  1. Heaven, I love this color. I wanted to go with darker in my ‘new’ old house, but it was built in 1786 and is very dark inside…so I stuck with taupes and yellows with one bold statement of a sort of greenish yellow in the dining room and master bedroom…well, we’ll see how long it is before I get the itch to change it. :)
