"Everyone — men and women alike — loves this color. It's a pale blue with a lot of green in it, and it's a little dirty, which makes it more complex than the typical pastel.

People walk in and say, 'This is how I want my house to feel.'" —Cathy Kincaid Farrow & Ball Estate Emulsion Pale Powder 204
