Decisions, decisions...

We need to start painting the walls this weekend. Which means I have to decide exactly what colours & where they'll go. I say "I", meaning just me, because Oliver is "chromatically challenged". (I think that would be the PC term for colourblind.) Subtle differences in colours that have a red or green tint are lost on him. Eggplant vs. navy, pink vs. beige, mossy green vs. grey, lilac vs. sky blue: these distinctions mean nothing to him. Thus, I must take on the heavy mantle of responsibility for the colours of our new place.

Woohoo! Carte blanche!

Anyway, I'm thinking turquoise/teal-ish, wasabi/lime & lighter variations on that theme. To anchor things, we'll have black or dark brown picture frames & furniture. Can't have the whole place looking like a cell from an undersea shot of The Little Mermaid.

Even in the text, I can't see the pink. I can only differentiate the lilac, because it is darker than the blue.
