Kristie's "Light & Happy" Room

Room for Color Contest

Inspiration for my palette:
It's a 1939 stone cottage with Tudor Revival influences. The exterior is rather dark, with lots of huge trees and lots of shade. I wanted to keep the interior as light and happy as possible, and that minty jade color is in keeping with the period of the home.
Colors used in my room
Benjamin Moore Prescott Green HC-140 and White Dove, but closest Sherwin William match would be Slow Green SW6456 and Alabaster SW7008.

Shades of blue-green (from mint to sapphire), light blues to turquoise, and butter yellow.
Tips for using color successfully
Listen to the house! Use cleaner, cooler paint colors in homes with lots of white trim, dark wood floors, and gray/white/black finishes like marble and quartz. Use muted, warmer paint colors in homes with materials like stone, granite, and carpeting.
