Most Popular Vinyl Colors

When it comes to color, we go nuts!  There are SO many beautiful variations that one can create with the Oracal 631 vinyl color palette.

We have found that customers primarily ask for BLACK, BEIGE (creme), MAIZE, BROWN (chocolate brown), LIGHT BROWN (tan), DARK RED or DAHLIA RED or
LIPSTICK, and OLIVE for general home decor. 

PINK, BUBBLE GUM, LIME TREE GREEN, WHITE, SIGNAL YELLOW, and TRAFFIC BLUE tend to be the top color choices for children's rooms.

We also personally enjoy designing with DARK GREY, LIGHT GREY, STORM GREY, NUT BROWN (terra cotta), CELADON, SILVER, COPPER, and GOLD.  All the new designer colors are gorgeous colors.

Creating Monochromatic Color Schemes

by MyVinylDesigner 24. July 2009 06:29

Monochrome means "one color"... so in monochromatic color schemes, one color is highlighted through different values (lightness or darkness) and intensity (brightness or dullness).  An example would include the combination of various shades of blacks and grays on a black or gray surface.

Our most stunning monochromatic color combos, with or without second color overlays include:

dark gray vinyl ....... on ....... black surface
light gray vinyl ....... on ....... white or dark gray surface
tan vinyl ....... on ....... light or dark creme surface
silver vinyl* ....... on ....... light gray or white surface
beige vinyl ....... on ....... light or dark creme surface
frosted vinyl ....... on ....... mirrored surface
creme vinyl ....... on ....... slightly darker taupe surface

*Any same-color combination works well if the values, intensity and hues are similar. The metallic Oracal 631 colors are soft and velvety looking with a matte finish.

EXAMPLE
In this project, black vinyl was placed on a dark gray surface, with a second overlay of vinyl popping out in white. The subtle variation adds depth, warmth, and a quiet strength to the monogram.  Imagine this technique on the wall alone without an overlay.  Stunning!
