Star Tribune/Benjamin Moore's Cedar Green

Kim Yeager, Star Tribune, polled color experts, near and far, for their thoughts on colors that will be on your radar for 2010. One of Hirshfield’s many color experts, Kathy Basil, shared her opinions on Hirshfield’s favorite subject…color. Here is the link to “Swatch patrol.” Love the title.
