Color Cues from an English Garden

From "The English Garden"

Warm, rosy pink is contrasted with a lavender tinged blue and slightly lemony white. A lush deep green compliments a bright yellow-green to mimic the play of multi-toned leaves. Create a “garden” room in your home by painting walls one color (like Jadite) and using the other fresh-picked hues in fabrics and accessories.

Sherwin Williams colors: Redbud 6312, Citrine 6714, Jadite 6459, Gleeful 6709, Windy Blue 6240
