A ways back, I featured a post about American Clay’s least popular colors. In this entry, I’m taking one of the colors from that list and combining it with some others in our standard line to give it a new life. Here we go…
Mojave in Loma
Mojave is a soft, earthy red that coordinates closely with Benjamin Moore’s 1175 Lake House. It is our lowest-selling color of the 40+ options in our standard line. These following three colors are all new versions that contain Mojave:
This brown was created by combining the equivalent of one color pack each of Mojave and Savannah Moss with one 50-lb bag of Loma. The color is rich, but not dark, and looks quite similar to Benjamin Moore 1027 Firewood. It reminds me a bit of the chocolate-colored walls on this House Beautiful post that I came across today (kind of a fun page – it’s a quiz where you try to guess the paint name).
I’m a sucker for a beautiful orange, and I completely fell in love with this shade. The color was created by combining the equivalent of 1 color pack each of Mojave and Tucson Gold with one 50-lb bag of Loma plaster. The color looks very similar to Benjamin Moore 1168 Wilderness Cabin.
I don’t receive many requests for purples, but the rest of our staff insists that there are a substantial number of calls seeking purple options. This one is a cross in lightness between Benjamin Moore 2109-50 Elephant Gray and 2109-40 Smoked Oyster.
One old color, three new ways…If there’s a color you’d like to see reinvented, send the request my way.
