Colour Choices

My Arts and Crafts research and my kitchen painting research met at an fun intersection this week: historical paint shade charts.  It's so interesting that different eras had unique palettes.  The ones below are ones that I found that roughly corresponded with Arts and Crafts, and they are absolutely colours that I'm drawn to.  For our kitchen, we picked out a pale yellow for the walls and a sage-y green for the cupboards, but that makes it sound much easier than it was, of course.  Endless paint chips and appealing names to pick from...

So hard to find a good buggy paint these days, isn't it?  Aladdin, where have you gone?
