its a custom mix. I do not have the formula. I recommend you show this image to a colorist at a paint supplier and having them make you up a few samples for your review.

Would this color work well in a room with little natural light? How would you suggest adjusting? I like the brass bed and have a similar one, I like the contrast between the wall color and the bed, but am afraid it won't look great in my basement apartment with no natural light.

They are hand-blown glass baubles which have an opening in the side of them into which you can insert a votive. In this case I used battery operated votives for safety reasons. I sourced the glass baubles from a florist.

galejeweldean - How tall are your ceiling? I've never painted a ceiling a dark color/matching the walls. Does it make room appear smaller?

Kevin Gray Interiors
The ceiling in this space is approximately 10 feet high. This dark colour was only on the border of the ceiling while the central (actually lower) part of the ceiling was painted white. Painting a ceiling the same as the walls is good when you are looking for a way to make the room feel intimate. This can work in a bedroom, and also in a powder room. It depends very much on the overall style of your room and how all the other elements are working together. Don't rush to do so unless you are very confident. A suggestion is to start by painting your walls the darker colour, leaving the ceiling lighter. Live with it for a while and then if you think you can handle adding the drama of a darker ceiling, give it a try!

The painting is a mountain scene illustrated in a more contemporary fashion with a burst of red colour on a predominantly pale blue canvas. I cannot actually recall the name of the artist, but I do recall the gallery it came from. Please refer to the following link:

Your pics look really have an interest in colour I can tell from seeing your touches of aquamarine and the greenware, as well as the colorful fall display of squashes/gourds and florals. If your gut is telling you use touches of bright colours, then keep playing to your strength and do that. With regards to the antiques, unless they are worthless I would suggest NOT throwing them out because they have such character; If they are not particularly valuable pieces I suggest you could try refinishing them using chalk paint..this would achieve your goal of doing a lighter finish and would give new life to the pieces.....there is a brand of chalk paint that would be perfect to finish the older pieces and its called Annie Sloan.
In order to give you more in-depth advice I would really need to have a better understanding of the layout of your home/relationship of one room to the next and direction each room faces, and a rough floor plan showing where your furniture currently is located and the exact pieces you do and do not wish to keep. I can help you further by doing an email consultation. If you are interested, please provide me your email address and I will email you more details of what I require from you, and my rate sheet with options. My business email address is:

Thanks for asking. That tables is a belgian antique farmhouse table which was available through Uniquities Architectural Antiques, located in Calgary, Canada.
Since it is an antique they will not have another one exactly like it, but they are always getting new things brought in from France, Belgium, the UK and beyond. They will ship anywhere.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Shawn Gauthier added this to Easy Ways to Dress Up Your Home for Fall
You can even keep your branches up throughout the holidays: Add ornaments in December to keep your arrangement seasonally festive.
Use rich color inspired by travels.Have you ever come home from a trip and suddenly felt your home to be lacking oomph? I know I have. If the rich colors of a vacation spot have left a lasting impression on you, why not consider bringing a bit of their spirit into your home? You may not want to completely overhaul your space, but even painting a small study or alcove in a vibrant shade can make a big impact.
