Similar to the colours that I am using in the salon. The doors are a little bright for me but I do like softer turquoises.
Note the painted lines punctuating the room at dado and picture rail height.
I have already blogged about painted skirtings and the tradition of picking out other details in paint rather than wood trim. see posts :-
Evidence of painted detail exists in several of our rooms at the French village house, and we are recreating similar detail where we have the appropriate room height-in the salon,the terrace bedroom and both staircases.
It’s somehow less grand than equivalent trims and mouldings, and as you know, I worked out a while back that this house has no pretensions to be grand.
