The Right Color


Old houses are graced with the lovely patina of years. Draw from elegant aged materials like porcelain tubs and worn floors for subtle, neutral tones to build a quiet but stately palette. This postcard image of an old Federal-era house has been pinned on my studio bulletin board for years; I love the limestone building blocks and the tall, dark, and handsome windows. In this scheme I pulled pale grays and taupes for wall colors, extending the palette with linen upholstery fabrics and driftwood-colored floors.
