After living for years in the grey cityscape of Manhattan, working as the head of the Interiors Department for the celebrated architect, Peter Marino, Ellen Kennon found herself missing nature. It wasn’t obvious at first, but when she found herself staring through a fence at the lush greens of her local park she realized what she was missing. Soon after, she moved to her native Louisiana and built a cabin in the woods, where she lives to this day. It is here that she found what she was looking for: color!
Here, inspired by nature’s palette, Ellen created a line of Full Spectrum Paints. Each is created from at least 7 spectrum pigments and never include black. This combination of the full spectrum in each color allows the color to stand on its own as a facet of sunlight, and because there is no black, they never appear muddy or lose their character in low light conditions. They are truly enigmatic, and as a result, have been featured in House Beautiful, Architectural Digest, The Wall Street Journal, and The New York Times.
But they are more than just hues. Ellen believes that color is energy and light, and that natural light is very healing. Her spectrum paints are solid versions of liquid light and have a vibrancy, a life. Join us at our New York Showroom as Ellen discusses the powerful energy of color, its effect on human emotions, and how to use it to create healing spaces.
