Gray

This neutral color agrees with and helps every other color.

A Warm Gray Wall. With this the woodwork may well be a tawny leather color, with either buff or cream in the mouldings. A quiet red would also suit.

A Silver Gray Wall sympathizes with a salmon color, as well as with a deep blue. Should there be blue and red in the pattern on the paper, the styles of the woodwork could then be a delicate raw umber tone of brown. The mouldings the same brown, with burnt sienna added to it. The panel may be a cameo pink. A snuff colored brown would also do well.

A Drab Tone of Wall, having an ornament upon it, low in tone, a citrine for instance, would need some force in the woodwork. A rich burnt sienna brown suggests itself for this, with a reddish brown for the mouldings.

These schemes of color can be reversed. Should the general tone of the wallpaper be that tone suggested here for the woodwork, it takes then the color of the paper.
