Naming Paint – Day 23

Wild grape
Presidential suite

Powdered snow
Amethyst cream

Tart apple
Pepper grass
Violet fields

Garden pansy
Isle of Pines

Palace purple
Scotch lassie
February frost

Deep orchid
Palm breeze
Lilac rhapsody

Swiss coffee
Iced mauve

This one was inspired by Lowe’s paint sample chips. I love looking at all the different names for colors, and they often (for marketing purposes) have a pleasant ring to them, so I thought I’d try to arrange some of the ones I’ve collected into a pleasing rhythm and cadence.
