Meditating the Mix: Color Issues
For cool tones, I love what I call “what-is-it colors?” that look different as the light and seasons change. For example, with these Benjamin Moore shades, at first glance you see grey, then green, then blue, even sometimes tan.
|I used the gray-green palette in this open floor plan. The lightest
tone is in the kitchen, and the darkest is in the living room.
This tone, Sisal by C2, looks green in some lights, but tan in others.
I used it in this office in the Richmond Symphony Designer House:
If you have a lot of antiques, I suggest a gold palate or blues.
My last suggestion is to use bold colors on your front door—always high gloss.
If need more assistance, I offer a complete paint-color selection package. It’s a fixed-rate package where I’ll come to your house, help you select colors for up to six rooms, and provide you with a list of paint colors complete with vendor information and sheen recommendations. Together, we’ll create the perfect color scheme for your home.
