I am notified that the painters will begin on Monday. In honor of the anticipated unfurrowing of my brow, I give you my best attempt at depicting the colors selected. Snatching squares of the colors from the Benjamin Moore website and elsewhere was unsuccessful.
Even on my own computer, adjusted to within an inch of my life, they didn't look right. By "right", I mean that they didn't look like the biggish 8X11 cardboards I painted with my little sample cans to check out the colors. So, what you see above is an indoor, sunny-day no-flash photo of those test cardboards. They look pretty close to the real thing on my computer, but we are likely all calibrated differently, so who knows how close they are on yours?
One advantage of this ambiguity may be that if you think they look awful, you will perhaps attribute the problem to this technical difficulty ?I really do not know why they are so blurry, I was not trying to be artistic, they are only cropped and otherwise unadjusted.
The top color is "Cottonballs", for all trim, semi-gloss. Then, Tapestry Beige (the living room), "Timothy Straw" (the guest bedroom) "Stuart Gold" (the dining room and the back wall of the living room bookcases, which are otherwise trim color), and "Nottingham Green"(my bedroom, much of this color appears in my Chinese bedroom rug).
