Color Naming Guy...

There is hardly a day that goes by at my job where I am not digging through a paint deck. Often enough I come across a color and color name that puzzles me. I thought it would be fun to show a few colors and their names, then re-name them to something more appropriate...
 Name: Confident Yellow
Should be: Surface of the Sun

 Name: Derbyshire
Should be: It's no longer 1993

Name: Eye Catching
Should be: Baby Pea Vomit

 Name: Neighborly Peach
Should be: I live in Miami

Name: Rose Colored
Should be: It's still not 1993

Name: Stop
Should be: My Eyes are on Fire


Name: Chartruese
Should be: What were you thinking?

Next time I will do perfectly lovely colors with awful names...

I want the job as a color naming guy for sure!

Have a great weekend!

LOL! I actually quite like some of those colours, especially the yellow one and the red. Not together though...I am not decorating McDonalds!

I just hate chartreuse in general. On walls - on clothes. It's just so yuck. All the way around. Bleh.

I like your names much better than the originals! I think that paint chips need to take a hint from nail polish names... usually those are so much more fun :o) Hope you have a great weekend!
