Jo’s Colours: Smoky Green CC-700
My newly retired clients are in the same situation as so many of us – the kids have moved out, in this case several provinces away – but their tired, old bedrooms have been left behind. It was easy to simply shut the door of this room and face the dated yellow walls and scarred wooden trim during the occasional visits.
We started with yellow-gold walls and wood trim that was in bad shape
After a couple of coats of Benjamin Moore Smoky Green CC-700 on the walls and Benjamin Moore Simply White OC-117 on the trim, we have a fresh new look and my clients’ are thrilled with this transformation.
Smoky Green is a chameleon colour that changes with the light and time of day. At times it has a blue-green hue and other times it reads as a lovely, dusky blue.
In an online Style at Home article, this designer states:
Don’t be fooled by the name. On a paint chip or in small quantities, SMOKY GREEN CC-700, can look green, but on walls it takes on a gorgeous robin’s egg blue tone. It’s relaxing and what I call a dirty kind of blue. I’d use a latex eggshell finish and paint a bathroom, bedroom or kitchen this colour.” Costantino D’Elia, designer, Toronto
