Color is a wonderful thing

I know, I know. We're total geeks. Just painting the shop bathroom that fun color of green (Sweet Vibrations) had us smiling for days. Smiling so much, that our main upstairs office is now the same color! And with a couple of new window shades, we feel like we're in a brand new place! (I watch too many DIY home shows, I know.)

Then, because the other upstairs rooms are white, they started to look pretty boring. Not that I have anything against white. But you'd step into the office, and WOW, perk right up. And then step into the classroom, or shipping, and BLAH, sink back down. Had to fix that.
I mean, we're around color all day and it invigorates us. So white walls? Gotta go.

So my good friend Benji Moore and I decided to spread some more color love around the building. The classroom/receiving room/photo studio is now Goldfinch, and it's awesome.
Just need to touch up the window trim and get a new rug.And shipping, since it's a room filled with hustle and bustle, needs a little calming color. So we've chosen Florida Keys Blue... My guess is we'll be fighting to get into that room when it's done.

Ouuu the Florida keys blue is going to be beautiful!!! Do you mind sharing what the green is? I fell in love with it when I saw it at the shop. I would love to use it in my cake studio :o)

The green is Benjamin Moore Sweet Vibrations, I think it's #391. Go for it!
