The Colonial period did not feature the bright greens we know today. While homes of the wealthy featured brilliant green paints made from rare sources, most greens were fabricated with alternate means for a less vivid finish. Most often green was created by either mixing yellow ochre with soot or oxidizing copper. The results were more often a pea soup color, as compared to their vivid verdant contemporaries. The alcove in this kitchen features Boardman, a dark green that shares those same muted tones.
