Nell Hill’s Paint Line: Meadow

If you have followed along with me over the last couple years, you know that one of my absolute favorite colors is green. I find myself drawn to this lovely hue year-round and in all its brilliant forms. From restful soft shades to bright pops that bring energy and life to a space, there is always an appropriate spot for a green accent. As we developed our new paint line colors, I knew I wanted to add another green to join the iconic Mary Carol Hedgeapple hue that is so beloved. After trying to sneak at least five lovely green tints into the line because I couldn’t pick a favorite, Meadow emerged.

Nell Hill’s Paint Line: Ward Parkway Brick

The language of color is complex and can be different for each person. The way we view and relate to color is influenced by our experiences. Creating our paint line has been an exciting challenge that has required me to dig deep into what color means to me and what it can bring to the world of home design.

Nell Hill’s Paint Line: Prairie Rose

When I was creating colors for our Nell Hill’s paint line, I knew I wanted to find shades that were timeless and could adapt to any home. I also (perhaps selfishly) wanted to bring some of my favorite hues from my life and turn them into paint colors that could be enjoyed by all! Growing up, when asked for my favorite color, the answer was always pink! All of the best things in life were pink like sweet cotton candy, mouth-watering bubblegum, and my dress-up ballerina leotards and tutus (which my good-natured younger brother was often forced into during dress up time). Pink was a happy color, full of life and love – it was sugar and spice and everything nice! While my favorite color has changed throughout the years – like my four-year-old says, why *not* have a new favorite color every day? – my soft spot for shades of preppy pink has not faded. Now that I’m grown up, why not make my former Barbie dreamhouse dreams come true through our paint line?
