My Color Profile....

Here's a fun little quiz you can take to find your color profile! It's by Pratt & Lambert paints! You can find the link on Angela's Peony Patch!

I must say, my results are spot on. I lean towards traditional with a touch of the exotic and Raffia perfectly exemplifies that.

I love that there are tools out there like this, because I'm a total ditz when it comes to actually picking out paints. In fact, I'm reminded of the "gold" color my husband and I picked out for our home office. It turned out more of a #2 pencil yellow. It was hideous and is now slated for our laundry room (because every laundry room needs a ray of sunshine to make the chore enjoyable). Our office promptly got re-painted a grey-ish blue that suits the calm we were looking for.

I have no idea what we were thinking with the gold.... But it does give me a good indication why we haven't painted any other walls in our house, minus the baby's room.
Have fun!

Raffia is a collection of neutrals and interesting greens that signify a timeless appreciation of diversity. A person drawn to this palette appreciates texture and the importance of tactility in all surfaces. They wish for a sophisticated environment that is also casual. They seek a balance with nature and time.
