Dove

October 14, 2019

As mentioned in my previous blog post on the color “Smoke”, “Dove” is a darker version of the same color. To be precise, “Dove” is 75% of the “Driftwood” formula and “Smoke” is 50% of the “Driftwood” formula. We often create lighter versions of a color and can even do that with samples.

“Dove” walls in this apartment shows its brown leanings. That’s the thing about full spectrum paints. They are very color reflective so they look different in different settings, constantly changing with the light.

Mushroom

September 24, 2019

“Mushroom” was House Beautiful‘s “Editor’s Pick” as one of the top four brown paint colors in their App House Beautiful 500+ Favorite Paint Colors as well as in their bookazine by the same name. I call it a complex neutral because although it’s a beige, it’s definitely not your typical boring beige!

Beige, included in the brown family, is a purely physical vibration firmly grounded in the earthly plane, promoting stability and groundedness. It is similar to green in that it is a ray of balance. It carries with it a person’s natural desire for reasonable comfort, home and security. It typifies home and hearth and the satisfaction of basic human needs. The color of living wood and the earth, it can be rich yet subtle–extraordinarily restful to look upon, creating a feeling of coolness and warmth at the same time.
