"This is the color of putty — a rich taupe that wavers between green and gray. There's a rawness to it. It's a neutral with character. I used it on the island and the crown moldings. Surrounded by crisp white cabinetry, it grounds the space and makes it much warmer." —Amy Aidinis Hirsch Fine Paints of Europe Hollandlac G23120
From Hyphen Interiors: Anything on this strip at Sherwin Williams – SW7015- SW7020, or Repose Grey to Black Fox I love these greys because they are true greys; without leaning towards an awkward baby blue or an annoying twinge of green.
Black Blue "I like black in a small hallway. Clients think you're crazy at first, but it's very romantic. Do sconces or a chandelier on dimmers, because you don't want bright light flooding the walls. This is not lifeless, like some blacks. The blue in it makes it warmer. And art looks amazing against it. Would be even better with a black and white marble floor." -Elizabeth Bauer Farrow & Ball Black Blue 95
