Paint Ponder: Tallow

I love the look of a light buttery room.  This one takes the cake.   Farrow and Ball’s Tallow 203. It adds a just a hint of warm color, while allowing the party take off from other pieces in your room….

Paint Ponder: Clunch

“After we bought the place we were flying up from Florida to Atlanta, and as we came through the clouds I said, ‘This is what I want to wake up to every morning, a feeling of lightness and airiness, like we’re floating on a meringue.’ Polished woods and shots of gold — the gilt of a picture frame, the dull brass of a chandelier — warm the palette up and bring it to life.” , stated Phoebe Howard on her light and airy office painted in Farrow & Ball Clunch No. 2009.  I can’t agree more.  It might just be the perfect neutral.

Paint Ponder: Lily of the Valley

Lily of the Valley, Benjamin Moore’s 905, doesn’t sounds like a paint name, but it’s a great one for those of you looking for a very warm cream.  States designer Alessandra Branca in Elle Decor,   “I found this color more than 20 years ago when I wanted a really great, warm white for trim, and it has been my standby ever since. It works well in rooms that get a lot of light and also in those that need it. I especially love this color for kitchens because it is warmer than your typical kitchen white.”  And who wants to be typical?
