Color to re-consider : toothpaste green
There's a color that keeps jumping out at me....it reminds me of old fashioned Aim toothpaste. It's fresher than turquoise,greener than 'tiffany box', and way cooler than sage. It's got a definite vintage vibe. I'm diggin' it.
When looking at my Ben Moore fandeck, it's somewhere in the 589-599 series, like "Spring Fresh-591" or "Brookdale Gardens-599"
What do y'all think? "Good"? or "Uh-no".
This is a little greener than Aim toothpaste, but I still like it. Maybe this would be considered 'pistachio'.
the chair is spot on. Not sure I love the wall color with the chair though.
A couple of lighter versions follow, one with a tinge of gray. If you are thinking of painting a whole room in this color, you might want to consider graying it up a smidge. When I was in college, the former occupant of my bedroom had painted it a color most accurately described as 'the bottom of a swimming pool. In Miami. In 1945." It hurt my eyes to be in there. A touch of gray would have upped my GPA, that's for sure.
