Paint Name Fun

Another side project I have on the go is finally painting the apartment we’ve lived in for 4 years. Matt said we should paint when we moved in, and I am finally ready to admit he was right. So we have had a lot of fun together looking at different colours, reading up on interior design, and choosing what to put on our walls.

 

Of course, people who invent colours can’t use the regular names for colours that I learned by reading crayons. If you thought taupe or cyan were weird names, just steer clear of paint stores or websites.

For your pleasure and amusement (as well as my own) I have invented a new system whereby you can choose what colour to paint your room, home, nails or dog. Simply take the word that corresponds with your month of birth and the word that corresponds with what day your birthday falls on – that’s your colour! All yours, a personal gift from me to you.

Enjoy.

OK, that’s pretty fun! Someone I know would be Frosted Fluff, and another is Secret Latte. Some of those paint names are something else, aren’t they?

I must never be referred to as Frosted Fluff!

Haha yes, I got way too much amusement out of coming up with the words and then laughing at the random combinations. I know a Jungle Serenade, and I wish I knew an Irish Cartwheel 😛
