(BM Alexandria Beige)
My new project is doing my husband's office/den . Nothing has been really done to it for the past 3 years, so I think its time for him to have a proper place to work in. I started painting today, and hopefully will be done by tomorrow eve. Of course I chose Benjamin Moore paint, wouldnt use any other paint. My choices  in colors were Rattan, Northampton Putty, and  Alexandria Beige, all in benjamin moore   paint. To my surprise unlike the pics I saw on the internet, Rattan ended up being an almost a true Gold color. I was expecting green really. I new I was not going for that , it is still a nice rich color but not the look I was going for. It was between the Beige and the Putty. I choose the Northampton Putty because it was really nice against the coffee colored roman bamboo blinds. Those were newly put up and a steal I think for 39.99 each. They were ordered through sears online and very nicely done. The quality is unlike the typical bamboo blinds you find out there. They are lined to the street, and have a nice valance. Anyway, Alexandria Beige was nice as well, but with the overall look I as trying to accomplish ,the putty won. I love the color
