Trillion Paint Color and In-Store Tinting..... Know the benefits!

Posted on Mon, Dec 03, 2012 @ 09:51 AM

One of the greatest benefits of choosing California Paints, besides supporting a local paint retailer, is how we tint our paints to ensure your favorite colors look and last.  Trillion is our exclusive super strength colorant tinting system. When you choose a paint color and type of paint, the paint has to be tinted at the store location to produce the exact color. All paint stores tint paint, but California Paints' Trillion exclusive tinting system is 3.5 to 4 times stronger than conventional systems.  This allows for plenty of benefits, including some you might not expect!

Historic Colors and the Trend Cycle -- Part 1

Posted on Fri, Nov 02, 2012 @ 03:26 PM

Trends are an interesting occurrence. Some can be fleeting while others often repeat themselves. Color trends tend to be a bit more timeless. Our Historic Colors are great example of this. These colors were distinctively trendy during their specific time period which made them memorable. Expert historians, like those at Historic New England, recognize this and give these paint colors their historic stamp of approval. These historic hues continue to appear in color trends even today. So what exactly makes some of these historic colors more significant than the rest?  Why do they continue to pop up in color trends even now?
