hey all,
i need paint colour help. i'm trying to find that colour of green that is EVERYWHERE. sort of a yellow-green with some grey in it. think 1960s style appliances.

my apartment has light wood floors, my inherited furniture (table, coffee table, hutch etc) is all pine, and my 2 loveseats are black. i dont want it to be TOO dark either, but something really organic and simple looking. HELP ME!

also, im in canada. i know some paint companies only make certian colours in the states.

well i know on appliances they usually call the color avocado. 
maybe you could try bringing in a picture of something the color you want to the paint place and they could help you find it, or mix it for you?

a lot of paint stores have computer matching, so if you bring in something the color you want, they can mix up paint the exact same color.  I saw a teakettle that color at Ross.  You could buy an item, have it color matched, and return it if you decided you didn't want it after all... Shocked
