Painting The Town Louisville Style

Louisville Color Collection by PPG Porter Paints

Kentucky Hot Brown (bottom left) is one of 75 hand-picked colors PPG Porter Paints chose to celebrate 90 years of business in Louisville, KY.

Need a little update for your home without spending too much? Try a new paint color! PPG Porter Paints just introduced the Louisville Color Collection, in honor of the company’s 90 year anniversary.

There are some great neutrals like Fort Knox Gold (6832-2), Lillies for the Fillies (6823-1), and Kentucky Hot Brown (6702-3). My favorite is Fleur-de-lis (6867-2), a crisp, light tan.

Earthy and relaxing, soothing blues and greens continue to be a big color influence. Try Kentucky Lake (7059-1), RiverWalk (7055-3), or Great Lawn (6995-2). Sour Mash (6928-2) is a cool, pale sage, and it’s just fun to say. Imagine telling your friends and neighbors that your walls are painted in “Sour Mash”!

If you want a little color without the commitment, the ever-popular accent wall may be your new best friend. For drama and style, go for a rich deep brown like “Whiskey Straight” (6678-4), or a vibrant red like Derby Hat (6059-5) or, of course, “Run for the Roses” (6048-5) would be great for every occasion.
