The first thing that I do is look at the entire house...as you want the hues and intensity to coordinate. As you can see by her floor plan its pretty much an open one. I thought I would share what the colors look like in an actual room rather than just on a swatch ....these rooms are not the actual rooms that we are painting rather examples of rooms painted in the colors that we choose.
The first room we did was the dinning room - I picked out Farrow and Ball Cream #44 - Her colors in surrounding area's are golds and browns - This is a classic colour based only on the addition of yellow ochre and a little lamp black. - Mid Tone undercoat..
The next bedroom featured blues and browns....a bit more of a country feel with cottage furniture we picked out Benjamin and Moore HC 23 which coordinates beautiful with both summer and winter bedding in this room.
Finally the bathroom upstairs - Love Love this color - It is called Tea Light #471
