Moss Green, Petal Pink, Olive

We’re accustomed to the colors of nature, says Ashcraft, so using them on walls is less chancy than you might think—even when they’re strong. “This palette is a bit English and old-fashioned—and swiped right out of a garden,” she says. “Rich greens, with a big pink bloom on top.” To lighten up saturated moss walls, the soft ceiling color is also used on the upper trim, creating a cheerful canopy. An earthy dark gray-green on windows and baseboards complements the moss: “You can’t go wrong mixing most greens—just look outside.” Paint: walls, Oregano; ceiling, Pink Innocence; trim, Mohegan Sage: each from $36 a gallon, benjaminmoore.com for stores.
