The doors to our house are painted Farrow & Ball Mouse’s Back. Yup, you read that right, Mouse’s Back:
It’s a beautiful sophisticated color. It’s also safe. It doesn’t stick its neck out and scream “HEY! Come here! Look at me! You come up here NOW! You must see what’s here!” Veins strainin’, eyes buggin’, a real wild color.
These wild screamin’ doors will not be overlooked, and that’s what I like about them even if I couldn’t put these colors on my house …

There, take that!
If someone gave you a brush, and a pail of wild paint, and offered you a dare, what would you do?
