Manor Blue (aka Kristen).

My landlord allowed me to pick out the colors for my apartment because she said it needed to be painted. She told me that I could pick out some Benjamin Moore colors and she would have the walls painted by the time arrived. A landlord that doesn't require stark white walls? Heaven!!!!

So I went to town with my friend Amy picking colors and even adding an accent wall in the living room (to be covered later). When I arrived, they were perfectly painted and looking good!

That's when I noticed that my bedroom color matched my favorite nail color, exactly! (I know because my favorite nail color is one of the few things I brought with me and didn't pack for the moving truck.)

My favorite nail color right now is Zoya's "Kristen":

Zoya describes the color as "a gull gray nail polish with a mild bluish hue."

Well Benjnmin Moore calls the color "Manor Blue."

Benjamin Moore describes the color as "a hint of violet distinguishes this elegant mid-tone blue-gray. Muted and well-mannered, it adds a touch of sophistication to any setting."

Tomato - tomatoh. Who cares? All I know is that I love this color and can't get enough of it if I picked it out twice.

I think they call this a signature color?


  1. Oh my gosh!! I love this color! I have been looking for something like for quite a while! How's Chicago??

  2. This just made my day! Can't wait to come and see it!

  3. Loving it so far and getting used to the fact that I need to have an umbrella with me 24/7 :)
