RE: Help needed-fabric, furniture placement and MORE!! (Follow-Up #37)

posted by: dorry2 on 01.22.2007 at 09:55 am in Home Decorating Forum

The link is for the sofa with the fabric through Boyles. The sofa number is 2217-78, fabric is Philyaw, grade 23, color gold/yellow. On the home page, click on "furniture shopping," then click on "build your own upholstery." Click on "Start Custom Upholstery Designer" and then you can enter 2217-78 and plug in the fabric information above. I plan to do another look at fabric for these two pieces (sofa and loveseat). If I could find something in that smaller, nubby texture that would blend with the rug, I would like that look. This gold is the best I have been able to find over the last year that really looks great with the wall and rug color.

This is our incomplete kitchen painted for the second time using BM guesthouse. It is very golden in the daytime, tan at other times of the day.

Here is a link that might be useful: kitchen

BM Guesthouse with Kashmir Gold paints. She had hard time finding creamy color not too pink or peach for the granite. I like!

RE: What color paint for FR with gold/tan sofas? (Follow-Up #2)

posted by: sharon_g_in_fl on 08.22.2006 at 09:55 am in Home Decorating Forum

Hi there, just to show you can do almost anything ... here's my LR with a camelcolored sofa. It's deep red (obviously). I also considered a medium to deep olive (one that wouldn't read too green) but you can go lighter too. It's all about what you want from the room, the lighting and other elements. Maybe pick some pillows you like with the camel color and find another color or two from the pillow to try on your walls.

Hi and thanks for the kind words all! I have not been posting in awhile but I give full credit to the fine folks here for talking me into painting the LR red. It's dramatic but I still love it. I like what sallymo said about the windows acting as artwork -- it is true, though I'd never thought about it.

Janet: the color is Carriage Red from Fine Paints of Europe. I looked and looked and looked at reds and I will tell you that FPE uses some very expensive and rare pigmentation that allowed me to get that color. It was impossible for our local dealer to color match it. For certain uses, FPE paints are well worth the expense. This was one of them. And with a grey primer it covered in 2 coats!

ranchreno if it is a more monochromatic look you are after, here is a "before" pic with BM's Desert Tan on the walls. It was a fine look too!

I have Waterbury Cream in my current LR/DR and absolutely love it. Goes from light gold to mustard to a wheat color in different lights. Looks great with any wood or upholstery.

Great rec for a BM goldish color --

RE: Dry Sage by Ben. Moore (Follow-Up #1)

posted by: lulubluebell on 09.23.2006 at 01:17 am in Home Decorating Forum

I did buy a quart to try on my walls and really loved it, but after realizing that it will be in 3 rooms with my open floor plan, I am concerned it may be too dark. So, I found BM Cheyenne and tried that sample bottle and I love it too! Cheyenne Green is very similar to the Dry Sage but it is just a smidge lighter but gives that same look. Anyway, if you're interested I can email you some pictures. I just cannot figure out how to post them here and have spent so much time trying to figure it out. Let me know and I will send you the picture of not only those 2 colors but about 8 other sage colors to boot!

NOTES:

Good recommendations for true sage greens:
BM Dry Sage
BM Cheyenne Green (lighter)

RE: Window treatments for french doors? (Follow-Up #21)

posted by: jginnj on 08.21.2006 at 10:22 am in Home Decorating Forum

cindyloowoo,

Thanks, the paint is EK Cognac. The sofa and lovestea are from the Pottery Barn...Greenwich (oat suede). I have conmidered blinds for the doors as well but worried they may be a bit bulky since they wouldn't be recessed in like the windows. I think I may be leaning towards the honeycomb shades in a 3/4" pleat. So you think leave the kitchen window open...no blinds?

janet_ny2nc,

Thanks! The tile is a tumbled travertine. I bought mine from Ideal Tile...they have quite a few stores and they ship. The color is called "Arrianna". It's a very light tile but has walnut colored veining running threw it.

okmoreh,
I want something thats gonna kill the light when I need dim. I don't want light filtering. I use the door quite often (let the dog out). Door opens inward.

sallymo,
Yes I'm open to Roman shades as well. I don't want anything that looks to heavy though.

NOTES:

In the EK Cognac room, the matching sofas are PB Greenwich sofa in color Oat Suede.

RE: Difference between SW Blonde and Restrained Gold? (Follow-Up #7)

posted by: dixiedo on 07.10.2006 at 09:15 am in Home Decorating Forum

I think it just depends on the light. In my morning room, where the sun comes up, it is a very light gold, but afternoon when the sun is in the front of the house, it gets MUCH deeper... as my FIL called it, Harvest Gold. There are some conditions where it gets a *bit* orangey (apricot-ty) to me, but not enough that I would ever change this great color!

Here is Blonde at different times to get an idea of it's change in my home (note the HUGE change in tone in the first 2 pictures):

RE: Ellen Kennon FS Paint (Follow-Up #4)

You're welcome. Seems like this has been the summer of Sherwin Williams for me and I've been out of the EK loop for the most part. I didn't even know she was working on new colors until the new swatches came in the mail one day. The new colors are neutral and sophisticated, very lovely.

I'm seeing a trend as far as people wanting to lighten up and go less saturated with color, but still have a few rooms in their home with a burst or two of strong color. There really seems to be a mix of tastes and preferences for wall color right now. Which is GREAT! Too much fun.

My favorite EK colors? Gosh, that's a toughie. I'll try to keep it short! :-) I love Cognac. Have that throughout most of my lower floor. Bronze in my kitchen looks awesome with my stainless steel appliances. I put Tuscan Sun in a bathroom with a periwinkle/lime/orange shower curtain and I love that color too. Have Slate going up in my powder room with a Ralph Lauren silver metallic ceiling - waiting for the boys to go back to school so I can finish that.

Magnolia, Grand Teton Clay, Shrimp, and Tulip Leaves were a bit scary to the homeowners as they went up, but all ended up loving their colors once the painting was finished. Shrimp is a gorgeous coral color, has a slight nod of golden at certain angles.

Berry Red is hands down my favorite red out there -- it is the perfect red, perfectly warm, yet perfectly cool all at the same time -- how I don't know. When people talk about red as a neutral, I kind of roll my eyes. But with the Berry I can actually see it being a neutral because it is complex and so diverse. Used it in an open floor plan with SW's Latte - just yummy.

Mushroom is in the ultimate neutral category for me. It's one of those go to colors that seems to work in the most challenging lighting conditions and/or for the most challenging client who is hesistent, unsure, afraid. It's a safe color that isn't boring. Soooo classy with white trim!

EK has an old color called Cornsilk Blue that I swear is the most beautiful color of blue I have ever seen. I WILL find some way to use this color! :-) I just don't know how yet.

NOTES:

NB on EK Cognac -- also seen in a post on rugs (search on area rug, red, pillow, scalloped, french).
