Or maybe it was George Washington’s “Little Dining Room” at Mount Vernon that planted the seed.
Somehow, I’ve had the idea of a green dining room lodged in the back of my brain for a few years now. And it’s finally coming to the surface.
The Mount Vernon color is available. It’s called, fittingly, Small Dining Room Green (MV3), and it’s part of Fine Paints of Europe’s Mount Vernon collection. (Pardon me: the Mount Vernon Estate of Colours ;) ) So that’s an idea. Talk about BOLD.
Including Yeabridge Green.
It might just be the perfect green. It, like all Farrow & Ball colors, has incredible depth. So on the color card it looks like a mid-tone. On walls, however, it can look much more saturated.
Gorgeous, right? I think it has the right balance of yellow and blue. That sounds dumb: yellow and blue equals green. But greens skew one way or the other, and Yeabridge Green has the vibrancy and modernity of a yellow-green tempered by the maturity of blue.
In other words, It’s bold without being insane.
My dining room right now is Farrow & Ball’s Light Blue.
And I have to say, I love it.
But change is good, right? Just, maybe, don’t tell my husband. Not quite yet.
