Fabric of the Week: Vesoul

Cherry blossoms have always been popular with their lighthearted Asian vibe and pastel hues.


Robert Allen's Vesoul in Sterling is a fabric that uses this familiar motif, but  updates it with a fresh palette of grey and yellow. (Below is a close-up of an actual sample)

I can totally picture this fabric being used in a bedroom, perhaps as an upholstered headboard or as large decorative shams. Paired with soft greys and creams with the occasional pop of yellow in accessories, it would be a calming scheme with a refreshing hit of personality.

Could you suggest a paint colour (name, brand). to coordinate with this fabric. I have a small home so I would like to stay away from the brown as I think it would be too dark. Thanks!
