wow! what color is that?

midnight in NY BY BEHR “Putting up wood boards on a diagonal and painting the wall dark greenish gray gave my neutral dining room impact. It’s a shade that invites people to sit down and stay a while.” —Lindi Vanderschaaf, @love_create_celebrate, Grande Prairie, Alberta, Canada radiant sunrise BY DUNN-EDWARDS “To anyone who thinks ultrabright yellow is too much, check out how it funned up my home office alcove!
