Mary Lawlor, Kelly-Moore Paints Color Stylist, has identified 10 of Kelly-Moore’s most popular classic neutrals and pairs them in exciting combinations using 12 of today’s hot new trend colors. For those feeling creative, the pairings of course, are endless but for those wanting vetted choices and more professional input, Mary has done all the hard work. Each color combination conveys a different look and feel.

There’s no denying it, for years, neutrals – the whites and beiges that often dominate home décor – have been a safe choice for consumers especially during economic downturns. But as the current recovery begins, we’re seeing what Mary Lawlor, color stylist for Kelly-Moore Paints, calls “frugal fatigue” – a sentiment that, in the world of paint, consumers are ready to spend and take risks with color. Adding even a small touch of fresh new color into our home is guaranteed to nurture our souls without costing a fortune – it appears we’re in a “color recovery.”

Kelly-Moore Paint Company, Inc., a leader and innovator of waterborne-coating technology and the first major paint company to offer recycled paints, introduces its Top Color Picks to Enliven 10 Classic Neutrals Collection. Lawlor has identified 10 of Kelly-Moore’s most popular classic neutrals and pairs them in exciting combinations using 12 of today’s hot new trend colors. For those feeling creative, the pairings, of course, are endless, but for those wanting vetted choices and more professional input, Lawlor has done all the hard work. Each color combination conveys a different look and feel. Lawlor sees this return to fresher, more vibrant colors in home décor and the marketplace as an emerging trend. “Color is coming back but in a completely new way which is exciting,” she explains. “In this collection, we have effectively captured the desire for brighter, livelier colors. Our pairings offer inspiration and direction on how to enhance the color undertones of our neutrals while giving them a contemporary feel that adds new spice and character. The majority of us are content with using a safe neutral but even the choice of neutrals can be overwhelming. Our goal was to simplify these choices for our customers.”
