This Old House: The Farmhouse at Emerson Green

An Olympic Design Collaboration

We teamed up with This Old House to design some truly inspired rooms for their 1,900 square-foot Idea House at Emerson Green. With Olympic® ONE® Interior Paint used throughout the project, we’ve highlighted 4 rooms we know you’ll absolutely love. Check out our ground-breaking collaboration below and find out how you can bring these colours and products into your own home. 

The Study

Walls: Jamaican Dream, Semi-gloss
Trim/Ceiling: Jamaican Dream, Eggshell

Using semi-gloss on the cabinets highlights them as an architectural element: the ceiling’s eggshell finish helps it recede.

The Girl's Room

Walls: Rockabye Baby, Eggshell
Ceiling: Bleeding Heart, Eggshell

For visual impact, the walls in the girls’ bedroom are painted pale petal pink and the ceiling is an intense shade of the same color, both inspired by the vibrant bedlinens.


The Guest Bedroom

Walls: Idyllic Isle, Eggshell
Ceiling/Trim: Pacific Pearl, Eggshell

The guest bedroom’s turquoise walls match the pink bedroom’s ceiling in intensity, an intentional choice to balance the second-floor palette.


The Mudroom

Cubbies: Parachute, Semi-gloss
Wall: Shark, Eggshell

The mudroom’s citrusy green built-in cubbies and cushioned bench say, “Stop and stow your stuff!” to anyone coming or going.
