SHERWIN-WILLIAMS/DURON, COLORS OF HISTORIC CHARLESTON VERDITER BLUE DCR078 NRH: "This is an intense 18th-century blue-green with a great history. They used to make it by pouring acids on copper and using the verdigris as the pigment for the paint. A living room would be killer with this on the walls, dead-white trim, and mahogany or black-painted furniture." -Ralph Harvard
Instead of becoming wasted dead space, this kitchen corner uses lovely floating wood shelves to add additional storage. Accessories on the shelves are kept within a similar color palette to avoid a cluttered look.
