The paint samples are continuing to dry in the den. The sun has returned but no room in my house could ever be classified as “sunny”. The house sits west which in the winter gives us some nice light on the back of house—which hardly has any windows— and afternoon sun in the front.
My favorites so far are #1 Cooking Apple and #3 Vert De Terre. In the photo above the colors look grayer then they do in real life. I am getting a lot of votes for #2 which is more blue then green. The room behind the den is going to blue so don’t fret if your color doesn’t win this round. Cooking Apple Green and Vert De Terre are both lovely colors but they are too dark for my space. Farrow & Ball was kind enough to send me a few more samples to try out. Stay tuned…
I imagine the walls to be a sage green like the rooms I found below on marthastewart.com. I realize the walls will look dark until I add furnishings, trim, and lighting. Picking paint colors that are up against stark white walls in an isolated scenario is probably not the best idea.
