Warm Goldenrod



Colors Used: Paint was matched to fabric swatches using Dunn Edwards and Ralph Lauren paints.



Color Tip: The best way to test a color is to paint color a yard square in the area desired, then use white or gray to lighten it or shade it down. To keep the same color, just thinner, use non color paint to extend the color.

Warm beige paint was captured by five gallons beige colors, all close, but not right. By adding all five to a five gallon container and adding a bit of sepia, the color came out perfect. A warm light glazed brick color was sponged on, and a gold line was added to the thin molding on the fireplace wall for niches.
