Color

Greetings from the land of moderately-ridiculous paint names!

Without cheating and looking it up, guess: exactly what color is "Peppermint Beach"?

(C. thinks you should all provide RGB codes for it. I'm more forgiving and will settle for words.)

Pale khaki? A brownish eau-de-nil? Sandy green? (No, I have no idea what that would be either...)

Pale sandy pink.

Pale blue with a hint of beigeness? The colour of the bit of sea nearest to the shore which you can see the sand through (on a Caribbean type beach where the sand is pale and the sea is blue, not Brighton, that would be sludgy mud coloured).

Off to Google it and see if I am right now!

Googling done... I see there is also a Peppermint Beach cocktail. Guess the ingredients!

Not a clue. "Peppermint" suggests red and/or white, while "beach" would be tan. If it's some sort of combination of those, then it would be a dusty rose color, but then why not call it that?

It's green. Ask me how many green paints I looked at before I painted my living room a colour that was supposed to be sort of sage and turned out a dark kelly green, I dare ya :)

Not looking at the other answers, I'd guess it's a tan-pink.

peppermint would suggest some sort of pale green, but I'm not sure how youid get beach into it.

I would suggest pale green with warmish beigey undertones?

OK, mint is green, sand is sort of sort of beigey-orange, and water is bluish-green. I'm going to guess a pastel greenish-blue.

Will there be another post with the answer?

Yes, especially because there are two answers: the answers on the official Dulux strip, and the answer on my newly-painted door.

I'd say it was something like 66CCFF. Oh god, how sad does it make me that that's how I choose to describe a colour...

Gold star to you for answering in hex! I'm so proud of you for it. I bet C. will be even prouder.

WOW. Um ... like a seafoam-y green?

As a person still awash in paint samples (and with a wall that looks like the one seen in the background here), I side with C. At this point, I want RGB hex codes. That way I could just tell my husband, "Oh, you want a slightly more orange-y red-orange? HERE IS THE EFFING CODE FOR THAT."

So long as you calibrated your screens/walls/paint cans first!

I would guess it's the color of sand with crushed pink seashells in it. Sort of tan tinged with pink?

I'm going to go with vomit-green. Something about that concept combination really strikes me in a negative fashion.

Probably beige with a hint of green, like all those whites with a hint of colour that were the in thing years back. Bit confused at the people saying peppermint must be pink/red though...?

Peppermint-striped, at least in the US, is like a candy cane, red-and-white striping.
