A Whole Different Hue


Here I am looking at a paint sample on the ceiling of a remodeling project I’ve started here in Short Hills. The painter needs my approval, but I don’t like the look of it. It’s too yellow, too harsh. What looks right in the studio can take on a whole different hue on site, especially with a Tudor. There is much dark wood and smallish windows, so paint really needs to make the space glow. Then there’s the door hardware. At some point most of the original pewter hinges and locks were replaced with brass. The hardware must match and be as close as possible to the original. The authenticity of even the smallest fittings creates a sense of integrity that’s vital to the design.
