We can't think of color in our home without remembering the colors we unearthed from owners-gone-by. The oldest layer we uncovered during renovation of our home was the saturated green in the photo above...

It was painted straight onto plaster-on-brick and had layers and layers of drywall and paint over it. Try as we might, we can't picture our home with the original dark green paint color, though we've always thought it must have been beautiful with the woodwork (in a dusty old library sort of way).

Have you uncovered surprising colors behind your present-day decor? Please tell below.
