Alex Vertikoff's Photos

In stark contrast to the ugly pictures outside, I have been given permission to share the photographs Alex Vertikoff took of our house back in July 2013. They turned out really beautiful!
I'm a little embarrassed about this one. I wasn't expecting him to include the sewing room in the background so I didn't have it totally cleaned up. The rainbow of threads is pretty though. LOL

  1. Stunning.

    What is the name of the green you used on the wall? I'm having a hard time finding one that isn't too blue, too yellow, or too dark. Plus, I can see that it works well with my favorite color....purple.

    1. Ruskin Room Green from Sherwin Williams. One of my favorite colors.

    2. Are you sure that's Ruskin Room Green - SW 0042? On their site it looks more brownish. What's on your wall looks great -- on their site not so much. I guess I can buy a sample and try!

    3. Yes, it is definitely Ruskin Room green, SW0042. We used it all over our house and it doesn't look as brown as at their website. I really like it, but it works well with our decor.

    4. Wow their site shows it as a dark taupe. I am going to buy a qt to try out. Did you use satin or eggshell?

    5. We used flat paint (or whatever they call it). It doesn't have any gloss to it. It is possible they've changed the formula since we put it on in 2011, but we've been very happy with it.

  2. All of the colors in the house are from this palette: http://www.sherwin-williams.com/home-builders/color/find-and-explore-colors/color-collections/historic-palettes/interior-historic-colors/arts-and-crafts/

  3. Has it really been that long since he took the photos? Wow. I wondered if I would ever get to see them. Cool.

    1. Those chairs were made by a company called Bentwood Furniture. They are located in Grants Pass. It looks like they've changed their name to Rogue Valley Furniture.
