I'm going to try and replicate this. Love the colors. Just purchased Benjamin Moore Chameleon #526 it looks very similar and for the thick stripe I'm using Medieval Times # 530. still undecided about the thin brown stripe....may go a little darker like an expresso.

I always advise people that they should not start with the paint colors when decorating a room, because it's much more difficult to match other decorating elements to paint colors such as fabrics, artwork and area rugs. Where as paint colors can be matched to anything. The paint colors can also look different in a room depending on lighting, both natural and electric. Photos can be great starting points for deciding the color scheme that appeals to you, however, photographs typically don't depict the actual paint colors. Consequently, it is dangerous to say you want the exact paint colors that you see in a photo. What else are you putting in the room that has green in it? Artwork, area rugs and fabrics are great starting points for matching up paint colors, and you definitely want to have a design plan before you start painting color.

I see where you give advice about the process of picking paint but I want to replicate this room. Can you please give me the EXACT name of the paint and brand that you used?

Thank you!
