WALL: BM Pine Green in Aura (richer) DOOR: SW Real Red, semi-gloss. (good to: BM Jade Garden a deep watery teal) For energy added chartreuse & dynamic red. "think beyond "dark" "light" paint, & more about mood. Room is "light" if gets lots of light. If not, it's never going to be light. I prefer to bring in boldness & brightness with deeper wall color to keep it from getting too serious. Best advice - try to define what mood you want when selecting colors & use hues that support that mood.
One thing I especially appreciate about Sarah Richardson is her use of color and finishes. I am really enjoying how she brought color and a mix of finishes into this family home to give it a lot of zing and pizazz! And I love how she paired the red with gray in this family space!
