top reason to decorate with charcoal gray is that it's a sophisticated alternative to black and a dramatic alternative to other neutrals. As an alternative to black, charcoal can be used in any color scheme in place of it. Some charcoal grays appear to be completely neutral but can have hints of brown or green as an undertone. The best way to ensure that your charcoal color is free of a potentially clashing undertone is to hold it next to a pure black color. The most versatile charcoal is free of noticeable undertones. If you'd like even more flexibility with your charcoal furniture, choose a textured upholstery fabric, like tweed. The variations of color and light give the illusion of many different shades of color, making a slight mismatch unnoticeable.
