Does Your Gold Paint Color Look Like Baby Poo?

This is so horrible I’m sorry! I kid you not when these words came out of the mouths of so many people so often I just had to write about it. Oh and do you know how hard it is to keep a straight face when one of my clients say this? It’s not easy!

You know the color I’m taking about. It’s the golds that have just a little too much green and brown in them and resemble the contents of a baby’s diaper just a little too much. Is this gross? YES but this is the wording that I’ve heard so many people describe certain golds that I had to talk about it.

Without mentioning the names of these colors, you know, just in case you have them on your walls, I’ll just show you the colors that I’m taking about. See what I mean? They are not horrible colors but I hate that people are not choosing these colors because they resemble baby poo.

So what do we do? Well like I said, you certainly don’t want to choose a color that reminds you of something unattractive so either you choose a brighter, cleaner gold or just go right to yellow. Just keep it clean :-)

  1. I actually love the above colors and are drawn to green-golds. My master bedroom is painted in Valspar’s ‘Woodlawn Lewis Gold’. Both my husband and I love it.

  2. Haha! I want to do one of my rooms gold right now but that is what I am afraid of! :)
