Can you please reveal this stunning paint color and who makes it?
Beautiful!! Who makes the paint used and what is the color name please? Thank you!
Where is the painting from...the one above the leather sofa? Thanks!
I'm surprised this is a feature color. I bought a house and one of the rooms was painted this color-I could not wait to paint over it.
Would love to get the paint information as well, thanks very much!

built in bookcases and window seating

Paint the back only of a bookcase (watery aqua)
Painting the back of the bookshelves
The painted background behind the bookshelves
Hardwood floors replaced old, tired carpeting, and fresh paint gave the walls new life. Pale aqua paint at the rear of the bookcase creates a vibrant backdrop for an ever-growing collection of mementos. Wall paint: Muslin, Dunn-Edwards; accent wall paint: Opaline, Dunn-Edwards; leather chair: Cavett, Crate
