    Thanks for your reply Larina Kase Interior Design. I appreciate you taking the time to answer. I'm thinking of going lighter. Winds Breathe on the walls but need a ceiling color for condo. White shaker kitchen cabinets and a light wood look tile floor and pompei quartz Misterio counter top. Tough decisions. I admire the ability the you designers have in choosing color! Nice work.

    That color is nice. November Rain and Classic Grey are other warm greys to test. Pick your 3 favorite colors and test them in 20 x 20 inch squares (2-3 coats) on each wall and the right tone will emerge. Good luck. Your kitchen sounds so pretty!

    Wall color is beautiful in this picture but it looks really dark for our condo that only has a window on the north side and slider on the south side. Can you recommend something similar in tone but lighter?

    Sure- you could have Benjamin Moore mix half white with this (Revere Pewter) or try Classic Grey

    Yes this holds its color with bright light and in my opinion is better with bright light. It's Benjamin Moore Revere Pewter

  • d3gilmore
    Wow! I have that color in my bathroom! I didn't think it would work in my loft with bright all day sun but maybe I'll test it! I have a stairwell with BM Northern Cliffs grey that will be a part of my loft as well and it's hard to find a warm neutral that will compliment it.

    The couch is from Turner from Pottery Barn and we went with the Grand size which is 104.5". They have other lengths available too.

    It is red oak and it's been there since the 1950s so the polyurethane has yellowed a bit.

    So sorry I missed this question. This is from a rug warehouse (with remnants). It's all wool and we had it bound so it's exactly the right size. You could do the same thing at any rug store. Good luck!

    The walls are Benjamin Moore Revere Pewter. The trim and ceilings were already painted the white color so I don't know what it is exactly.

Aniline. Pure-aniline or full-aniline leathers show the natural surface of the leather, imperfections and all. They do not have any additional pigments or protectants on the surface, so you’ll probably see variations in color. Because there’s no protective coating, this type of leather has the softest feel. But it’s also more susceptible to scratching, staining and fading.

Anne Colby added this to How to Clean Leather FurnitureDec 6, 2016

Unprotected leather. Aniline leather — also called pure aniline, full aniline or unfinished leather — has a soft, luxurious feel. The leather is dyed through with aniline dye but has no surface pigment color added. It has little or no protective coating other than perhaps a dirt-resistant treatment. Natural surface grains and markings may be seen on the leather, which can develop a patina. Aniline leather is more sensitive to staining than protected leather and typically is pricier as well. Other types of aniline leather include pull-up leather, which is injected with oils and waxes, and nubuck leather, which has been distressed or buffed to create a soft, velvety feel.Hess leather sofa: Room & Board

1. Comfortable and CasualDesigner: Larina Kase Location: Devon, PennsylvaniaSize: 330 square feet (30.6 square meters); 15 by 22 feet (1.5 by 6.7 meters)Homeowners’ request: Casual, comfortable and child-friendly. Also, they wanted a yellowish stone fireplace surround replaced. The main challenges for designer Larina Kase were bringing in adequate artificial lighting and figuring out how to arrange the furniture in the long, rectangular room, which has three points of entry. Special features: Large drum chandelier. Large, hardworking coffee table. Extra-long (105-inch) leather sofa. Why the design works: “This room design is a balance of opposites,” Kase says. “Soft versus hard edges, modern versus classic, organic versus industrial, form versus function, masculine versus feminine, light versus dark values, organic versus geometric shapes. I find that the balance of opposites adds interest in a space.”Designer secret: “I love the tip from Marie Kondo’s book, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, to ask whether an object brings you joy,” Kase says. “We found some fun, whimsical objects, like the little wood bird on the glass bookshelf, that brought joy. One of their daughters named the bird and likes to play with it.”
