Benjamin Moore Tarrytown Green HC-134 may be in the Historic Collection but there's nothing old fashioned about this rich shade.
Tarrytown Green can be described as a deep pine green with hints of blue and a dash of gray. It lends itself to creating relaxing spaces accented with leather, wood and brass. Think old English cottage or cozy library.
With an LRV (Light Reflective Value) of 9.71 Tarrytown Green definitely packs a punch but still has a softness that feels grown up and chic.
In south facing spaces or rooms with a lot of natural light it will appear more soft hunter green than blue. n north facing rooms without a lot of natural light, the blue undertones of Tarrytown Green will come through appearing almost a dark teal.
On woodwork, trim, cabinets or door pair Tarrytown Green with soft whites like Benjamin Moore White Dove - a soft cream white with a hint of gray or Steam, still creamy but with even more gray. For pops of color scatter in touches of blush, taupe, mustard or navy. Think velvet sofas and drapes!
I love how cozy and relaxing this nursery feels!
It's also beautiful in a grown up space. I love how it adds just the right pop of color to this bedroom paired with Benjamin Moore Cloud White and warm wood accents.
I love using dark colors in small spaces like powder rooms. What do you think of this bathroom in Tarrytown Green?
Tarrytown Green is also a great choice for front doors, shutters or trim - especially paired with brick or wood exteriors.
TIP: Darker colors can require multiple coats for full coverage. If you are making a big color change (for example paint a white room Tarrytown Green) choose a higher quality paint for better coverage. It may cost a little more but you will get the job done faster in less coats so you can enjoy your space faster.
Want to see if Tarrytown Green will work in your space? The best way to find the right color for you home is to try a sample before making a commitment. Remember that lighting has a huge effect on how we see color. TIP: To get the best sense of the color paint a LARGE swatch in your space OR pick up a peel & stick sample from Samplize. They are made with two coats of real paint for accuracy and won't damage your walls.
