(from March 2008 Living Etc)
I don't know, but I am pri-tee sure this is what my sofa looks like when she sneaks out at night to go party.
Isn't that just??....WOW! I mean, dude, that is one gutsy sofa. Each of those colors are just the perfect shade, they are the matriarchs of their color families, for sure.
Something about a particular color of blue and green that's really getting to me these days. Like this blue sofa-
(from Flea Market Style)
I'm thinking a Pantone #306 C (go here, choose "North American", "Paper" and type in 306 C to get the color).
Then there's a green that I'm liking these days too, Pantone #363 C. I to refer to it as Uniform Studio green, because when I saw this photo that's starting looking for a good green during the most mundane parts of my days.
I am so fickle about color. I like what I like, and that seems consistent (the blues, the greens, that sort of thing). But I have such a hard time making real commitments to color in anything...clothing, paint...whatever. The minute I go neutral I wish I'd picked something bright or bold. The minute I pick color I am worried I'll grow tired of it in a week. I'm thinking about all this mainly because I'm working on my studio this week. Its been 2 years since there was some real attention paid to this space, its high time. I will share my progress with you if you promise to keep me on task. You see, I really want to give it a coat of paint, whatever color that may end up being, and I tend to stare at unopened cans of paint like they will magically open up and paint themselves. It's never happened, but I keep trying.
Have a lovely day!
