Now, had she actually wanted to use Hermes boxes, you all know I wouldn't have been interested in the project. But who can argue with using such a cheerful color in a bookcase? Chelsey was hoping to find a suitable color from Benjamin Moore and being the paint nerd that I am and having a soft spot for Bostonians (having lived there myself for a while), I jumped at the chance to narrow down the options.
Chelsey had read that Racing Orange was a likely candidate. When I put the strip on which is appears next to an Hermes box, I didn't think it was quite right. I thought the colors above it, Orange Parrot and Oriole, were better matches.
I moved to a different part of the Color Preview deck and found another strip with a few contenders. Electric Orange looked like the winner in this picture.
What do you think? What's your favorite on the strips below?
