The Loudest Drunk
at the Party
Find Colors that Work Well Together
and Surprise You
by Devine Color Founder, Gretchen Schauffler
Colors are like parties. People gathered together can mean a great time—good conversation, fabulous
food and dancing—or a dull, even unpleasant event.
So when it comes to putting together colors, think of
it as a party that may bore you to death or quickly get out
of control unless the right colors are invited.
Putting colors together takes careful planning. There is
nothing worse than wall colors all cramped together, trying to have a good time even though they have little in
Did you know colors have relationships? Some colors
have an affinity for each other. They complement and excite each other. You know that person who talks too loud
at a party? You don’t want that. Similarly, the wrong shade
of red with yellow can become crass. It can make the yellow a nauseous green.
You know when someone tells an amazing, upbeat
story at a party and the crowd roars? That, my friend, is
what you want. A perfect blushing shade of red that makes
your yellow a bright shining star.
At some parties, conversation can be uninteresting, monotonous in tone, inducing yawns. You get the same result
by avoiding reds, yellows, or any color you think might be
too bold. Without them, it
may be bland.
Colors that love to hang
out together can be placed
throughout a house—
connecting spaces, surfaces, art,
and furniture. They create a
great ambiance. Remember,
it is not just one room—
balance includes what you
can see in the next room.
Balanced color creates
a feeling that makes you
feel good about everything
Devine Color Creamy Wall Coatings is an artist-created paint brand that has been a category innovator since its inception more than 14 years ago. At that time, founder Gretchen Schauffler created Devine Color in her home studio because there was no paint worthy of the colors she imagined – a personal yet bold move that caused major paint brands to take note.
Devine Color is available in 209 trend-proof luminous hues organized into 19 inspiring collections. Shauffler created each paint color, which is hand-mixed on canvas and home-tested. A new and improved premium formula delivers a Zero VOC interior paint that is easy to apply and boasts a fabric-like finish enhanced with light-enhancing pigments. The
creamy wall coatings offer a better application process – with no dripping or spattering – that ultimately brings a room to life with rich, radiant color. devinecolor.com
