SPT: Name that color


Maybe it's juvenile, but I do have a favorite color. The problem is figuring out what to call it. Some of my favorite things have come with the name of the color printed on the label, some haven't.

Santana Album Cover:
Turquoise



My bedroom door nob sign:
Aqua



Christmas gift from Kelly:
Abalone Blue


Carpet by the patio door:
Danube Blue


Police Concert Shirt:
??? 'Police Concert Shirt Blue' ???


Mary Jane Crocs:
Seafoam


YW binder:
Peacock


YW bag:
Robin's Egg


Throw Blanket:
Ocean Spray


What would you call it?

You can always turn to Crayola for a little bit of help from their current crayon color chart.

Even more fun is the Crayola Color History.

Love this color, what color would I call it? Looks like Turquoise(sp) to me! Love all the items you photographed for this post! Great stuff!

Oh...oh...oh....what a beautiful SPT. I think the name of that color is BARB BLUE!

Wait! On second thought, I think it's Bluebarb.

I loved the crayola colour history. So fun to read the progression from 'red' to 'razmataze raspberry.'

This was a fun way to find out that you love various shades of blue. It's cool to see all those things in your house, everything is so pretty.

This is great! I like Robin's egg and seafoam. That just brings good images up in my head:)

Ooh, I love the rug. I think of you whenever I see this shade of blue/turquoise/aqua, and I love that you have incorporated it into your house now. Brynlee's room is painted this color, and it is so soothing I told Keith we needed to paint the entire house that color. He wasn't quite sure if I was serious or not. I wasn't at the time. Maybe next house.

This is what I'm talking about. This is such a pretty color and I love it on so many people. But I just can't pull it off. It is a beautiful color, whatever you decide to call it.
