Colorhouse Splashes Into Summer With the Aqua Fusion Color Palette

A Fresh, New Paint Palette Inspires Dreams of Sailing the West Indies Without Ever Leaving Home

PORTLAND, OR--(Marketwired - Jun 10, 2014) - Specializing in paint formulated without volatile organic compounds (VOCs), Colorhouse today announced its Aqua Fusion color palette. New for summer 2014, Aqua Fusion was inspired by sailing and the remote destinations that beckon voyagers to escape the ordinary. The entire Colorhouse collection can be shopped online at homedepot.com, amazon.com, and in store at select retailers. To find a retailer near you, visit www.colorhousepaint.com.

"A recent adventure took us down to St. Vincent and the Grenadines in the West Indies," said Janie Lowe, Colorhouse co-founder and artist. "From sunrise to dusk, our visual frame was full of brilliant aquas and blues."

Aqua Fusion pays homage to global style and natural hues. As technology and travel make the world smaller, encountering colors and patterns from far-away lands is inspiring more people to be daring in their use of color in their living and working spaces. "Aqua Fusion delivers the color spectrum of calming waves of the Caribbean, the clear blue skies above, and everything in between," Lowe said.

Create Your Own Caribbean Retreat, Wherever You Happen to Be

To create a Caribbean retreat from the Aqua Fusion color collection, use THRIVE .04 and a Colorhouse blue, like WATER .01 on your walls, with AIR .05 as a harmonizing white on ceilings or trim. For an accent hue, use the hot pink of PETAL .04 in textiles or furniture. Or try combining all Colorhouse aquas together to create an ombre effect -- learn how here: http://www.yolocolorhouse.com/blog/2014/06/03/how-to-paint-an-ombre-wall/. "But be careful," Lowe cautions. "You might find yourself humming reggae tunes and developing a deep craving for rum punch."
