Color: Cement

Urban dwellers often think of Nature as lakes and trees in the countryside, not underfoot in cities, but the mineral ingredients found in cement are as old and “natural” as our planet.

By contrasting this ubiquitous urban material with brightly colored octane ports, we are reminded of the hues and textures we see in other natural, but otherwise unnoticed pathways.

Color: Coleus

Coleus subtly balances orange and violet. This unlikely alliance creates its decorative poetry by leading us away from easy categorization into the realm of multiple impressions.

Our vision finds the greatest satisfactions in the infinite variations we let ourselves notice in our surroundings.

Color: Sulphur Yellow

More than any other paint color, yellow appears to generate its own light. Ironically, our receptors are not sensitive to yellow, but create our impressions of it by blending equal parts of orange and green.

April’s Sulphur acknowledges spring growth by leaning ever so slightly toward green.

Color: Blue Campanula

The luminous depth of our Campanula flowers is amplified by the shifting gradations of March light, both shining through and reflecting off their delicate bell-shaped surfaces.

We can create similar resonance in rooms by orchestrating the infinite potential of pigments interacting in a film of paint.
