Color Palate


My whole career in construction started way back in 1990 when a painting company I was working for went out of business and I decided to buy their equipment and start my own company.  I was a Benjamin Moore fan back them, still am really, though these days I’m also really partial to clay based paints and plasters (they are way better for the environment both inside and outside your home).

I’ve never been a fan of Sherman Williams myself, the quality of their paint is just fine and they have a nice line of products, I’ve just never gotten over the fact that their logo is an image of a giant can of paint being poured over the earth and their tag line is “we cover the earth”. Yuck.

My prejudice aside though, their color search tool which they have built in partnership with uber hip style blog Apartment Therapy can be really useful if you’re looking for some color inspiration. Search any colors and the tool brings up dozens of room pictures with variations of that color. Click on a picture and a window opens with the exact Sherman Williams colors used.
