Now that two walls and the "screen" are painted, it is time to move around to the remaining two walls. We began by painting with Benjamin Moore's Light Khaki. But there is a problem here, it is way too green for our tastes. At least we have visualized something more mocha / hot chocolate / cafe au lait than this. Although not as clear in these pictures, it was really more greenish, tending toward olive, than these pictures show.
We dragged out the fan decks, squinted a bit, then noticed a wallpaper sample that I had never used, leaning up against the Library Mahogany and a light went on. Let's head up to Homey D and just color match this in Ralph Lauren! Which is exactly what we did! The results are better than the pictures show, lending a richness to the space without being overly dark.
Be sure to head back to Susan's for more Metamorphisis Monday posts!
