Fine Paints of Europe’s Hollandlac SOHO Lofts
Friday, May 03, 2013
Those familiar with Fine Paints of Europe's Hollandlac line will surely have noted its fade-resistant color depth and brilliant surface appearance. For people far less informed about the oil-based Hollandlac paints, note that White is a great color option, as are the thousands of other available colors.
When it comes to residential interiors, particularly lofts, White is often overlooked. It has a bit of an undeserved though understandable reputation for plainness or lack of vibrancy. The truth is that Hollandlac White can look amazing. White can be elegant and timeless or classic and modern. And, if desired, it can even create a very attractive minimal aesthetic, depending on the interior architectural flourishes of the space.
Doubly so with Fine Paints of Europe's Hollandlac Brilliant and Satin white paints.
PNP has used it on everything from kitchen cabinets and doors to stair risers and wood furniture. Hollandlac Brilliant imparts a shimmering white finish, while Satin is a bit more subdued but no less handsome. And if you accent that brilliant white finish with a bit of color, whether it be on wood floors, furniture or textile, it will only look that much more impressive.
The point is this: White needn't be plain. It can look special and classy. So don't dismiss White as a color option, especially with Hollandlac paint. These paints flow out of the brush incredibly well, leaving a fine, classic brush stroke in their wake. If you happen to have to repaint a wall that was formerly a dark color, two coats of Hollandlac can off the coverage you need.
If White isn't your thing, Fine Paints of Europe has some of the most extensive color collections of any paint manufacturer. The Hollandlac color palette includes 10,000 FPE colors, 3,000 Pantone colors and, as Fine Paints of Europe notes, “an unlimited number of custom-tinted colors.”
Fine Paints of Europe even has special color collections. One, their Color Our World collection, ranges from calm and sexy colors to energetic and safer colors. The Guggenheim Color collection comprises 150 classic paint colors inspired by “much-loved paintings in the museum's permanent collection of modern art and Gallery Colors, 50 hues favored by generations of Guggenheim Museum curators, artists, and designers—including Frank Lloyd Wright himself!”
Color Evangelist Susan Sarget even has four collections, The Comfort of Color, Colorscapes, The Brights and The Lights. All look great.
There's really something for everyone with the Fine Paints of Europe line.
