8mm Style On My Phone

This is too darn cute, right? With over 500,000 apps on the market I have a hard time sifting through the good and bad. The 8MM app is fun ($1.99) and perfect for the Instagram crowd—an app that applies polaroid style filters to photos. I shot this video on Sunday at Fort Sewall in Marblehead. You can turn the sound on/off and choose different style film from Noir, 60’s to Siena. Download the video to your iphoto library, e-mail or post instantly to youtube.

Testing Out More Greens & Trim Colors


Round two of picking a green paint for the den. I love Farrow & Ball’s paint colors but all the greens are just too dark for the den. I got a lot of votes for #2 Teresa’s Green (F&B) but to me it’s too blue. I want a sage green.

This morning I picked a few large paint samples from C2. I’ve read/heard C2 has a similar paint structure to Farrow & Ball. I think we have a winner with #4 Cucumber. I like the shade and it’s a nice green! I’ll have to live with it for few days. But I do feel confident if Cucumber doesn’t work I can find something similar in C2’s line.

Now onto trim colors. I tried out a few samples over the weekend. Trim colors from left to right: Off White, Joa’s White, Clunch, and Lime White all by Farrow & Ball. I’m leaning towards Off White, Clunch, or Lime White which are brown/grey/warm whites. I’m not a fan of yellow whites. #2 Joa’s white is pretty but too pink.

Below a video of the paint samples. The colors are so hard to photograph. I was hoping the video would give you a better idea of what the colors look like in real life. View on youtube in HD.
