I'm rather partial to Key Lime myself

moonscape sounds like it would make you sleep faster...

Well, I was going to say go for the bonnie cream but Dawn has made me very nervous and self conscience now!

Hee, bonnie cream. I'd say go with the Monet moonrise.

Tough decision.

Those names make me feel like I just barfed up a flock of canaries. Pretty though.

Hmm i can't see them well enough to make a suggestion, but i'd say something light yellow, kind of a not so bright pastel type yellow.

Ooh yeah that was Ms. Difranco i was referring to, i've seen her like 5 times now. this was my first show at all here in Texas so it was even better since it was her.

ooh yeah where's my pic for the site? ;)

I think someone might have said this but I am assuming by the yellow and greens that you will not know the baby's sex before it is born? I would go with a green over a yellow. Pear sounds about right. Enjoy.

P.S. I love the color of the wall now!

Yikes!! A plethora of names for colors that a diabetic would need an insulin shot to read LOL!

I'm partial to the blue wall myself.

My dad always liked that his living room was painted "bleached blonde". T'was quite nice...

You know, if you start making special preparations for the baby, the kid is going to grow up so spoiled. He/she is going to expect something new for everything. Before you know it, they'll be wanting you to feed them every single day! You've got to nip this in the bud while you can.

The problem with paint names is they make them sound so yummy. And then you're disappointed because it's just paint.

Our living room is bananna creme and sweet maple, and our kitchen is spiced butternut. Mmmmmm....

Good luck with the paint choices - if you're scared you're going to pick the wrong color, get the pint sized can and paint a piece of posterboard and hang it on the wall. It helps you see if you really like that color or not.

How about a nice white?

Posted by: Jade at February 7, 2005 10:44 AM

would you believe it's my job to come up with them?

Just be careful, yellow rooms supposedly make babies fussy.

I do like 'piss yellow' myself. A bit obvious, I know, but since the descriptive field of the color seems so 'run together' I thought I'd just....
