I took some pictures of the hallway at work that we’re going to paint, just so you all would have a clearer idea of what I am working with. We are a residential center for children with behavioural and mental health issues, so the hallway gets a lot of traffic. We want something more on the warm and cheery side, rather than the historic and somber side. I’ve checked out some of the suggestions I’ve gotten and even have samples of some of them, but I am getting some push-back from the staff here.
Here are a couple of samples I’ve painted: from the left, there’s Silver Sage, Comical Coral, Willow and Butter Up. Funnily enough, Silver Sage is nearly identical to the colour on my office walls. Maybe that’s why I am so fond of it.Today at lunch, I saw a paint store across from where we were eating and ran over and collected two more cards. Unfortunately, the smallest sample they could make was a gallon!
I am leaning towards a yellow on the green side. I also liked the suggestion from House of B&C of Ciara Yellow by Farrow & Ball, but that range of paint is a little too expensive for a poor little non-profit. Any other ideas?
