So the paint swatch coup of my bedroom continues. Although this past weekend we reached a turning point when I walked into the Jonathan Adler store and saw Benjamin Moore's Timber Wolf on the walls. I got me a sample and proceeded to make sure it worked with my floors (thank you An Urban Cottage for making me think of that). Its the very same color above and below because my room gets direct light, and the showroom above is bathed in yellow light. I love how colors pop, and I love that its cozy and modern at the same time.
Other examples of Timber Wolf, according to the internet. I love how the color changes so dramatically depending on the light.
I am pretty excited to be able to move forward with something here. Thanks for all of your suggestions.
Tell me you bought a Rex Ray??!! I'm obsessed with his work but I've never seen it in person...oh you so luckyReplyDelete
I didn't. They were on display at Jonathan Adler. They were very pretty though!Delete
That looks great and, looking at your floors, you might be have been able to pull off the black walls. They're not as orange as some oak floors are.ReplyDelete
I don't expect that you read my blog but I'm building kitchen cabinets out of a 12-foot long antique store counter and because I've had to add new wood in places, I have to paint it. I've spent about a month suffering through all of the grays trying to avoid one with too much blue that might make my chestnut floors look orange. Anyway, I found the perfect one--BM Cape May Cobblestone--which is a beige gray. It looks great with the floor, the stainless steel and the marble but, yawn, it's really boring. Not the statement I was looking for. I think I'm going with black. Or something like Farrow & Ball Down Pipe. I feel like I know color really well but, shit, it's always so hard? I don't know who you can possibly to painting with all those colors when I can't pick a single color for my cabinets.
I do read your blog! I was rooting for the darker colors when you posted about choosing a color to paint. I think a nice dark Down Pipe, or Mouse's back will be very pretty. Farrow and Ball paint is amazing! I loved your time capsule too, I put a little note under our wood floors, hope it survives.Delete
