Paint Sample Names

Things I Like #1

You know what I'm talking about. Those little color swatches they have on display at places like Home Depot and Lowes, the ones that cover the wall in a wide variety of hues, helping you decide what shade to paint your living room or you bedroom or bathroom. And every single color has a name.

Something about this is just so delighting to me. I love to read all the names and think about the person who came up with them. Imagine it; there is somebody out there whose job it is to look at a color and pick out a creative title for it.

Thousands of colors. Thousands of names.
