Historic paint colors for your home
The November issue of Country Living shows historic home colors from Benjamin Moore's Historic Colors line (page 149). These "reflect not only the natural pigments colonists worked with, but also how colors were perceived in earlier times: by candlelight; through small or heavily draped windows; browned by fire smoke and age." In other words, dark and dull, which I don't think was the colonist's goal.
