color me wonderful
i'm a color freak. that's right, i said it, color FREAK. i'm always planning which colors to paint so-and-so and dropping in benjamin moore, just for fun. so, even though i don't have a new apt to paint yet, i've already planned out some potential colors. benny moore of course, since he's my fav.
i'm making this year all about dark, dark navy blue for me. the darker the better. inspired by a domino mag shoot, i've fallen for "soot" (2129-20). i'd love to pair it with fresh turquoise and some bright white for a fantastic POP. but if dark blue won't do, i've also found a gorgeous, where-have-you-been-all-my-life color called "tawny day lilly" (2012-10) that is guaranteed to wake you up this summer.
since you have to have something fresh and springy in the home, i've decided to go chartreuse crazy. ac isn't so nuts about it, but i am. to go with the bowls and platters below, i found "citron" (2021-30) and "chartreuse" (2024-10). bright, poppy, wonderful.
if none of these are your things, check out "summer basket green" (2040-40), a lovely, calming green that would blend nicely to any decor without standing out too too much. and if you're looking for a nice subtle gray, don't forget the tried and true "chelsea gray" (hc-168) that i had on my walls until i moved. it's the PERFECT gray.
so, pop on by your local paint store and grab yourself some summer color (or try benjamin moore's personal color viewer online). everything better in color.
