The client selected Edgecomb Grey by Benjamin Moore. It's a beautiful classic neutral that helps to set off the new crisp white trim of the built-ins and trim. We like how she re-styled her bookcases and mantel after the paint job was complete!
Comments from the homeowner:
"The fireplace and built-in paint was a dark cream that hadn't been touched in at least 25 years (maybe more!). A few years ago I decided to color-group books in order to brighten things up in there, but with the fresh, crisply white paint, I knew I had to do some serious editing. We are a big book family but ended up moving most of them to the next room over so we could lighten and brighten this space. The landscape had previously been over the couch, and I fell back in love with it in its new spot. I also swapped out a painting in the right corner for one of my own photographs."
