Bancha Paint Updates
Yay Bancha Green. Let me sing your praises. You have just enough yellow to keep yourself sophisticated, yet enough blue to remain appetizing…dare I say scrumptious. Today, I want to give you a sneak peek at this slightly masculine, earthy, and classically groovy shade of green. While we are at it, I can suggest a color combo or two that really make Bancha Green pop!
Week 1 | Week 2 You are here | Week 3 | Week 4 | Week 5 | Week 6
What is the ORC?
In case you missed it, this room is being completed as part of the One Room Challenge. Thanks to Linda for her massive organizational effort of this event and I can’t wait to see the reveals at the end of the 8 weeks.
Even more fun? Apartment Therapy will be the media sponsor this season.
Before Bancha Green
As far as “Before shots” go, this is admittedly one of the prettiest I’ve been dealt…In fact, I imagine that the most color adverse of you will prefer this lovely shade of white…
But for those of you feeling risky, here’s an “AFTER”….
After Bancha Green
And by “After” I actually mean “Progress” since there is only a 1st coat on the top half of the wall, but you get the idea.
I have to be real with you. I don’t love EVERY shade of green. There is an entire range of “Army greens” that I truly just don’t find attractive. In my opinion, however, Bancha has enough richness and depth to avoid all of those miliarty camouflage.
I want to show you some images I’ve captured recently snapped to show you how the room seems to change, depending on the angle and time of day.
In case you are wondering, the color of the McGuire chair is Rangwali and it was painstakingly refinished by Ronni Logan, my business partner who you will hear more about in the next week or two.
If bubblebum purple/pink isn’t your thing, here is a vintage bench to check out. The yellows and brown sing with the Bancha and make it feel decidedly more MCM.
Can’t wait to hear your thoughts on Bancha Green below.
Thanks so much for joining me on this fun progress shot. Don’t forget to check out the other participants, and I’ll be excited to show you how we are layering the furniture soon!
Wow, I love this beautiful green! It looks fab with the pop of pink as well as the yellow chair. Can’t wait to see the reveal!
I have bancha green in my hallway. It is truely a gorgeous and diverse colour x
Jewel, this Bancha Green paint is indeed gorgeous – who makes it?
Very excited to follow along with another one of your fabulous One Room Challenges. This fall, I’m right there with you transforming my own Dining Room and Butler’s Pantry, (and close by in Great Falls, VA too)!
Cheers to Fab Interiors,
I love this shade of green…..I’m with you on the olive drabs from the army greens…..not my style….but I have a question…..
A recent home magazine decorator suggested that in a bedroom, especially one with natural woods in it, you must paint the ceiling the same color as the walls to give it a continuity and accent the woods instead of jarring the eye with the white ceiling. Could I get your take on this. I chose a cool Jade for my bedroom but am having second thoughts. I love this shade of green that you have shown us. Thanks. BT
Hi Beverly! Thanks and I completely agree with the trend of bathing a room in the same color. It gives the illusion of taller ceilings and feels so enveloping. Having said that, it is still a little trendy. I figure that worst case scenario, I might need to paint trim back to white in a few years. 🙂
Thanks Justine- I’ll go check out your post! Bench is a Farrow and Ball color, but we had it color matched in Benjamin Moore.
Oh fun! It really is a gorgeous mix! Have you seen the new Farrow and Ball color release? So many that I want to try!
Thanks Lindsey! Ronni Logan did a fantastic job on that little chair!
