Get The Look: 15 Paints And Products Used In John Lyle’s Color-Filled Home

In the cover story of aspire design and home magazine’s spring issue, we dove into the surprising, enigmatic, and color-rich home of John Lyle. He shares with us that when he set about composing his home design, he began with neutral colors. But then as he got into it… “That was to be the direction,” he recalls. “But it quickly evolved – or devolved – from there.” Whatever your perspective, you won’t question Lyle when he notes the rooms “are certainly no shrinking violet.”

Take a look at some of the products Lyle utilized for the project here:

Entry:

The entry hall sets the tone, with walls painted a deeply saturated Arsenic green from Farrow & Ball, the floor, a custom-blended French blue. “I wanted a ‘pow,’ not something I’ve seen everywhere else,” Lyle explains.

Living Room:

Lyle began sedately enough in the living room by wrapping the walls in a beige silk and painting the ceiling in a darker, but still neutral, lacquered shade. The furnishings were monochromatic, save for a blue leather chair he designed. The only hint of flamboyance was the blue floor, but it peeked out discreetly from around a tame custom rug.

Primary Bedroom:

Throughout the primary suite, burlap swathes adjacent walls trimmed in Drawing Room blue around a Churlish green floor, both from Farrow & Ball. Lyle designed the Crackle fire screen, bronze Klismos chair and lacquered linen cabinet.
