Farewell to Frost

The Sky Brightens

We're finally at the point in our yearly cycle when the Northeastern world starts to reawaken, bringing with it a renewed sense of awe and appreciation for things that grow, bright colors, and warm days. As much as we're thrilled to be at this point in the cycle, the deep colors of winter hold their own magic, and I'll be sorry to see them go. In the meantime, I'm feeling drawn to some of our transitional, moody, deeply rich wallpapers and fabrics while we bid farewell to the frost and welcome spring.

Dark green wallpaper in pattern "Swallowtail" designed by Flat Vernacular. This pattern features dots of varying sizes in a selection of deep but muted colors.

Swallowtail in Jungle Evening is a chameleon. Paired with bright trim and thoughtful pops of color, this FV pattern transitions easily from a darker, rich colorway suited to formal spaces to one that feels at home in a casual dining room near the coast.  

Sonia in the dark forest green colorway 'Juniper' is another dark hue which lends itself beautifully to spaces with both light and dark woods, bright colors, and rich metallic accents. Right now we have Juniper on three of our showroom walls, right next to Cascade Clay fabric and our white oak table by Sam Friedlander. The trim and bench are painted in Farrow and Ball's Dimity, and Juniper looks outstanding with these lighter hues.

Dark gray and white wallpaper featuring a stripe and scallop pattern designed by Flat Vernacular. Reminiscent of art deco design and skyscrapers.

Odeon in dark gray 'Oiled Steel' is difficult to imagine inside an interior that isn't located in a large city, but if we had to wallpaper a media room in the Hamptons, this dark and cinematic wallcovering would be a top contender. It's dramatic and dark enough to create the ideal room to binge watch old Hollywood films, even if that room is located in Wainscott.

Don't forget that if you need help matching paint to our wallpaper, or want our advice about how to pair FV with other home decor products, please get in touch or sign up for a design consult with our creative team!
