Painting the living room

JM is painting the living room. I am the assistant who does the taping. Isn't the tape a brilliant royal blue? The colour on the walls is so lovely. We have had it for 10 years and still love the way it changes from blue to grey to green depending on the weather, season and time of day. It is Benjamin Moore Collection eggshell alkyd enamel, Iced Marble #1578.
