plum island

plum island. sounds exotic right? well, it is. straight from the prestigious art collection of none other than mr. benjamin moore cabot stains. actually, it's the color of the stain stanley is using to cover the raw cedar boards on our barn. plum's not a traditional barn-red, not brick, not purple, not brown, but a combination of the latter two. and it's almost all done.

the cedar siding on the main house are getting a few coats of cape hatteras, another benjamin moore painstaking selection. its not tan, not gray, not taupe, but a very light, neutral combination of all three, and we picked it because among all the similar hues, this one has the slightest, subtle tinge that matches the plum island.
