I love color. And now that we are (FINALLY) getting to the stage where we can make aesthetic choices after two years of structural work, I want to be bolder when it comes to incorporating it into new rooms. However, I am frequently overwhelmed by color choices. All those little paint chips. All of those choices. Argh.
Which is why I was in awe when we dropped by a Restoration Hardware store this weekend and I saw that they've added paint color shades to their already fab collection. Yowsa!
I'm always on the lookout for "vintage" looking shades of paint and they have it in spades! (I always think of vintage colors as having a kind of "ashy" undertone to them...there must be an official name for that somewhere.)
They hadn't gotten their paint chips in yet, but I am sooooo ready to do some more painting! Whoo! Hooo!
Then, I noticed that assistance with color coordination seems to be the prevailing trend for retailers this season. Behold, Pottery Barn's online Design Studio: Color Palette shopping feature.
Kind of like "Garanimals" for renovators. (Remember those? The kids clothing line where if you matched the "monkey tag" with another "monkey tag", you could be reasonably sure of not getting heckled in the fourth grade lunch line?)
Now, if they started coming out with a "Garanimals" CLOTHING line for adults, my life would be complete and I could leave decision overload behind me.
