Even though I really need to go to bed, I was feeling inspired from earlier today and wanted to share. On our way home from our weekend getaway we stopped and visited Malabar Farm. Malabar Farm is a state park nestled in the hills of Pleasant that was built in 1939 by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Louis Bromfield and was his home until his death in 1956. The farmhouse has been preserved just as Bromfield left it in the 1950's. I love house tours, so I was captivated by the styling and decorations of the farmhouse. One thing I noticed immediately was the use of a particular shade of green in almost all of the rooms. When I commented about it, our tour guide told me that Bromfield had lived in Paris ,before moving back to the states and purchasing Malabar Farm, and that this particular shade of "Paris Green" was really popular in France at the time.
I am completely smitten. I love Paris Green! I am not sure what I can paint this color, but I assure you I will find something!
