I have loved this shade of blue/green all my life and so wanted to have a library painted in that color and I got it. What seems so lovely as a small box holding a 30th anniversary ring is scary when spread over walls, shelves and paneling. It is not that the color is too strong, though it is intense, it is that the books themselves in all their panoply of color fight with the blue. 

Such a disappointment!

I'm now considering "Clunch" from Farrow and Ball. Imagine that.

  1. I can so see you with your Farrow and Ball chart..though think I might have gone from 'rectory red' myself - warm colours in freezing England!
