I agree completely - and white accents really pop. I love these photos.

Does country living state what color paint that is? Thanks.

Really nice in pictures, but I have to think that it also is probably really dark at times. Real life is so different than a picture... I love dark colors but they tend towards gloomy in low light conditions.

To Anon: here is the link to all the images http://www.countryliving.com/homes/house-tours/country-cottage-1109

I did not see a source for the paint, but in image 18 is says Ralph Lauren's Mercer paint. Hope that helps!

The more I see them, the more I'm warming up to dark walls :)

That wall color is amazing! It's so rich and satiny that it looks like actual melted chocolate!
