From Arizona Clay to Zucchini Flower, Dunn-Edwards Paints has infused its Perfect Palette system with 300 new colors.

Addition of the Then, Now & Forever collection brings the company's Perfect Palette line to 1,996 colors, the California paint maker says.

Historically accurate Southwestern colors complement new hues that are popular today, Dunn-Edwards says of its new collection.

Dunn-Edwards calls the collection "the most complete, well-researched palette for any project."

Old and New
Within the new collection, 142 colors are historically accurate hues inspired by architecture of the American West, the company says.
The historical collection was created with the Architectural Resources Group, an architecture firm focused on historical preservation and renovation, and draws on more than 300 years of Southwestern architectural history, according to Dunn-Edwards.
The new system also includes 158 popular, trending colors from across the spectrum. The palette offers a greater range of grays, browns, blues and orange, the company said.


The new additions bring Dunn-Edwards' Perfect Palette to nearly 2,000 colors.

"We discovered that new trending colors worked well to create a full palette that also blended with the historic colors," said color forecast expert Mark Woodman, who helped review the collection.

Dunn-Edwards has developed a variety of materials and tools for designers and other professionals to search and use the expanded collection. The resources include InstaColor, a new mobile app, and ColorView, a color rendering tool that allows users to upload a picture of a room and paint it virtually.

Professionals can download color swatches into an expanded range of programs, while Color-Ark Home consumers can, for the first time, store their color purchases in an online database for future reference.
