PPG Paints (Pittsburgh) and the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation have teamed up to release a color palette inspired by the famed architect and designer, whose 150th birthday was June 8.

“The PPG Paints brand Frank Lloyd Wright color collection consists of a blend of Wright’s carefully selected palette from the 1950s with additional modern colors and coordinating interior stain colors, showcasing how harmonizing the palette is even many years after its inception,” said Dee Schlotter, PPG senior color marketing manager. “Even the colors chosen more than 60 years ago stand strong today and coordinate with modern textiles and materials—a true testament to Wright’s timeless design sense.”

The majority of the palette is made up of colors one might expect: earth tones. Colors include reds (Cherokee Red, Wright Deep Rust and Crushed Cinnamon), greens (Wright Green Olive and Woolen Vest) and browns (Wright Oak Bark and Fig Branches).

New to the palette, the company says, are Moth Gray, a brown-gray blend reminiscent of metals; Violet Verbena, a mix of purple, gray and blue that emulates its namesake flower and is PPG Paints' color of the year for 2017; and Antiquity, a butterscotch beige.

Interior stains also make an appearance with Deft colors Golden Oak, Spanish Oak and Pickling.

“At PPG, we find inspiration everywhere, but especially in nature—just as Wright did,” Schlotter said. “The colors combine inspiration from some of Wright’s most iconic designs, such as the Taliesin West and Fallingwater homes, with modern hues such as PPG Paints colors Blue Shamrock and Debonaire, helping consumers and designers to create harmony between humanity and the environment.”
