I’ve been feeling kind of ansy in my office as of late, which leads me to believe it is high time for a decor change. Sometimes I can satisfy this urge for change with nothing more than an hour spent moving furniture and objets d’art. This time, however, I think nothing less than a new paint job will suffice. It hit me as I was thumbing through the latest issue of House Beautiful and saw the most alluring color of pink on the walls of one of the homes profiled. (Hint: Paint Style from Benjamin Moore is also a great place to find awesome paint colors.)
Have you ever found that? The perfect color, I mean. That color that just jumps out and sings to you? I was lucky in that I found such a color in the pages of a home decor rag, so all I had to do was read the caption to find out what I was looking at. In the real world, when one sees the perfect color, it is often on a flower or someone’s wall or in a work of art that cannot be easily transported to the nearest wall of paint chips. All is not lost, however, for those willing to drop $299 on the nifty gadget above. The Benjamin Moore Pocket Palette matches colors from, well, almost anything to the closest color in the Benjamin Moore color system. You can scan anything from that gorgeous blood orange in your fruit bowl to your favorite evening gown. Cost aside, how neat is that?
Oh, and that color I mentioned earlier? Razzle Dazzle!
