Winter Color Palette for 2016/2017

Snow falling outside. Roaring fires. Hot cocoa in your favorite mug. Festive gatherings. Evergreen boughs weighed down by snow in a dense forest. A cozy red plaid wool blanket passed down from generation to generation. Bright blue skies on crisp, cold days. All of these images evoke the feeling of winter. The time of year where days are shorter, there’s a chill in the air, and we enjoy spending time cozied up indoors with friends and family. Or if you’re the adventurous sort, swishing down a mountain, or snowshoeing through the woods.

It’s easy to bring the feeling of the season inside with color, be it on furniture, walls, or accessories. Winter colors are rich, cool, and bold. Highlight with a bit of glitzy glam on table tops. Accessorize your couches and chairs with cozy throws and pillows in wool.

As far as your paint colors, we’ve got you covered. Here are your Annie Sloan and Miss Mustard Seed winter paint colors:
