It is diluted at the paint store by 25 %. , just tell them you would like it at 75% of its saturation.

What is the porch ceiling color?
   Comment   June 29, 2014

What Houzz contributors are saying:

"This is a great area," Mitchell says. "Just up the block is a quaint shopping area with coffee shops and restaurants, and getting into Portland is an easy drive, as well as bikeable." The neighborhood, which dates back to the late 1800s, has a mix of homes in Victorian and Craftsman styles. While historical guidelines weren't imposed upon them, the homeowners, designers and builders made heroic efforts to be true to the original house's period architecture and details. There was one minor change to the facade: A small side porch was enclosed to create an entry vestibule, complete with special drawers for dog equipment, such as leashes. This kind of porch enclosure is very common on buildings like this one.At the same time, the renovations made the home more energy efficient. The original lap siding, shingles and windows had to be removed, but they were carefully replicated, and the home was insulated to code.
