We all chuckle at some of the names our paint colors have. Some make sense and some are just way out there. Today I thought I’d have some fun and “start my own line” of colors that I see on a daily basis but don’t officially exist anywhere. The colors may be similar to some but the names have been changed. Here’s what I came up with. Enjoy.
Perpetual Blue: The blue that is always found in just about everyone’s home and it never goes away. Is a pretty blue and guaranteed to be around forever.
Here we have the “Dreaded Orange” as in the dreaded orange kitchen that you always see me writing about. It’s the orange floor and the orange wood stain that you find in so many homes that just take over your color scheme. Great color but not in a wood stain.
Band-Aid. Also known as “Pinky Beige”. Now this color has a very, very bad reputation but when designed properly, can be stunning, tricky but stunning. I actually have it in my home and it even gave me a run for my money.
Green Dream. This is such a great green! It’s not like a sage, pea green or an old fashioned Kelly. It’s one of my favorites.
Tube of Toothpaste. Speaking of greens, here’s one that’s really a pretty color but really frightens people because it reminds them of toothpaste.
Baby’s First Deposit. Use your imagination on this one. Decent color but when it reminds you of something stinky, it really doesn’t matter how great the color is.
Love this color and it’s a really popular choice for a Master bedroom. Variations of this to a lighter choice for the main wall or a darker accent color for the ceiling. This is a hottie in the bedroom.
Everybody say “awe” because this color is that cute for a nursery. It’s great for a boy a girl or if you just can’t decide what you want. Also known as celery. Highly recommend this for baby’s first color.
It’s hard to find the right pink. It can be too much like bubble gum or barely there. Big Girl Little Girl is a pink that you can grow into.
Now on the side of an actual color palette if I had to design one it would be very close to this. Since I spent the first 28 years of my life on Long Island, I know these colors well thus the love for all my coastal posts.
Some colors are a cross between Nautical and Coastal which this is. Great color palette for the home and these are designed to be mixed and matched throughout the house.
