BENJAMIN MOORE OVERCAST OC-43: "I think about this as celadon or blanc de Chine. It's the shade of water in a bath, of the pale early morning sky. When you take a gander at it on a chip it's not extremely energizing, but rather once it's up on the dividers it reflects itself and winds up wealthier. Obviously, it's not only the shading on the divider but rather how you grow that thought into the carpet and the upholstery. You need unobtrusive minor departure from a similar tone, to make it quieting." - Barbara Barry

MURALO PAINTS DAYDREAM P380: "I was searching for a shading that was as legit as E.B. White and as rousing as Carl Sandburg, and it took me ages to discover. I experienced numerous that were excessively solid or excessively dull, excessively female or excessively manly.
