Sherwin-Williams Paint Color Palette—and a Giveaway!

14Raymond

We’re getting Medieval on you today—in a good way; we swear—courtesy of this fabulous micro-hooked wool rug, otherwise known as Raymond (as in Everybody Loves—a little insider joke between Annie and her daughter, Charlotte). Inspired by a textile scrap from the Middle Ages, this dense, durable area rug features a showstopping flamelike pattern rendered in shades of red, orange, coral, slate, ivory, brown, gold, and green.

With colors this varied, is it any wonder that our friends at Sherwin-Williams came up with this fun, offbeat paint palette? To make the rug the focal point of the room, opt for two of the neutrals on the walls and trim, then arrange a few accessories around the room in the warm Outgoing Orange or unexpected green-toned Edgy Gold. Or take a bolder approach by using one of those two colors on the walls and the neutrals on the trim and furniture—instant wow factor.

Because we believe in sharing the rug love, we’re giving away a 4’ x 6’ Raymond wool area rug and a $100 gift card from Sherwin-Williams—that’s an almost $500 value, for free! Don’t miss out on your chance to win.

Edgy Gold (SW 6409)

I would pair this rug with a neutral base paint, a dark-stained wood floor, off-white mouldings and medium-weight curtains, and bring in some brass table bases and a bold gestural painting for a wow factor that would set off the rug perfectly. It’d be so luxurious but cozy, like a fireplace in the fall!
