Our Story

The idea for Colorhouse came to us when we were house painters looking for a premium paint that was safer for us and our planet. As artists, we wanted 
to make color-choosing easy, fun and less scary for homeowners. We wanted no compromises – a high quality paint with no stinky stuff and NO BAD COLORS!

In 2005, we launched Colorhouse, a premium performing, zero VOC paint brand, with palettes that make choosing color simple.
