Click for bigger image

The color scheme guide is meant to be a teaching tool, and representation of the fabrics and wallpapers shown.  The purpose is to visually show you how Decorators create a style and color scheme, so you may learn what you like best, and gain decorating confidence. 

Every attempt has been made to choose current fabrics and wallpapers, although it is common in decorating to experience backorders and discontinued products.  Decorator Secrets does not guarantee the availability of the samples shown on the color guides, or the performance of any of the products you may choose to use in your home. 

The colors shown on the guides are very accurate, but are not always exact, and have been reduced in size for production purposes. 



  • Beige/Neutral

  • Soft to Wedgwood Blue

  • Medium to rich Green

  • Yellow/gold- seldom used, but can be stunning



Colors suggested could be for main areas or additional rooms.  The suggestions are a starting point only, and would vary according to your flooring choices!  Never paint without testing first!  Read the Chapter in the Workbook “Walls…Trim…Molding” before attempting a final paint choice.
