I may have to follow you and do the nimbus grey when I paint the garage floor.

I say good call.

now the Nagaro bathroom may be pushing it.  Then again, just avoid the imolla yellow kitchen and you are probably OK.

Ah yes, but what about a Nogaro Blue kitchen and an Imola Yellow bathroom? I think that would be awesome.

I'm trying to figure out at which point the Audi/VW thing is a "healthy hobby" and at which point it becomes a "life-threatening obsession".

When you start say "vw" and "audi" as much as some people say "subaru"

it doesn't matter whether you say VW, or Audi, or Subaru (although it might if you said Hundai or Kia)  Anyway, we all passed that healthy hobby mark a LONG time ago.

It'd be great! And you'd obviously need not just the Death Star subwoofer, but an entire surround sound system comprised of Star Wars memorabilia. Imagine: X-Wing center speaker, TIE Fighter front speakers, and Millenium Falcon rears, standing on platforms that look like lightsabers!  Your T.V. isn't a Mitsubishi...it's an Audi, as the four rings clearly tell you.  In fact, all electronics in your house are either manufactured by Audi or VW. You've even taken the time to put VW stickers on the back of Audi-marked gadgetry, to make it more authentic looking.   8O  :D

Nimbus Grey Walls 2, the sequel!
« Reply #25 on: October 03, 2005, 02:01:36 AM »
I repainted the wall where my entry door is -- it was a dark chocolate brown which I liked but with wood doors, slate colored tiles, and being next too the kitchen, there was a lot of browns going on and I wanted something in a cool shade for more of a contrast.

I chose a bright lime yellow-green paint which I started to paint yesterday (which I wanted to carry over from the acid yellow halogen lighting I have in my office space across the room).  It looked awesome at night and looked very nice next to the nimbus grey wall, but it looked really loud and obnoxious during the day.
Knowing that a darker color works well with this wall (it's only 5 feet wide and 10 feet tall), I'm going to take inspiration from another cool car color.

I'm going to have you guys take a guess.
here's a hint: It's not an Audi or VW color.

good guess, but it's darker than that.
It's actually a pretty unusual shade of blue -- from a European car maker.
