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.
An interior design history enthusiast and in my own way an erstwhile chronicler of those I call the Lost Generation - those men, some of them gay and many of whom died of AIDS in the 1980s and 1990s, and who are to a great degree forgotten.
