Jeff and Paddy choose a soft green for the walls to bring the summery feel of nature indoors. With so many windows, the trim color is an important choice; they go with white—with a touch of yellow—to brighten the windows and lower the contrast with the walls. Latex paint is better for handling the expansion and contraction of wood around the windows. A hardwood floor warms up the room. For contrast with the soft green walls and white trim, the wicker furniture is painted the deep brown color of barbeque sauce. Semi-opaque screens on the windows allow some sunlight in. Cushions and throw pillows in green and brown, UV-resistant fabric tie the color scheme together, and yellow accents add punches of color.
Did You Know: Green is neither a cool or warm color; it's considered a neutral. Green gives a comforting, relaxing feeling. Use UV-resistant paint in sunny rooms to prevent fading.
