Color Quest ...
I was so smitten with the chairs – I have this obsession with peacock blue, and don't ask me where it came from, because I have no idea – I didn't really notice the wall color until Angelo mentioned that it, too, is pretty swell.
Oh, is it!
I started poking around Benjamin Moore's site (it's the only paint I use) and found
So, today, I stopped by the paint store to nab a couple of chips. And I cut out the color I needed and taped them together (to judge the color from a small square not a smaller rectangle) and looked at that chip in relation to the chip of the color in the adjacent room, and you know what?
This photograph doesn't capture the colors exactly, but the Providence Olive swatch on Benjamin Moore's site looks very, very beige. Then again, Providence Olive on the wall in my TV room looks much more green than this, which pleases me.
So, Jack Pine may have to become the color of my office. Just as soon as I get moldings installed to give me a point up to which to paint. My office has a high, angled ceiling. There's no logical place at which to stop painting. Unless I paint the ceiling as well. Which might not be such a bad idea.
