colors

i'm not doing art at all ... 
i'm buying nobs and lights and fabric ... 
still cleaning and purging my junk so i can move into an uncluttered space .....like, not take all my clutter back with me ....
i'm visiting my renovation house every day (sometimes two and three times a day) to ooooh and aaaahhhhhh the progress .... 
i should be moving back in less than a month ... 
hopefully they'll remember to turn the water on before then ... i dream about that ... spending the summer in the happy house ... with no water .... but at least i'm dreaming about the happy house .... 
the painters have been going to town ... the library is painted this turquoise.... benjamin moore fairy tale blue .....

the dining room is this green .... benjamin moore rosemary green
the family room is this yellow .... (or maybe not ... it's too muddy here...but you get the idea ) ... benjamin moore sunshine ..... i might have chosen it JUST for the name!
the halls are this yellow .... benjamin moore highlighter yellow .... bright! 

and they haven't painted the kitchen yet .... but this is what i matched it to more or less..... ben moore calypso orange ..... 

if you're looking for a time waster .. go to the benjamin moore virtual fan deck of colors ... it's pretty groovy ... you can see my colors and find some of you own faves .....

It's a sign when you like the color AND the name! I remember a color we chose in the first room hubby and I painted together: "softness" .. for the bedroom. Now what kind of omen is that?
