Mere Green 219 - Farrow & Ball "We've all had our fill of ruby, sapphire, and emerald. This is like the missing jewel tone we only get in peacock feathers. It's rich and still playful — it can be a formal or sort of decadent color, and it looks beautiful with accents of white lacquer or dark wood.” —Celerie Kemble

BENJAMIN MOORE ICEBERG 2122-50: "This is a lovely pale blue, so faint that it brings the sky into the room. It's neither cold nor too blue. Instead, it simply adds a crisp background for a calming sleep or a restful read. Raw woven silks in blues or soft whites react well to this shade. Surprisingly, to get the most out of a blue-and-white scheme, every room needs a serious hit of black. I suggest glossy doors or ebonized furniture." -Steven Gambrel   - HouseBeautiful.com

PALE POWDER 204 — FARROW & BALL  "Like a true blonde — and those who want to be one — this pale blue-green is complex and enchanting. Throughout the day, it changes from robin's-egg blue to gray-green, radiating a subtle glow that makes both people and furnishings look like the best versions of themselves. Pair it with moss-green velvet upholstery, modern art, and black-lacquer chinoiserie." — SARAH BARTHOLOMEW

FARROW & BALL CLAYDON BLUE 87: "My library gets no light, so I took advantage of the disadvantage and painted it this deep blue-green. It's a restful color, kind of an ancient color. You see it in the medieval tapestries at the Cluny Museum. Now everybody gravitates to my dark, cozy room. And the color works with anything — Oriental rugs, African pillows, Islamic textiles." -Stephanie Stokes
