WHAT A DIFFERENCE A GRAY MAKES

Gray drag wallpaper from Farrow and Ball

We all know that a fresh coat of paint can transform a tired room. How about a little wallpaper?  While wallcovering is definitely more of an investment, it can completely change the look of a room adding a element of texture to the walls, something that paint can't achieve.
Drag #1280
I was excited to partner with Farrow and Ball on the Showhouse dining room. Known for their rich, saturated paint hues, their wallpaper line features classic prints like acanthus, brocade and lattice patterns as well as modern bamboo and a cheeky ocelot print.
I decided to use a few of their recently introduced colors: moles breath, an earthy gray on the dining chairs and Wevet a soft white on the molding.

Moles Breath
  For the walls I chose a classic drag wallpaper in a deep gray. The paper instantly updated the room with soft texture leaving a sophisticated background, perfect for either traditional or modern decor.

We are installing the room this week. More updates to follow!
