Online ordering just got easier!

April 24, 2015

I have been busy updating my online store where you can purchase paint samples and paint. I do a lot of this work myself, so I’m afraid it’s not as professional as I’d like, but I love not having to depend on anyone else to do it. I have streamlined the products so that every color we have ever created is listed in the drop down menu for each of our individual samples and each paint product has the finish options, along with the colors available in that particular product. Every week we’ll be adding more colors available in the Pure Performance VOC-free product. Since we have very few of our colors reformulated in the Manor Hall product, there is now a box where you can type in the color. Just know to plan ahead because we most likely will have to create a formula for whatever color you order. I recently used the Manor Hall for a Master Bedroom Suite addition I just finished and featured it in my last newsletter. The color we used is called “Redwood Rose” and is our full spectrum formula of an old A. Hayes Town color used in the conference room in the Steele Burden Memorial Orangerie in Baton Rouge.

The Manor Hall is an excellent product, just a little more expensive than our other products. My new pup Winston likes the label as much as I do!

Winston loves the Manor Hall product. Just remember to order at least a week in advance so we have time to create a formula!

Looking Forward to Fall

September 3, 2014

Summer is almost over and my Fall schedule is pretty exciting! Since my last post, I’ve been asked to speak at the D&D Building’s Fall Market in NYC. Scheduled for October 15-16, the opportunity inspired me to create my new hand-painted color charts, and most recently what I think will be a handy tool for use in planning paint projects. The Design Folder consists of my  11″x17″ hand-painted color chart of 100 stock colors, plus my Whites & Brights color chart, as well as color therapy information, all enclosed in a folder large enough to also store your project’s 8″x11″ samples.

My handy new Design Folder shown on a rare Anichini hand-loomed throw. A gift from artist Hunt Slonem. Serendipity abounds!

My talk on the powerful energy of color, its effect on human emotion, and how to use it to create healing spaces will be held on Thursday, October 16th at 10:00 am in the Anichini showroom. I have been a big fan of Anichini textiles and linens for years and only recently met Susan Dollenmaier, its founder, when she stayed at Shadetree Inn here in St. Francisville. Susan is about to open her newest venture, the Anichini Company Store, in Quechee, Vermont next month where you’ll be able to purchase my paints and see nine of my full spectrum paint colors gracing the walls. Stay tuned for photos coming soon! I will also report back with the D&D Building’s schedule of other speakers for the two-day event. 

It’s been a while since I’ve visited New York, so I was thrilled when my two good friends Owen Kemp and Keith Koppens offered to go with me. At the very least, I’ll have a couple of audience members and a damn good time! 

We’re also looking forward to visiting artist Hunt Slonem‘s new 30,000 square foot studio. Hunt threw me a small party in his old studio during my last visit and was kind enough to include me in his newest book “When Art Meets Design” due out September 9. Do I have wonderful friends, or what?

When Art Meets Design by Hunt Slonem is available for pre-order on Amazon.com

I’m thrilled to be mentioned several times in Hunt’s book and can’t wait to see the photos. This photo showcases “Turquoise” from my Magical Gems Palette.

If you are in the area, I hope you’ll plan to visit the market and join us for what promises to be both interesting and fun!
