Brand: Ralph Lauren VM99

For some reason, these dark, green-grey colors are in the ether lately, and I never get tired of them. In this instance in particular they offer one reason to dispense with the notion that Super-White is the only color in which to display paintings or works of art...

In the spirit of trying new things, I have a "before" photo of this room also, just so you can what's what. And I'll also continue my recent trend of showing more than one view of the same project.

Another interesting contradiction here is the use of this color with Mid-Century Modern furniture. Several of the pieces shown here are from the 50s and 60s, and it's a refreshing change to see something like Master Room instead of cupcake colors or "Butterfield-8 Blue" that are so often chosen by rote.

Lastly, I'm told that this color shifts from green to brown to grey depending on the light or time of day. That keeps me on my toes, and I think it's a good thing.
