From Staged to Authentic: A Midcentury Modern Rambler

Posted by Emily Lauderback on

With the colorful art and not to be missed fuzzy turquoise sofa, this home's palette was developed from the original woodwork and architectural finishes of this mid-century rambler. The neutral paint colors were chosen to create a serene, yet warm environment.

We have to point out the effect of metamerism so beautifully captured in the photo of the kitchen. The paint color in that room is the same on the walls and the ceiling. Yet, the camera captured the color as MUCH more blue where it is right next to the cabinetry. Why? The warmth of the wood (perhaps classified as orange) really brings its complement (blue) forward in the paint color. Metamerism at its best: colors' appearance changes in relation to the other colors adjacent. Magic!
