“Titanium” is a well-balanced grey. Neither too warm or too cool. It’s a new color I created from a sample Spokane painter Mike Richter sent me. I liked it so much, I added it to my new color palette. Since it’s new, I only have photos from one project where I specified it for siding on a bungalow in the Garden District of Baton Rouge. However, designers Brian Rowe and Caroline Alberstadt recently used it on a project so I’m hoping for some photos of it soon!

We used PPG Paints’ new Break-Through Interior/Exterior Gloss on both door and porch floor. It’s as durable as an alkyd and dries in 20 minutes.

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.

“Pumice” is one of my favorite complex neutrals. It’s a warm grey that is so misty, it makes you want to touch the walls because they don’t look solid. When I say warm, I mean although it’s a grey, it’s not cold and in some settings it can lean on the green side.

Grey at its highest silvery hue is the ray of peace. In interiors, it creates a timeless, contemplative and relaxing mood. It’s considered a color of compromise and harmony. I highly recommend it as the main neutral in open floor plans.

The warmth in “Pumice” make it a wonderful complement to the warm cypress wood tones used in this newly constructed sun room.

We used “Pumice” on both walls and ceiling since there was no crown molding and it visually raises the ceiling height when you paint both the same color. The trim is “Putty”
