Japanese Fern

This time, I took Savannah with me, and we poured over paint sample after paint sample. I had already hung the black faux suede dining room drapes with no firm color choice against her better judgment, and I'd shown her the inspiration room clipped from Better Homes and Gardens, so we went mentally prepared to dive in!
Paint swatch number three...
...Behr's Japanese Fern...
...did not look like ectoplasm on the paint chip.
*Sighhhhhhh*

oh my! What kind of green are you looking for? Something a little softer?

Hey, i like the general idea and cheerfulness of the color. What I've learned, though, is to go at least one shade lighter than what you love, because it always is too strong on entire walls. Maybe mix a bit of white into it and try again?

I like the cheeriness, but I think doing the whole room would be too much. It's kind of...neon. We're going back, and we'll look for something more subdued.

I smell something fishy in Denmark...Unless my eyes are playing tricks on me that is 'not' the same color on the expample. I would be hoofing it back to the store to get an explaination.

Sherri, I'd suspect foul play, except that the little dot of paint on the jar looks normal. We were still loving the color at that point.

Maybe my walls are possessed?

Comforting to know that I'm not the only one who never ends up with the paint color I had in mind... Good luck!

Can't wait to see what you pick!

Heather, I'm hoping for something that looks less like an alien crime scene.
