An understated calm neutral and go to color for a wide variety of items and spaces. It is a natural fit for the bedroom, and living room but certainly not limited to these areas”.

Cappuccino White

Glidden:  “A delicate, creamy neutral that creates a peaceful calm in any space. Here, it complements a light neutral in a bright, airy kitchen. Cappuccino White creates a sense of delicacy and graceful design that promotes wellness, purity, mindfulness, balance, privacy and peace. It is the color of seashells and ocean-smooth rocks. The elegant white pairs well with delicate pastels and light neutrals”.


Blue Cloud

Olympic: “Sparkling and deep undertone that resembles the ocean on a clear day. An unapologetic blue that is easily noticed, it is impactful, self-expressive, social and glamorous. The tone is sparkling and deep”.


Paradise Found

Pittsburg:  “A calm tone getting a lot of love this year. The quiet shade fits in perfectly with natural environments. It is a serious green that is nurturing as well as sturdy and protective. While Paradise Found appears quiet and muffled, it provides a sense of strength and organic energy that is reminiscent of the military and natural environments”.
