Help Me Choose The Perfect Colour

So, at Switch we have a gift from Benjamin Moore for a free can of paint - Yay!  The problem is that the offer expires at the end of the month, so we need to pick up some paint lickity split.

Another problem is that we don't have a specific piece to paint, but hey, we're sure to pick up a desk, dresser, or hutch soon enough - Right?  Or perhaps you need a piece of furniture painted? - Let us know if you do, we'd love to help!

Anyway, for now I'd like a little help from you deciding on a fun colour that you love and think will be the most versatile to paint a piece of furniture in the future - Here are a few we're trying to choose from...

So, what do you like best?  Peacock Blue, Banana Yellow, Tangy Orange {which ties in nicely with the colour of the year} or Coral Gables?  They are all so fun, and would look great on the right piece, which makes it so hard to choose.  Help a gal out, and let me know your favourite!


  1. I'd say peacock blue :) the perfect shade for a super cute, worn style table or chair ;) add some fresh flowers on it and I'm yours ;) XO

  2. Somehow that peacock blue is looking really good.....great color! Good luck...

  3. I like them all, but if I have to choose, peacock blue is my choice!
    Good Luck!

  4. I really love the peacock blue or coral gables - both are so fabulous!

  5. My 'safe' pick is Peacock Blue (you can't go wrong with that!) but I think the Tangy Orange sounds more fun (especially in light of the color of the year!).
    Can't wait to see what you choose and where you paint it!

  6. I am currently waiting for my new duvet cover in crushed orange tangerine velvet, paired with matching shams. Coral Kate spade sheets and red and white chairs. Trying to pull it all together with a wall color. I see coral as the unifying color and orange and red as the accents. Any thoughts. I am a fan of merlot red as well, an orangish red and gorgeous on furniture, my friends uses it a lot.

  7. I see that I'm not alone in my peacock blue obsession !

  8. We just painted my daughter's television console a turquoise like the peacock blue...the banana yellow would be fun with some white and yellow linen pillows that I saw recently. What did you decide?

  9. Decisions, decisions! I really like the Peacock Blue. I can see that on a gorgeous hutch or dresser, or even on a chair with a nice geometric print!


Oodles of thanks for the comment!
