I like to pick paint colors based on their names.

we need a step ladder

After hours of comparing swatches,these are the ones we brought home. I like to keep things neutral but with a little more oomph than that stark apartment white. I’m a connoisseur of grays.  I got a bit nervous about the bedroom looking jungle green, but after a second coat it is indeed the murky dark teal I had in mind; once I get the furniture put back in place maybe I’ll show you that too.  The idea of even having a bedroom that can be a different color than the rest of the apartment is a bit of an adjustment after living in a studio. (Look at that hard working boy getting all the places I can’t reach.)
