Many years ago, I bought a fabulous pair of Anya Hindmarch shoes in London and the color was called Petrol. The color is a blue/green/turquoise and the name comes from the word for gasoline in the UK. It seems rather fitting then that the British couple, Christopher and Suzanne Sharp, who own The Rug Company should have petrol coloured walls in their London home. To see more, pick up the March 2010 issue of Vogue or check it out online at Vogue.com. Cheers!
