Pale ochre walls

"After" shot.
What I started with. Plaster not sheetrock walls.

Residue from previous paint jobs.
Talked with customer about what color to use.
Based on artwork and fabric already in room it
seemed that a dull ochre was called for. Could not find a color chip that was really even close.
None of the fabrics in the room had what I had in mind. I began repairs on the wall. A piece of  plaster came off revealing the very first color used in this 1920's house. It was dead on for what we needed. You see here the result.
Cleaned up wall sconces and did touch-up with bronze metallic and van dyke glaze matching to original work.
