Concord Green Home

2011 EcoHome Design Award Winner

Key to the successful design were the homeowner priorities of family health, energy performance, and optimizing the walk-to-town construction site. To maintain health and air quality, the home features a fresh air ventilation system with energy recovery, a whole house HEPA filtration system, radiant & radiator heating distribution, and low/no VOC materials. The home’s energy performance focuses on passive heating/cooling techniques, natural daylighting, an improved building envelope, and efficient mechanical systems, collectively achieving overall energy performance of 50% better than code. To address the site opportunities, the home utilizes a footprint that maximizes southern exposure in the rear while still capturing the park view in the front.

Perhaps, if the opportunity is right. Our typical projects are larger, but we do make some exceptions.

A satin or eggshell finish is usually preferable for walls, with a semi-gloss to gloss finish for trim.

Hi Mary. ;)
Finish on the walls is flat, with semi-gloss on the trim. Mythic's semi-gloss sheen is more like a satin in other lines.

I would love this paint color for our beach house on the Cape. Did you use a flat on the walls and a gloss on the trim?

Hi maryc4.

I did use flat on the walls - I always prefer a dead flat chalky finish for walls - and a semi-gloss on the trim. Some paint companies have semi-gloss finishes that are too shiny, and so I drop down to satin, but in Mythic, the sheen level is just right for trim.

Good luck!

Lisa

Paint is Mythic non-toxic paint throughout, but matched to one of my favorite creamy white colors from Benjamin Moore - Mayonnaise, OC-85.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Similarly, seating areas and built-ins were designed for the living room. "The furniture and what would be happening between the windows and walls was always part of the plans." A large mirror in the living room makes the space feel larger and reflects light and a view of the park.

Paint Hello kpaul. Yes, you are correct. I wanted to create a creamy white envelope that would allow the view and furnishings to be the focal points. I matched Benjamin Moore's OC-85 in Mythic Non-toxic paint, available online and locally at retailers such as Eco Home Center of New England, in Acton, MA. Thank you for your interest!
