"It's the color of afternoon light — that end-of-the-day moment when it feels warm and mellow and everything has a glow. I'm thinking some beautiful house on the Mediterranean, and we're sitting outside and eating figs with a bottle of white wine." -Sara Bengur Pictured, Donald Kaufman Color Collection's DKC-30
SWEDISH PAINT COLORS - Donald Kaufman Color DKC-6. "Blue can be cold or cloying, but this captures the feeling of a Swedish sky at the summer solstice. There's a luminous brightness, an almost silvery sheen. This paint has more pigments in it than the typical brands, and each reflects a different color so it changes with the light throughout the day." —Jayne Michaels
Choosing paint is can be a big undertaking, but my cabinetry paint guide will make the process a lot easier. I've picked several options in blues, grays, greens, whites and black for you to pick from. This should simplify the task and hopefully the decision process will be fun.
Borrowed Light: calm, relaxed, and serene, this airy blue that's got enough gray in it to maintain a certain neutrality. You can put it with purple, brown, dark green — pretty much anything. It feels as if you've taken the roof off the room and the sky and the clouds have mixed together. FARROW & BALL BORROWED LIGHT 235
