Wallpaper + Paint Color Pairings You Need in Your Life

You all know how much I love wallpaper! I've been sharing some of my favorites with you this year. I'm leveling up this time and sharing some paint color pairings for some wallpapers I'm currently loving. Read ahead to find out more about the wallpaper + paint color pairings, plus how I'd use them together in a design.

 

Also, if you scroll to the end of this blog, you can vote for your favorite pairing.  I hope you do, because I love seeing what you all like. 


Wallpaper + Paint Color Pairings

I used my Nix color sensor tool to help me pair some paint colors with these wallcoverings. I deviated with some because, well, sometimes you have to use that decorator's judgment. I also used Sherwin Williams brand for all colors just for simplicity, but with my color sensor tool, I can match to pretty much any paint brand, which is really fun and also helps me get that exact color I want each time.
