x I’m sharing the LRV (light reflective value) for each color because it’s important to consider how light or dark a color is when making a decision. For reference, pitch black is 0 and bright white is 100.
x I’m usually drawn to mid-tone paint colors that have an LRV between 35-65 because they’re not too dark and not too bright, but that’s just my personal preference.
x When it comes to color matching, you can color match anywhere but understand that the color will not look 100% the same when you’re not buying it directly from the brand – especially if you’re trying to color match Farrow and Ball.
x Encycolorpedia is my bible when trying to choose a paint color. Searching for a color will tell you everything you need to know – color formula, LRV, close-matching paints from other brands, and more.
x Always swatch on a white piece of paper/poster board before committing. A paint color will look completely different in one room than another and depending on which way the sun is facing.
A refreshing muted chartreuse with obvious yellow undertones.
If you held a gun to my head and told me I had to paint my entire house one color, French Gray would be it.
It’s the color I chose for our main bath and it’s the most perfect mid tone grayish-green I’ve ever seen. It can also appear cool depending on the light, but I think Mizzle has cooler undertones than French Gray.
This color is similar to CP Avocado Toast but is a smidge darker with a slightly cooler feel. Farrow & Ball describes it as a cheerful green and I could not agree more.
One of Clare Paint’s most popular colors with over 182 five-star reviews, this rich forest green is a show stopper
ANOTHER DARK GREEN RUNNER-UP…
I absolutely love every single detail in Renovation Husband’s parlor, where they used Colonial Verdigris.
