Lowe’s Brand Reveals First Color of the Year


Stainmaster Paint, an exclusive Lowe’s brand, has selected its inaugural Color of the Year, which it describes as a “fresh foray into the realm of color.”

English Green reportedly promises to “redefine your perception of paint and transform your space into a canvas of nature-inspired elegance.” The rich hue also reportedly bridges the gap between bold and versatile, inviting the outdoors inside.

Lowe’s explains that English Green can be paired with warm terracotta, luxurious gold, sweet caramel, and cool shades of blue, plum and grey.

When selecting English Green as its Color of the Year, Stainmaster reportedly considered trending hues and the impact of color on everyday living. English Green was deemed a calming, soothing tone that evokes growth, renewal, tranquility and natural beauty in any space.

“Lowe’s and Stainmaster are giving customers the insight, inspiration and confidence to refresh their homes in the new year with English Green,” said Monica Reese, Lowe's Director of private brands style.

“In addition to offering an array of on-trend colors, Stainmaster paint has great washability, especially in the matte sheen finish, making it both fashionable and functional for life's toughest messes.”

According to the company’s release, Stainmaster Performance Interior Paint and Primer helps protect against stains, mold and mildew with excellent scrub resistance. It is backed by a lifetime stain-resistant limited warranty, and the company says it is built to hold up against everyday life messes and make clean-up easy.

The brand offers three paint finishes including matte, satin and semi-gloss sheens. Other than English Green, it can also be color-matched to any desired shade.
