Messenger Bag

SW 7740

Living room painted Messenger Bag SW 7740.

Modern meets nostalgia in a space where olive green inspires laid-back style. 

We’re paying homage to the ‘70s with a color that’s as rich as the sound of vinyl. Messenger Bag’s olive hue creates a nostalgic backdrop, while energizing accents of yellow and blue give this palette a vibrant look that’s all about kicking back.

Style Influences

While bold color sets the scene, adding a mix of natural materials and tones through the furniture can instantly soften any living space into a dreamy lounge. Whether it’s a pair of rattan chairs or a mid-century modern sofa, these additions bring an updated take to retro style.

    Your new feature of seeing paint color in my home is truly an awesome helpmate.

  2. Please unsubscribe. I was unable to see this option on your site. I did purchase paint from Sherwin Williams, but do not need any at this time. Regards, Carol

  3. Uch, I dislike olive green . Drab and depressing color scheme. Maybe a good color to coat a chair or accent piece.

    • Those are both great options if Messenger Bag isn’t your typical color preference. It also looks nice on exterior trim!
