36 New Interior Hues Capture the Beauty of Traditional Handcrafts from Metal and Beeswax to Glass and Wood
PORTLAND, Ore., Sept. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Drawing on their artist backgrounds, YOLO Colorhouse cofounders Janie Lowe and Virginia Young debut a new collection of artist-crafted colors that combine the spirit of early American crafters with current trends in color and design. Designed with richness and complexity, the Handcrafter Color Collection includes 36 harmonious interior hues that reflect today's emphasis on bringing the handmade into the everyday. These contemporary hues embody the energy of the crafter's materials in the color families of BISQUE, BEESWAX, GLASS, WOOL, METAL and WOOD. YOLO Colorhouse paint and samples are available on HomeDepot.com.
"All modern design reflects the early crafters who worked with raw materials like clay, wood and glass," says Janie Lowe, cofounder of YOLO Colorhouse. "We felt the timing was perfect to honor the craft traditions with a new collection of colors that speaks to today's aesthetic of cooler, greyer hues. These 36 colors are both tactile and authentic and connect us to the artists who came before us." For a video on the making of the Handcrafter Collection click here.
