I have a new dream job: I want to be the person who gets to name all the carpet colors for some carpet company out there. Seriously, there are like fifty-gazillion shades of brown and the exact same one will have a different name at every store I find it in. It's a veritable endless gushing fountain of quasi-poetic labels.
Biscuit, briar, sandswept, oatmeal, latte, fawn, cashmere, spice-is-nice, birch, quiet-afternoon, chai, antique lace...
Sometimes they get on a roll and don't know when to get off - I found one entire set of carpet colors that started off with vaguely 'retro' names and just kept going until there were random blends of berber being called "Fonz," "Love Bug" and "Kotter"... another where it was all kinds of candy with seemingly no association with the shades at all.
I want to do a series for boys rooms with names like "old socks" and 'boogers" just for the fun of it - I bet it would sell!
