Moorish Red  PAPERS & PAINTS LTD. MOORISH RED HC55: "You can see the ground-up pigment in this paint, which gives it depth and a little iridescence. It's not flat, like American paints. All those 18th-century Robert Adam rooms were done this way. Red is an action color, but this has a lot of coral and umber, which softens it. It conjures up Greek vases and the walls of Knossos. It has the weight of antiquity. I believe in the future, but I still like an edge of the past." -David Easton

Vert de Terre by Farrow & Ball "This is the furry, fuzzy green of lamb's ears. Very herbal. It's rich without being too saturated, and makes a great backdrop for mahogany, silver, or ivory. It's the color of my fantasy room — a book-lined great ballroom with a lit Polonaise in the middle of the limestone floor and orange trees in tubs. A pavilion in the forest." -Charlotte Mos

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

Benjamin Moore's Soft Fern 2144-40 ~ "For me, the most appealing colors in summer are not hot but cool. You don't need to be reminded of the sun and heat — you're in it. What you want is a cool breeze through the pine trees, like this chalky gray green." -Frank Roop
