Well, being a contractor`s daughter pays off in one way, at least.

Now all those summers of helping dear `ol dad tape off rooms and mix paint almost seems worth it.

naming colors like this is bs. No one needs all these useless unrelated names... Not even interior designers, I`ll explain why...

The reason why these names exist is to add diversity to the colors, to make them more exciting and to have more for people to choose from. Colors are just colors nothing more, and as for diversity, if say... a interior designer offers you a thousand colors to choose from, all with abstract names like these, then shouldn`t they be open to offering you all 16.5 million colors in the RGB range? Bah.

Funniest name I ever saw was "hooker green".

To the ones of you who missed teal: How can you miss teal? It`s a very specific color! Often in stores, clothing is labelled by colors and teal is a common one.

70%. I disagree that that is cotton candy! Cotton candy would be darker in color. And what is ecru?

Negative_One - if you calibrate your monitor, then a color test on a monitor isn`t a bad idea.

In my quest to identify all of the colors mentioned in this quiz, I came across a shocking discovery: "cotton candy" is not an official color (according to google and wikipedia).
