"Middle Earth" Green

BEFORE David's RoomAFTER David's Room

When we first asked David, who turns 14 in two weeks, about the color for his room, we were relieved to hear, "Green, like my eyes!" We gave him some color chips and booklets containing shades of green. Apparently, he must think his eyes are a bright shade of lime because the name of his favorite color was Temptation, which is so bright it couldn't tempt us! A friend of Tammy's in cyberspace wrote that her 15-year-old son picked nearly the exact color and painted his room last week--they are brave. We settled for a deeper, darker shade called Northern Glen with Green Garland trim to complement a White Scallion ceiling. After the contractors did the first round of painting his room, David approved of the new colors because it looks like Middle Earth!
