Farrow & Ball Carriage Green


I'm still stuck on Canadian designer Michael Angus and now his office with these gorgeous green walls - Farrow & Ball Carriage Green 94.  This first appeared in House & Home Condos 2009 special issue, photography by Michael Graydon.  Do you have any dark green walls in your home?  I think I'd like some...
(p.s. - just realized the post I did yesterday on his apartment was a duplicate of one I did in 2010!)

This is absolutely beautiful.
I have had green rooms but do not have one currently. I say go for it.

Oh, I was trying to remember how I learned about the video and now I know! Glad it was your blog. That is a beautiful shade of green. No green rooms in my house, but maybe someday if I have a home office. Are you going to give it a try?

I really like deep greens in a classic sort of setting like this. It makes me rethink my aversion to the popular color. It would make for a very cozy space.

I have to rethink my original dislike of green (only like green in the outdoors) this deep shade is gorgeous!

Oh, I was wondering where I'd seen the video before! Glad it was from your blog. That is a gorgeous shade of green. No green rooms at my house, but maybe if I had a home office or library....Are you going to give it a go?

I love how it has an old world library look to it, but so spiffy at the same time.

I'd love to do a dark room in my house but not sure which one, and/or how to would affect the overall flow of the house. I almost think it needs to be a room that has views to light rooms beyond. I think it's effective when dark walls are covered with lots of artwork to lighten them up.

You know, when we bought this house, it was all forest green (and pink!). I was happy to paint it all over in neutrals and blues but I had precisely that same reaction as you when I saw his office. I went looking for the colour in the source guide! Imagine - dark green! Funny how our tastes change and evolve but also how nice a bit of colour is in a world of neutrals. By the way, when I described your style as "clean" yesterday I knew it was not the right word and then thought about what Michael said about his style and "tailored" reflected more what I meant about your look!

I'd say this post was worthy of featuring twice! I have always been drawn towards greens and this hue is making me rethink my plans for dark grey walls. Happy New Year to you!

Carla Aston said...

That is a fabulous color. So rich. Love the art wall too!

Karen Albert said...

I have a teal study/ office...it has more blue in it though; almost a peacock.

All the best in the New Year ahead!

There's a great English library photo in that same F & B photo that I have floating around in a post on green somewhere - Always an amazing color with art and books!

Everything seems so much more important against such a rich background! A few houses ago, we used dark green on the walls of our windowless basement office. That is still one of my very favorite rooms, because of its cozy, warm feeling.

I like the green, but more than anything I want to sit at that desk and write a letter.

Michele-
Happy Fifth Anniversary! You have always been such a great blogging friend, and I won't forget that you added my blog to your blogroll when I first started posting.
This office is gorgeous. Pinned.
Happy New Year!

I love that green, almost black. That would be really cool in a library or study.

Happy New Year, Michele!!! Wishing you all good things in the year to come!
