Verte De Terre or Mizzle?

I totally forgot to post a photo of my new Mizzle Farrow & Ball paint sample. On the left is Verte De Terre and on the right is Mizzle. The colors changed a lot throughout the day. Both of the photos above were taken within an hour of each other in the middle of the day. I’m leaning toward Verte De Terre but Mizzle is a beautiful color too—a bit bluer gray. I love the name Mizzle: A soft blue grey which takes its name from the West Country description for a combination of mist and drizzle. Hmm I’m thinking Mizzle could describe a number of days in New England too!

  4. Oh Vert de Terre for sure in the den. Looks amazing in there, so perfect for the woodwork. Agree Mizzle could be so charming in a bedroom. I can imagine a pillow with some tiny pink petal print on it making a nice contrast.

  5. Verte de Terre. And I love the abstract wallpaper shape on the wall. No, seriously. I’d glaze the plaster to tone it the background color of the wallpaper. Could be really cool.

  7. Yep, Vert de Terre. I think it’ll be closest to what you’ve been saying you want.

    I think the Mizzle is a really nice color, too….perhaps for a ceiling? I love tinted ceilings!

  8. Verte de Terre is my vote too…..I might just add mizzle to my vocab now. Love the name too!

    Great blog btw….not sure where I found you first, but its nice to see a blog in the Boston area, and I’m learning so much more about old house restorations from you!

  9. I adore Mizzle, but think Vert de Terre is more consistent with what you’ve been showing / describing all along.

    Seriously, F&B should sponsor your whole blog. I can’t think of a better ad for them!

  10. Oh, both are so nice! Since you’ve been wanting green for such a long time though, my vote is for Verte De Terre.

    I also agree with the previous commenter — use mizzle somewhere else for sure. It’s the perfect grey-blue.
