What’s in a Name?

Phelan Pearl, Cavedon and Blissington. Do these names mean anything to you?

Phelan Ready is an Australian Race Horse that won last year’s Golden Slipper and all I can find on Cavedon and Blissington is people with those surnames. However, all of these names have been given to Paint Colours.

Have you ever wondered who chooses the names of colours? I can see that some names tell you exactly what you’re getting in a colour like Pate, Curry Paste and Chutney but then who wants that on their walls? There’s so much to think about, a bit like naming your first born.

Now YOU can be the person that names paint colours? For the first time ever Berger Paints are giving the Australian public the opportunity to name six colours from the new Berger Premium colour range.

Think of a colour name and explain the inspiration behind it. Or just vote on the colour names that others have come up with.

If your colour name wins, you’ll get a $500 voucher to spend at your local Inspirations Paint & Colour store plus the glory of knowing your name was the most popular and the colour will be painted in homes across Australia.

Paint Colours

Everyone who suggests a colour name or votes will get a free membership to the Colour Clique (valued at $25), which is the Inspirations Paint & Colour loyalty program, offering lifetime discounts and a colour recording service.

So log on and have a look at the colours, come up with a name or simply vote on your choice of the names already suggested. The competition runs until 25 Feb 2010.

Good Luck!
