I knew I was in a colour rut when I talked to my son Jamie on the phone. I said: I'm painting the kitchen. And Jamie said: Oh yeah. Let me guess. It's green.
What could I say? It is green--a soft warm grayed creamy green, but still it's green. And now I realize that every room in my house (with the exception of the laundry room and Harry's workshop) is some tone of green.
Well, I tried with the kitchen. I chose a colour that was more of a pale brown (well, ok, beige.) But when I put it on the walls it looked wrong. Too brown. So i headed out to the shed to find some leftover paint to make it right. What was right was... well I guess we can call it Joanna's creamy green.
