Putty in Your Hands

Putty is (and has been) a hit in the interior design world: It's warm and cool, brown and gray and green and red, color and neutral, contemporary and rustic; all rolled into one. At the last architecture firm I worked at before leaving for a dream project of my own - my son - it seemed every client was beating down the door shouting for "Putty!". So, what does it look like?

These are a few examples of the wondrous color. It's such an all-things-for-all-people type hue that we wonder whether it's perfect or whether it's for commitment-phobes who can't decide on a more definitive color. What do you think? Are you a fan of putty?
