What is the colour of “Old World Romance”?

Old world romance – black and white?

I design books and always thought of colour swatch books as a good read. (Huh?)

Visual and literal at the same time, they are light reads that sharpen your vocabulary.
But I have noticed that some big name paint companies in America are getting creative with how they name that 30 shades of blue.


Can you guess what could possibly be the colour of…


1) Grandma’s Refrigerator

2) Dog’s Ear

3) Quebec Calm

4) Bookroom Red

5) Sweet Midori

6) Old World Romance


They may not be what you think. My imagination is stirred.

The paints are from MyPerfectColour, Benjamin Moore, Valspar, Farrow & Ball, Behr and Benjamin Moore respectively.
