maybe even

Have you ever wondered who gets to name paint chips? Does a committee huddle around a table, voting on names? Or does a single lucky soul sit down and begin to write with a flourish, Dove Wing, Fresh Linen, Moon Dust, Fuzzy Mitten, Paris Sky......
Would you rather paint a room Potato Peel or Vichyssoise, Twine or Cardigan?
I think some of the names were acts of desperation made late on a Friday afternoon.
By then color would be swirling round and round and the names of each would run across the horizon like the news on CNN.
Perhaps the Paint Chip Namer rushes home to a completely white apartment each evening;
Ironstone White or Powder or Handkerchief or maybe even Perfect Pearl.
