Which Colors Should I Choose?


One of my tasks today was to choose the color lineup for our pots for the coming season. It's not easy to pick the colors.......it's a big responsibility! What if I pick wrong? What if the consumers don't like my choices? Which ones will be the most popular?

Well, I started out with a table full of paint samples from Home Depot spread out so it's easier to see all the different possibilities. Should we go green.......or taupe.......or stone? How's a girl to choose?!


I managed to pick out a few of my favorite tones and set them up side by side and suddenly I realized that I had chosen the same colors as................the dancers from Beauty and the Beast! We just watched it last week while we were at Disney World!!!!!
Hmmmm! Better start over :)

I can't help you with picking pot colors. I just spraypaint what I don't like. That would not work in your case...

Love Beauty in the Beast Show. It is my favorite since Tarzan Rocks was relocated to Japan... Sigh... That was a fine diversion... I mean show as well.

I'd go for (from left to right) the green, the colour next to it, skip one and then pick the next one.
For what it's worth! :D

Why start over? If the colors please all those people watching Beauty and the Beast, surely they will please many plant consumers. And now you will have me looking at the colors of the pots when I shop this spring. I never thought I paid attention. :)

Truly, I never notice the pot colors, but I'd guess you can't go wrong with green or terra cotta, they are old favorites.

I loved all your color choices. I would have a hard time narrowing it down. I love that green color! :)

I would pick the second from the left as it is so neutral....but that is just me! good luck

I like all the ones you chose...can't you use them all together? It would make people want to buy more of them so they could have one in every color :)

I like all the ones you chose!

Isn't it so hard choosing from those little chips? At least they have gotten a little larger over the years! I like your choice.

Thanks for the comment...I can't make a decision on the color...I'm incapable of making decisions! ;)
Keep in mind that I do make these letters/personalized items to order when your little grandbaby is born!

Well if it works for Beauty and the Beast it ought to work for you, lol! Goodness, I had no idea so much thought went into that. Who knew?

Appreciated your comments because it is so true. We just have to totally trust Him!

You know what I would do If I were you? When it's time for you to choose, I would find out the current line-up of paint colors Pottery Barn is offering and let them do the work for you. EVERYONE loves their paint choices and they change by season and year. Good luck! : )

Thanks for commenting at my blog -- it's always a thrill to get comments -- "they like me, the really like me!!" I think the colours you chose are all gorgeous, even if they were Disney inspired....nothing wrong with that!

I tend to buy neutral flower pots. I want to flowers to tell their story. I do have a few deep red/burgundy that I really like.
I think the style of the pot is what speaks the most to me!
