The picture is kind of dark but Gulliford Green is more of a green with a tint of grey which I thought would be nice for the kitchen...
I chose both of these colors from the Benjamin Moore Historical Colors palette. According to the Benjamin Moore website, "This palette of 174 time-honored colors is our most popular. Inspired by the colors found in 18th- and 19th-century U.S. architecture, these classic, inviting hues continue to serve us well today." I don't know about you, but I think that screams Capitol Hill rowhouse don't you think?
The thing about the Benjamin Moore Historical Colors is that they are timeless and traditional, however, they are a bit muted. And...through no fault other than my own, I just picked shades of green for two of the rooms in our house. Hopefully it won't be green overkill. As much as I love the look of the historical colors, I'll try to mix it up with some new colors. For a house that was
built in the 1900s, I still gotta keep it fresh for the current era. J
*We named our third bedroom/den the pink room because it was painted pink and it used to be the room of the daugher of the previous owners.
