more about paint

After the success of painting my office 'Arsenic', you can't keep me away from Farrow and Ball's colors.   So now the bedroom has turned 'Orangery' - yes, F&B did, indeed, inherit the old National Trust color palette.   I'm not sure that Orangeries actually were this shade - I'm sure the one in Holland Park, which is the only one I can claim to have spent any time in, is largely white with, perhaps, some pale green.   But this is a warm and thoroughly welcoming tone (especially in the evening light), and it's held together - in color-scheme terms - by a mid-grey stripe between it and the cream tent-like ceiling.   If all days are going to be as busy as the last two have been, it will be great to be able to retreat into a golden cave.
