Pursuing Paint 2

With our new house being re-painted today, paint colors are on my mind.  I have planned on painting a few more rooms once we move in.  First, I would love to paint the recessed ceiling in our dining room a Ralph Lauren metallic paint color.  These are some options I have been admiring:

Palace Silver

Silver Grey


Iron Gate

The next room I would like to tackle is the study.  I am still dreaming up what color scheme I would like to go with.  But I do know that I would like to paint our powder bathroom a dark shade.  Perhaps, Benjamin Moore Old Navy:

I first fell in love with this hue when I saw it at the gym adjoining the spa at the Jonathan Adler designed Parker Hotel in Palm Springs, and they so kindly e-mailed me the color.  I have not had the same luck trying to discover the shade of yellow on the doors of the Viceroy Palm Springs.  (I attempted to find out when I wanted to paint my wishbone chairs yellow).  Does anyone have any firsthand experience with any of these colors?


  1. loving the palace grey. benjamin moore is the best!

  2. The navy shade is beautiful. :)

  3. I am also planning to use navy blue and yellow for my master bedroom. Hope you find the right colors you wanted.

    Happy Monday, Kate!
