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.

Split pea

Thousands of colors. Thousands of names.


  1. We painted our house "Happy Tune".

  2. Remember we had to make up names for paints in 5th grade?

  3. you remember what yours was?

  4. I dunno but it was a language arts project.
