The Good Color
Revitalize a room with a fresh coat of paint. Itís affordable, fun, and can even be environmentally friendly, thanks to the many companies manufacturing eco paints. Here are a few we like:
Above: Poster-size color swatches from Portland, Oregon-based company†Yolo Colorhouse, a zero VOC paint line. These user-friendly samples come with repositionable tape on the back, allowing you to try colors on various without having to mark any walls.
Above: Green Planet Paints are zero-VOC paints made from plant resins and mineral pigments, available in three finishes: flat, eggshell, and semigloss.
Above: We love Mythic Paint because its non-toxic solution provides the coverage you expect from a premium paint, but does not emit cancer-causing toxins after application.
Above: The Old-Fashioned Milk Paint Company develops environmentally safe, non-toxic colors that are great for use on home interiors of those with allergies, as well as children’s furniture and toys. Their milk paint for walls has a slight milky odor when applied, but it dries to be completely odorless.
