Survey: Do You Choose Paint Based On Its Name?

Survey: Do You Choose Paint Based On Its Name?

Some of our favorite paint colors are Milk Moustache, Salt Water and Vintage. We've also used Chit Chat and Old Pickup Blue. And one of our friends recently picked out C2's Final Straw for a room in her home after a particularly bad breakup. Which made us ask — is anyone else picking (or at least narrowing down) paint colors based on their names?

We'd like to meet the person who has the fun "naming paint colors" job

Recently at a dinner party, one of our friends asked for help choosing a bedroom color between the similar colors Arctic Gray and Quiet Moments. With only a cursory look at the chips, we all voted for Quiet Moments (with Erin's husband voting for a third color, Frisky). We just couldn't imagine sleeping in a room called Arctic Gray, although the color was really nice. What about you, Apartment Therapy readers, do you choose paint colors based on their names? What names are your favorites?
