Color of the Month

July 2015: Falun Red

Exterior reds have universal appeal. A former church steeple, reinvented as a barn on a remote Norwegian island, inspires our July color. The building’s historic "Falun Red" reflects a broad spectral depth, and draws our eye around the tower’s perimeter, emphasizing its sculptural presence. We have used a unique range of colorfast exterior pigments to recreate the translucent, light reflecting ability of the original paint’s specially prepared Hermatite minerals.
