Name: Sweet Pear
Brand: Benjamin Moore
Mr. Anthony Demma of New York has a sweet little apartment in the Village, appointed with an Italian flair. We chose Sweet Pear for the walls, which complements the gold elements in his furnishings without taking over the room.
I tend to like golden-greens and greeny-golds more than I like either green or yellow. Note the hand-painted floor (by the author), based on the pattern of the marble floor in the Pantheon.
