... sigh.

Can you ask Gary again, with a different set of paint chips where sea foam green is the most neutral-looking among them? (warning, may result in him requesting lime green...)

theQueen

KC - He would again say it "clashes," (which it does not) because it is not a different value of the same color. He does not believe in complementary colors.

KC

Aha. Yes. I understand that. Could you maybe figure out a way for him to find out about color theory on his own and mansplain it to you?

theQueen

KC - hilarious! I bet that would work. And really all I would need to do is say, "Color theory is really hard, you wouldn't understand it."

KC

I mean. It actually *is* kind of hard, esp. for people who have always been tone-on-tone people (hi, I'm bad at knowing which colors will go together until I see them and it took me two years of middle school to accept denim as a neutral...). And he *might* not understand it but might just rush you with indignant samples of all these people who are *paid art people* and just see how *wrong* they are getting it all and how ridiculous it is.

But maybe... just maybe...

theQueen

KC - Doubtful, really. What I need to do is find a color that is just hideous, paint a wall that color, then the next color I try will be gorgeous.

KC

Pepto-bismol pink used to be traditional in bathrooms...

theQueen

KC - I actually have a whole quart of that in the basement.

KC

... I mean, what else are you going to use it for? ;-)
