A Neutral Palette

What does it mean to have a neutral palette? Well, that all depends:

 

neutral palette vs. neutral pallet

 

THERE’S A DIFFERENCE

I don’t mean to be picky, but that’s just been driving me crazy. Something just HAD to be said, so there, I said it. WHEW, I feel much better now . . .

That is all. Ok, go on and enjoy the rest of your weekend, folks!

hahaha!!! my big one is “mantel” and “mantle” I had a client once who I prayed every night would fire me. Lo and behold, God listened and she did!

Then, in her preggers-batsht-crazeee way, decided she wanted to REHIRE me! Good one, huh? I told her that I preferred to remain fired. Yes, definitely fired. Yes, definitely.

Then she told me that I was in BREECH of contract. We could blame that one on the baby I suppose…

Hahaha – yes, it DID need to be said!! You know what else does? It is NOT a bedroom “suit” – it’s a bedroom SUITE. Which we know is passé anyway, but at least let’s call it by the right name

Thanks for my laugh of the day.

Aw, Kristie….I was all excited for another great article from you, thinking you were going to be writing in-depth about neutral palettes (I had to double-check my spelling with the above, ha, ha). But this is definitely an eye-catching way to get the point across about the correct spelling!
Have a nice,restful Sunday!

Hey Kristie – this post reminds me. Would you be willing to explain how/where you get those paint “drops”? I want to capture my whole house palette of colors all together using these so I can see how a possible new color looks next to it, and for the life of me I can’t figure out how to do it. Seems like half of the people on Pinterest have figured it out but I’m lost LOL. Thanks!

Pinterest is a great way to search for them too. When you go to Benjamin Moore’s Color Gallery and “pin” a color, it becomes the swatch (that’s how these bad boys are made.)

Another great article Kristie!

Oh, and the incorrect use of apostrophes. It’s 80s, NOT 80’s!!!

And then, of course, there is “palate” as in, “I hope you will find something on the menu that is pleasing to your palate.” Or, I suppose one could say something like, “I have a hunger for color, this shade of raspberry pink pleases my color palate.” Just throwing that in for a little more fun!
And now for a little story. When I was a new bride at age 21, my husband and I were attending a fancy dinner party. At one point the hostess walked into the room of guests and announced, “The hors d’oeuvres are now served. I hope they will please your palate!” That expression has stuck with me all these forty plus years, and it often runs through my mind when I serve food to guests, though I’ve never actually used it. : )

Thank you for keeping us on our toes! You are an impeccable writer. Thankfully I’m not guilty of the palette error but I may have botched mantle a time or two! This is embarrassing but worth sharing. When creating my marketing material a few years ago, I repeatedly talked about my BACKROUND!!!! Thankfully my daughter corrected it. I must have been absent from elementary school that day! UGH!

I’m stuck on a commuter train and laughing my head off! But it’s New York so people are used to erratic behavior. Your and you’re is a good one.

Kristie, you should add “The Fixer” to your title!
Hahaha not only do you fix homes through (thru) staging but you fix grammar too!
