Bits & Pieces: East-Facing Rooms

Benjamin Moore Weston Flax HC-5

“Up here in Minnesota you see a lot of this flax color at harvest time. It has yellow as well as a bit of greenish tone, that crosses over between those two colors in an unusual way. The yellowness of the sun makes it look bright in the morning, but as the day goes on it sort of softens down yet still keeps that nice, warm feeling. I see it in a kitchen or a family room or a bedroom.  It’s so neutral that it could handle itself pretty much anywhere.

What to do in an East-facing room? This suggestion is from Tom Gunkleman, established Minneapolis designer. His response and 10 others are found in the April issue of House Beautiful’s monthly Color column.
