Chris is on a mission to paint our bedroom and install baseboards while the room is still empty from having the oak floor sanded and refinished. We're painting it grey - "Manhattan Mist", actually. I've been wondering lately if we would have painted our home different colours if they'd had different names. Is our living room beige because "Pecan Sandie" just sounded good, or do we really like beige walls that much? Our dining room is "Seven Seas" blue, and Madeline's room is "Wildflower Honey" yellow with "Teal Bayou" accents.
We have a brochure for Farrow & Ball paint at home - the weirdest paint colour names I've ever heard of! We could have painted our home in "Smoked Trout", "Dead Salmon", or "Lichen".
