As you are probably aware, we are repainting Trout Towers. I've borrowed several of your oversized paint samples and am pretty close to making my color decisions.
There's just one problem.
Semolina, which I had chosen for the hall, is really more the color of a manilla envelope. I wanted something a little richer and less utilitarian. So I went back to my big book of paint chips and found the color I want.
It is the color I want, but I cannot bring myself to paint my hallway Nacho Cheese. I just can't. Yes, it is the color of Nacho Cheese. You get points for authenticity. But you did not call my original choice Manilla Envelope or Goldenrod Copy Paper so there is clearly some room for artistic freedom in the naming department.
I'm thinking Elephant Blanket Brocade or Tuscan Piazza Sunflower. They have sunflowers in Tuscan piazzas, right? I can understand why you wouldn't want to call it that if they don't have sunflowers in Tuscan piazzas. I understand that you have standards to uphold. Standards like Tulsa Twilight and Roasted Sesame Seed.
So, who went off the clock between the namings of Roasted Sesame Seed and Nacho Cheese? Is it specifically for man-caves and tv rooms? With bean bag chairs, shag carpet and unidentified smells?
I am trying to create a certain je ne sais quoi here at Trout Towers that does not involve the painting of team logos in my hall. I am relying on your paint to make it happen. Your paint which, I might remind you, is called Aura. Do you see the disconnect? Nacho Cheese Aura is a stain, not a paint.
I rest my case.
Also, New Hope Gray is an oxymoron.
