Benjamin Moore Tarrytown Green (you complete me)

Do you like the wall color in this image from West Elm’s website? I love it. In fact, I love the whole room, which feels fresh, sophisticated and comfortable. But it’s the Benjamin Moore Tarrytown Green paint (HC-134) that now plagues my thoughts. I’d like to live with it for awhile, but I’m not sure where to try it. Painting the living room is a pain (corners and moldings galore), so I’d rather not use it as a lab. I’m planning to convert the guest bedroom into an office, but I’m not sure Tarrytown Green is the right hue for the smallish dark room. Maybe the dining room? What do you think about HC-134? Am I just a little punch drunk in love? Or does this color have staying power?

  1. I like it, the color says calm and sophisticated without being bland. The only thing is, its dangerously close to the “teal” of the 1990’s so what its paired with changes the look. I always think that dark colors like this need to be in rooms that have a ton of natural light and sometimes even just used on one wall. (although feature walls have maybe kind of passed?)

  2. Cherie’s got a point.

  3. You may paint my pantry if you like. It gets lots of light and has one wall begging for some Tarrytown. Also this color would go nicely with my new floor and backsplash.

  4. Hi, Tate! Go to your nearest Benjamin Moore paint center and ask if you can buy a 4 oz. container of the Tarrytown Green paint. Then go to your favorite craft store and buy a large sheet of white bristleboard (or Bristol board, or whatever they call it in your neck of the woods). Paint the board and move it from room to room in your place to see if you really like it. Your total cost for this experiment should be less than $10.00. You can try out almost any paint color this way.

    I have a sample called Denim Blue attached to my bedroom wall, and I know for sure this is what I will be putting on my walls. As soon as I get off my butt and get around to taking down a 60-inch wide well-stuffed modular bookcase, stripping off wallpaper, etc. that is …

    Hope your experiment is a success!
