For real?  Flora?  Cayenne??

 

My MALE fiance has been using the term “seafoam” since we got engaged wayyyyyyyy too much (he wants the dog’s bow tie to be seafoam!)

Haha! That’s pretty much me, too. Three times this week I’ve encounted a question about my shower dress for tomorrow – “What’s the color of your dress?” “Dark blue” “Like, what kind of dark blue?” “Dark… blue?”

I felt that way when planning our wedding, too. I wanted Texas A&M maroon.

Sales lady: “So do you want Cranberry, Burgundy, etc etc?”

Me: “Maroon. Like my tshirt.”

I’m surprised to see maroon on that chart! I usually had to pick a fancier name for it!

@AnaA:  Thats funny but I take issue with the names not corresponding to my extensive Crayola crayon collection. (Which is of course how ALL colors should be identified) :p

@AnaA:  lol.  sadly I can identify all these colours and more.  I plead professional liability though.  I’m a designer, it’s part of my job to know my colours 🙂

@AnaA:  LOL as an art major who took loads of color theory.. where’s the rest of them?? Hahaha

Also.. my favorite color is teal. I need people to understand that it is NOT blue, NOR is it green!!

@AnaA:  I don’t get QUITE that into the color differentiation, but I DO make a distintion between say lemon yellow and banana yellow. 😛

My FI is a graphic designer, and so this is switched around for us! He’s the one who names the exact shades.

@Brielle:  LOL!

My favorite part about this chart is the sea foam is spelled “Seam Foam,” which just does not sound nice.
