I've been complaining (mostly to my husband) for a while now that Charlotte, NC is literally the LAST town to get Martha Stewart paint at Home Depot. You better believe I've been hounding them for weeks ;) I even called down to South Carolina (which is only about 15 minutes away) and they, too, are some of the last stores to get it.
BUT yesterday I turned that frown upside down when I learned my kitchen inspiration picture is RALPH LAUREN paint!!
Here is the picture:

How gorgeous is that paint? So rich and intriguing. Is it brown? Is it gray? I looked at every Benjamin Moore, BEHR and Valspar swatch and there was nothing like it. The Country Living magazine did not source it.
So I went to the wonderful world of the interwebs and checked out countryliving.com and luckily for me, there it was quoted as "Ralph Lauren Mercer". And even more luckily, I ran down to my car where I had stuffed a handful of Ralph Lauren swatches and there it was!
Inspection is next week. If everything goes well, I'm going to buy two gallons of that beautiful paint. I'll be even luckier if it's on sale [Our Martha Stewart paints are coming in May 5th].
EDIT: A very nice representative contacted me from Ralph Lauren [how cool!!!]. She informed me that Ralph Lauren will STILL be available through local Independent Paint Dealers after it leaves Home Depot. This is great news since I adore their colors. They will keep their website, RalphLaurenHome.com, updated on where to get it, etc. As a designer, I am very excited to learn this.
