the green room


Maybe it’s the chill (high of 56° F here today!) of impending Autumn, or the fact that my houses have been getting less and less color saturated with every move, but I’m feeling the urge to cozy the living room right up with a richly toned wall. I’m leaning toward Cat’s Eye or Irish Moss from Benjamin Moore, both are deep hues with a touch of that Paris Green verdigris tone – like a super saturated version of Farrow and Ball’s Arsenic.

I’m giving it a week with the swatches taped up to see how I feel about it.
