Blue Slate

Blue Slate
25-21 Pratt & Lambert

“Great gray for anything from a library to a bathroom, where it looks extra-crisp against white tiles or towels of almost any color.”

 

Raccoon Fur

Raccoon Fur
2126-20 Benjamin Moore

“Deep, rich gray-brown makes dining room walls look delicious. Don’t be afraid to go dark—it’s so cozy.”

 

Glass Green

Glass Green
1214 Laura Ashley

“Perfect turquoise—bold and fun in a bathroom or bedroom. For drama, bring in red accessories. Or use in a high-gloss finish to repaint old furniture.”

 

Open Sky

Open Sky
MS283 Martha Stewart

“Pretty hue traditionally used on porch ceilings. For a great effect, bring it inside—indoor ceilings want to look like the sky, too.”
