Butterscotch Tempest

My new landlord is painting my new house this weekend and let me pick the colors. So, under his direction, I went to Home Depot and looked at the Glidden samples. But I found myself unable to ask for the colors I wanted, because I couldn't say "Butterscotch Tempest" out loud. Nor could I say "Wispy Peach." And certainly not "Lace Corsage."

So it'll be "Pumpkin Pie," "Spice Orange," and "May Apple" instead.

It sounds like you would also have liked what we have in our living room, "Audobon Russet."

Heh. I just painted my office Cafe Latte, because it compliments my chair which, according to Glidden, is Kumquat [Orange].
