Color Tips from Ace Hardware - Color of the Year

Ace has always been "the helpful place," but this is the first time ever that their Color of the Year was a brand new color completely created, named and voted on by their consumers. During Ace’s Neighborhood Paint Party in March, fans were encouraged to hand mix, create and name their own paint color for a chance to be entered into Ace’s Color of the Year Contest. Submissions were judged by a panel of Ace color experts who selected 25 finalists, with consumers leading the ultimate decision process as they voted for their favorite color on Ace’s social media channels - and the winning color is a light, airy yellow that’s perfect for summer that will become an official Clark+Kensington color available in Ace's Paint Studios nationwide.

·  Color Overview
o    Pineapple Cream Granita. This mellow and warm yellow makes you think of eating a refreshing dessert in the golden glow of afternoon light. 
·  Pineapple Cream Granita Tips: 
o    “A freshly painted yellow wall is the perfect way to evoke feelings of warm weather. Use Pineapple Cream Granita to brighten up any space in your home, but it works best in high-traffic areas like the dining room, family room or entry way.” 
o    “Yellow paint colors don't always need to be vivid and sunny - a more muted, neutral yellow brighten up a space without being too overwhelming.” 
o    “An entry-way is a great place to use Pineapple Cream Granita, with a lot of natural light, the color pops and welcomes your guests."
o    "An energy-inspired shade like Pineapple Cream Granita can add a touch of elegance into a living room or create a light-filled breakfast nook." 
·  Pairings and Complementary Color Tips: 
o    “Pair Pineapple Cream Granita with crisp, cool whites or a pale blue accent colors to really make the shade pop in your home.” 
o    "A frosted, pastel yellow like Pineapple Cream Granita is tasteful in almost any space. Pair with contrasting shades of green for a nature inspired look perfect for warmer weather months.”
