Color combinations for Raw Silk

While Raw Silk is a beautiful standalone shade, a few color combinations to liven things up can’t hurt!

Contrast Raw Silk with green tones

One of the best colors to use with Raw Silk is green. Whether you’re looking for classy elegance or a rustic combination, green is an excellent option.

Dark green

Combined with Raw Silk, dark green tones provide an unparalleled elegance that will look great for just about any project you’re working on. If you want each color to shine in its own right, use only a moderate amount of dark green that won’t overpower your other color choices.

Light green

Because of its lighter hue, you can be a bit more liberal with your use of light green as compared to dark green. For example, Fusion Mineral Paint Lichen contrasts well with Raw Silk without overwhelming it, making these two colors a great combination.

Accent colors: red and yellow

Interested in adding a pop of color to your projects? Red and yellow are two tasteful accent colors that always pair well with Raw Silk.

Yellow is a tasteful accompaniment to any Raw Silk piece. Even better, yellow can play the part of an accent or highlight color for Raw Silk, making it an extremely flexible option.

Blue & beige

Blue and beige are great choices if you’re not interested in accent or contrast colors. Both are timelessly classic additions to a Raw Silk project.
