Visiting friends in the Berkshires this weekend, we were fortunate to be staying in a house that had been part of a Shaker settlement until the late 19th century.

Lived in by one family since then, they have preserved a great deal of the detailing and color that typified Shaker design.

As we have looked all over for good color cues for painting floors and wall in this style, this is a great resource for inspiration (and simplicity). (Thanks, Charles & Julie!) MGR
