OUR PAINT SOURCES
For the last 20 years, Color in Space has trusted Benjamin Moore® Paints for three reasons:
1. Sustainability: While Aura® is low-VOC, Benjamin Moore®'s Natura® is considered their “greenest” product:
2. Quality: As architectural color consultants, we need to recommend paints that will hold up and make our clients happy without fail. While Benjamin Moore® is not the least expensive, we find that its reliability proves you get what you pay for. They are also easily accessible in most major cities across the United States and online.
3. Color Choices: Benjamin Moore® has the largest color selection available and supports their designers with fabulous tools. After working almost exclusively with this brand of paint for the last 25 years, Emily even has much of their palette imprinted in her brain. Her experience with how the colors play and relate in different light, interior and exterior, gives her the confidence to recommend colors to her clients without reservation. Benjamin Moore® also has a fabulous variety of muted and saturated colors. This is what provides such incredible depth and a natural energy to the Color in Space Palettes™ and color designs.
FULL SPECTRUM PAINTS
Full Spectrum paints are specially formulated blending the 7 colors in natural sunlight to create infinite color and variation. As a result, they emit an incredible energy that goes far beyond how the color looks. There are limited brands of Full Spectrum Paint available on the market. Benjamin Moore's® Aura® Color Stories® are Full Spectrum paint formulas. We have specified these more luminous formulas for the Color in Space Chakra Palettes™.
Standard paint colors are usually a blend of two or three pigments that include black, which absorbs light. Ellen Kennon's Full Spectrum Paints omit black and have a broader range of pigments that reflect a broader range of light and coordinate more easily with the colors and furnishings around them. They are chameleon-like in their ability to pick up colors from adjacent materials and to change character as the light changes. Also, because of the absence of black and the perfect balance of a full spectrum of pigments, they don't tend to turn muddy or lose their character in low light conditions. Full Spectrum Paints are deep and beautiful and can work together to create the most nurturing atmospheres.
