How to create a Color Scheme with cross-point™

Have you discovered as so many have, that stitching with the cross-point Technique© is fast, fun and easy? Are you interested in putting together cross-point patterns to stitch in a cohesive color scheme for an entire room as I have? (photo above is of my own living room in winter).

My Special Offer this month and next is my pattern ANATOLIA  which includes two new colorways on the website Pattern Page. I want to show how easy it is to put together colors and patterns that blend or contrast to create a scheme for an entire room setting.

Anatolia in grayed green brownsAnatolia color 10 in greyed brown greens is based on historic tapestry colors, a neutral appearing collection of colors that can be accented by reds or grayed blue greens for example.

Option with Reds:

Companion pillows to add contrast will depend on your own personal style and existing upholstery and rugs. If you want to add red as your accent, then I have several suggestions; choices are available in garnet, paprika, coral and spice colors:
