Color Wheel Logo

Fall into a new look for your home this season!

It's the perfect time to bring your focus indoors and update your living environment for the upcoming holidays.

Custom orders take time, so must be finalized by October 1 for a fresh new look before Christmas. Stop by our McLean showroom to get started today.

Update your boudoir
with new plush bedding!
It feels like an entire bedroom makeover.

Making over your bed linens is one of the easiest and most reasonably priced enhancements you can make to your home. And luxurious bed linens are a home improvement you'll appreciate every night.

Some bedding selections are primarily focused on function. These include your pillows, mattress pad, blankets and feather bed. Make sure the fabrics feel good on your skin.

After that, the emphasis is on style. Some people prefer the energy of bold colors and zesty patterns. Others like their bedding to be soothing neutrals. You can combine the two by using solid color bedding with borders in a different color or pattern. Finish your look with pillow shams, accent pillows, and a bed skirt.

No matter what your design style, from modern to classic, frilly to masculine, a focus on your bedding can make your sleeping experience more enjoyable and restful.

Faux finish paint can be a
real update to your decorating style.
It adds a lustrous and sophisticated look.

Faux finish painting copies the appearance of other materials, such as marble, stone, or exotic wood. It also includes layering or texturing a painted surface to make it more interesting than a flat wall. Painting a three-dimensional landscape mural can also be considered faux finish.

Types of faux finish include dry brushing, ragging, sponging, fresco, verdigris, feathering, stencils, strie painting, and Venetian plaster.

Some homeowners take a do-it-yourself approach to faux finishes, but the technique can be more complex than you think. A myriad of processes is involved. These include mixing paints, glazes and ground limestone in specific proportions, applying the finishes with a variety of tools including rollers, rags, sponges and brushes, and using plaster applied with a spatula or trowel.

That's why hiring an expert may be the best way to get a professional look that will last. Beautify the flat look of your walls by adding the texture and depth of faux finish painting.

Feeling ambitious? Color Wheel has many faux finish products for you. Stop by today and we will guide you through the steps for a beautiful look.

Fall Decorating
To-Do List

Add fall flowers and plants to your home. Think asters, goldenrod, chrysanthemums, and autumn-hued orchids.
Get ready for the holidays by fine tuning your guest bedrooms and baths. Set out plush wool, cashmere, and faux fur throws for cozy warmth on cool fall evenings.
Order energy efficient window coverings, such as Duette® honeycomb shades, to keep your home warm and save on heating costs.

Add autumn hues to your decorating plan with accents in forest green, burgundy, amber, rust, and chocolate brown.

Introduce natural accents for fall, such as distressed wood furniture, sisal or wool carpeting, bamboo flooring, and woven wood window shades.
