“Autumn Nutmeg feels like a warm hug.”

– Kathy Andersson, Color Specialist

Q: Why did you select Autumn Nutmeg?

A: More and more designers are bringing nature inside through biophilic design. Why? Studies show that it has a significant, positive impact on health and wellness. An Autumn Nutmeg stain showcases the natural characteristics of the wood and helps designers bring people closer to the material and closer to the earth. 

 

Q: What is the importance of an Autumn Nutmeg stain?

A: Autumn Nutmeg is a symbol of warmth and comfort. It offers calm in a time of great change. As opposed to the whites and paint trends of years past, this rich stain invites people to slow down, relax and spend time in place. It brings people together and helps them form deeper a connection.

 

Q: What colors does Autumn Nutmeg work well with?

A: Autumn Nutmeg is a versatile color and combines well with dark blues and grays. It also combines with mint green and peach for a livelier palette. It is well suited to an array of different hardwood species, textures and finishes, providing a layer of depth and richness.

 

Q: What makes NWH’s selection different than others?

A: We’re 100% objective. We’re not in the stain business. Our only concern is helping designers optimize their use of hardwoods to create amazing spaces, so people live better, healthier lives that are more connected to nature.

 

Q: How long do you think Autumn Nutmeg will remain on-trend?
A: The beauty is that Autumn Nutmeg is classic. In three, five, ten years from now, designers and their customers will have no regrets about their choice. There will always be new colors and trends. Autumn Nutmeg, however, will stand the test of time.

Our life is hardwoods and we want our customers make the most out them. If you’re in the furniture, cabinet and flooring industries and would like to discuss how you can incorporate Autumn Nutmeg into your design, we’d love to talk.
