I think the new 2018 Fall colors are exquisite, don’t you? I’m delighted to see an orange added for the first time, as well as the pretty pink Lotus color that has me swooning!
Here’s what the owner of Wise Owl Paint had to say about Mandarina and why it’s such a special color to her.
“Our limited time edition lineup features this incredible orange, named and inspired by my favorite orange 1971 Series Land Rover. Her name was Mandarina and she was my Dad’s. We had a blast exploring the desert in it. So, a lot of great memories went into Mandarina’s name.”
Next, we have Kashmir, which reminds me of a soft sweater, perfect for those cooler fall evenings, snuggled up next to the fireplace. It’s the perfect soft, warm, and creamy white paint color to have in your fall palette.
“Anybody who has ever observed a Lotus flower emerging from a murky pond cannot fail to see the beauty of this exquisite plant. The flower always looks so clean and pure against the background of the dirty pond. Because of this, the lotus flower has come to be associated with purity and beauty in the religions of Buddhism and Hinduism.” – Lotus Flower Meaning.net
Carbon is a dark charcoal gray that can be dressed up or down. It can be casual or sophisticated and will play beautifully with all of the colors in the line. It’s one of the colors that I have personally been asking for, so I’m really happy it’s here!
Icelandic Mist is a cool pastel mint color that works great on those vintage pieces from yesteryear. For me, it’s a nostalgic color that brings up warm memories of happy kitchens.
Emerald City is a color many have been waiting for. It’s a stunning jewel-colored emerald green that I hope will remain as a permanent color!
Charleston Green is a dark green found in and on historical homes in Charleston, SC. It’s timeless and gorgeous!
Oyster is a pale gray, lighter than our Limestone I’m told, and I think it will be a wonderful choice for those that want a hint of color.
The new seasonal colors are currently available in my online shop in Quart and Pint sizes. And Quart sizes will be available in both of my stores. The 8oz size will be available soon.
