Someone asked me what were the names of the colors used in our front entry. We actually had the helpful handy-men at Home Depot color-match two Ralph Lauren paints for us. We used Behr, which we loved, went on so smooth and very thick. Since they technically have no names I am just posting the labels.
This is the lighter stripe that was layered on top.
And this was the darker base (thats a 4 slightly disguised by paint).

The phrase "living the life of Riley" was commonly used among Irish soldiery during WWI. The first known citation of the phrase used in context was a letter written by Private Walter J. Kennedy and published in The Syracuse Herald on June 29, 1918. The piece was entitled "Great Life, Writes Soldier at Camp":
"This is surely one great life. We call it the life of Riley. We are having fine eats, are in great detachment and the experience one gets is fine."
