Hi John,

Glad you like it, I'd be happy to discuss this further and your project, do you have an architect on board already?

Thanks Patrick, you've obviously got some unique ideas. I'm doing my own with this house. Your slats are probably the first I've seen where lines didn't run perpendicular to the ceiling joist/ rafters; nice effect.
Truly, John

I would test the following greens (all Benjamin Moore): Great Barrington Green HC-122, Kennebunkport Green HC-123, Avon Green HC-126.

In my experience getting the "right" green is really hard...get creative if you need to and if you like a color but it's too light or dark considering adding more pigment or taking away pigment. Always test it on the wall though!

Even a colorful neon throw on a gray sofa is enough to contemporize the room.
