Match Furniture to Your Wall Color for a Stunning Effect

Sometimes matchy-match is good. Get a gorgeous designer look by coordinating wall color and a stylish console.

We love the look of objects floating against the wall when you coordinate a rich, earthy wall color in Sherwin-Williams Peppercorn SW 7674 with a console painted in the same hue. The result is a unique paint treatment and a conversation piece in one.

Materials Needed

  • painter's tape
  • tack cloth
  • water and detergent

Instructions

The refined lines of this console really cry out for something special. And this plain white wall is just that: plain. Bring an elegant, designer look to transitional spaces like a hallway by matching a trending warm neutral paint color to a piece of furniture you can use to display flowers, books or decorative objects and give an overlooked space a new lease on life.

Wipe down your furniture with detergent and water and allow to dry completely.

Apply painter's tape just above the wall molding for a crisp, clean edge.

Use your medium brush to paint a layer of Sherwin-Williams Peppercorn SW 7674 on your console. With paint and primer all in one, you won't need to do a primer coat.

Move on to your wall. Paint large areas with your foam paint roller.

Use your small brush for the delicate molding.

Remove the painter's tape at a 45 degree angle.

Add decorative objects that bring a natural edge to your refined tableau. A luxurious fur throw casually draped on a woven chair, cool textile wall art and artisanal items, books and plants placed on your console complete this simple but oh-so-elegant look.
