For years, Karen has been imagining a new wall color for the focal point of her living room, her prized painting of Frida Kahlo. She had in mind something from the turquoise family but hadn't found the right one. Once we discovered Colorhouse paint and partnered with them on the Style Matters podcast, she started thinking her long-time vision might become a reality.
Colorhouse sent us their fan decks and she immediately knew that their DREAM .06 was meant for her home. She particularly loves the deep, moody aspect of the color that feels layered and rich. When proposing this project to Colorhouse, we also thought it would be good to update her dining room since it opens into the living room and you want to have the colors from one room flow into the other in a way that feels intentional. A lovely mid-range gray felt crisp and modern, and a perfect balance to the bold turquoise.
Colorhouse graciously agreed with the parameters of the project and we got started. One thing we were most looking forward to was painting with no VOCs or other toxins...something that Colorhouse is proud to offer in all of their paints. We both often get headaches when painting with other brands and have to have all the windows open and take lots of breaks. With Colorhouse, we were completely comfortable and headache-free.
Now that we've had the pleasure of painting with Colorhouse, I don't think we'll ever want anything else! The quality of the paint was noticeably luxurious in the way it went on. It had excellent coverage and once dry, looked almost as if the walls were covered in suede or something other very smooth but dynamic fabric. It's hard to explain....you'll have to get your own to see what we mean!
And because we want to encourage you to get started on your own paint project, Colorhouse has generously offered to do a giveaway!
