#41 – David and Alli’s Dill Pickle
Name: David and Alli
Location: Downtown, NYC
Type: Rented 1-bedroom apt.
Why I use color:
2 Good color tips:
1. Colors named after fruits and vegetables give you something else to talk about when people come over. They look and say “Oh, I like your green.” To which we respond, “It’s Dill Pickle.” Deeeeelicious.
2. Oh, just paint it on. What’s the worst that can happen? You paint over it? I mean, really.
2 good color resources:
1. Benjamin Moore’s Mini Paint Samples. The easiest way to decide if a color will work in your room is to paint it, and if they’re willing to make a sample of the color you like, it’ll probably be ok. And they’re only 3 bucks. A bargain!
2. Other people’s badly painted apartments. You may not know what colors you do want, but it’s very easy to discover what colors you don’t.
