Recently I was giving color advice to a young friend…

…..she and her boyfriend have just purchased their first  home and are nesting.

She showed me her LIVING ROOM color…a beautiful Benjamin Moore color called..

BENJAMIN MOORE HILLSBOROUGH BEIGE

Unfamiliar territory…so far……IN MY OWN HOME  I have not used many “earth tones” …I have steered clear of them as they seem to have been used too often unimaginatively and without color….but NO LONGER is that the case….NOW  I  confess that am quite smitten with THEM…especially when they are  balanced with LOTS of white ……touches of black …… hints of gold …..  and subtle contrasts and pops of surprising colors like sky blue,  pink and red….ummmmmm…I tell ya…love it!

So gorgeous in it’s simplicity…it is not a color that I would want to do all over the place…I am afraid things would get muddy and dark…but I love it…the way I love grasscloth…in just the right amounts…so rich and beautiful .

HERE IS A LOVELY CAMEL BATHROOM…WITH WHITE TILE….AND TRIM…BEAUTIFUL!

I am contemplating using it in my dining room….half way…perhaps with a wainscoting…when we get around to repairing the crumbling walls.

(added 1/2016) I AM ADDING ONE MORE! My cousin just painted the entirety of the downstairs her Alexandria Home in this color and it is gorgeous…I mean THE BOMB and I may have to do a whole blog post on this color alone!
