2131-30 Lead Gray

This is such a classic look and easy to achieve, especially for small spaces. Did you know that dark colors in a small room will blur the boundaries and look even bigger?!

We love this idea for a library or den, even a living room. It’s simple, everything is painted out the same colour. Shelves, mantel on fireplace, walls, trim/doors.

“Blues can dominate and overpower a room, but not Newburyport Blue HC-115. It is subtle yet strong enough to anchor a room or even the exterior of a house. I love the results I have achieved in intimate cozy room walls where contrasting art and drapes stand out elegantly.” —Moises Esquenazi
