The color is called Gray Tabby and I sealed it with minwaxs provincial stain. I measured and taped off the stripes onto the back with blue painters tape. Then after some heavy distressing, I applied a thick coat of stain. Im in love.
Designer says color is Benjamin Moore Lead Gray but looks nothing like the paint chip, comes out indigo blue. She used "high gloss" lacquer on this bookshelf wall, then wrapped the remaining three walls in same color but in an eggshell finish. Says the room is long and narrow and using the one bold color all the way around makes the room look twice as large. This room is used for media viewing and entertaining, and that the bold deep color provides great backdrop for that.
Warm friendly colors: orange, terracotta brick, brown, herbal menthol allow the paint to start playing more expressive. A beautiful tranquil combination is ideal for facades for cabinet furniture made of plastic or painted MDF, looks nice in the materials upholstery items of upholstered furniture.
