Yolo - Fabulous Eco Paint

We love the color palettes of the YOLO. From Earth to Sprout to the Color of Hope. Designed and created by the awesome duo Virginia Young and Jamie Lowe (YO LO) when they moved from NYC to Portland, they adopted a healthy lifestyle. They set up a painting business doing murals and paint efffects and realised two things - firstly that clients were struggling with paint selections and secondly that the paints they were using, even the water based ones, were not in fact very healthy. They would come home with headaches and sore throats!

 So they created their own paint using clay and rice paste and collaborating with paint and green chemists to create the YOLO product we have today; YOLO Colorhouse premium, zero VOC interior paint.

How fantastic! Listed below are the things which are not in the paint:
  • No reproductive toxins
  • No mutagens
  • No hazardous air pollutants
  • No ozone depleting compounds
  • No formaldehyde
  • No phthalates
  • No VOCs
The website has a very cool color choosing palette guide.
Get healthy painting! If you need any help selecting colors get in touch.
