Favourite colour (so far!) for lounge walls. Card Room Green by Farrow & Ball. This colour is named after the study-like rooms much favoured in the Victorian period and is unapologetic in its masculine feel. It really comes alive when contrasted with a warm neutral like Fawn or Stony Ground, as used in Victorian homes, but feels more powerful and contemporary when used with no contrasts at all. Dark Tones Undercoat.
