Pairing French Press with Other Colors: Tips and Tricks

Wondering how to successfully pair this robust shade with other colors? We're here to spill the beans!  

Tip #1: Pair with Light, Warm Neutrals

French Press, with its warm undertones, pairs beautifully with lighter, warm-toned neutrals. Consider using colors like soft beige, cream, or a light tan to complement the dark tones in this hue. This combination creates a harmonious and comforting atmosphere in your space.

Tip #2: Try with Bold, Vibrant Colors

Don't forget that French Press can also hold its own against brighter, more vibrant colors too. Try pairing it with a bold turquoise, a rich gold, or even a vibrant fuchsia. The contrast can lead to some unexpectedly delightful results, adding a pop of energy to your room!
