BENJAMIN MOORE HANCOCK GREEN HC-117: "This is one of those great 18th-century French greens. It could be the silk on Madame de Pompadour's dress. Green, when it doesn't go too yellow or too blue, is the complete neutral. I can't think of a color it wouldn't work with. Great with red. Absolutely fabulous with aubergine or chocolate brown. I love it in an entrance hall because then you can jump off in any color direction for the other rooms."
