Green living room: Milk paint in historic Indiana home
The living area of the master bedroom of Wylie House, built in 1835. The walls are painted with milk paint from The Old Fashioned Milk Paint Company, using one part Snow White, 4 parts Marigold and 4 parts Tavern Green.

Wylie House was the home of Indiana University's first president, Andrew Wylie, and his family. Today the house is a historic museum recreating the Wylie home prior to 1860. The home is a blend of Federal and Georgian architecture styles, which is unusual for Midwestern houses built in that period.
