Colour lovers of the world unite and take over

Have a look at this amazing list of colours at Wikipedia, and the tantalizing names that have been found to describe them – both traditional and modern – where Antique Fuschia, Carnation Pink and British Racing Green are found alongside Jazzberry Jam, Tickle Me Pink and Cosmic Latte.

The near impossible task of matching colour from monitor to monitor and the absence of surface and pigment means it’s inevitably a hit and miss affair – so Banana Yellow looks nearly identical to (American) School Bus Yellow on my screen.

Things get more whimsical at www.colourlovers.com where site users have contributed to the naming of a bewildering two and a half million colours, and submitted custom schemes and patterns.
