Bea: This year in Home Décor our increasing sensitivity to the environment is inspiring the colors of natures foliage. The new paint pallet is filled with the range of natural greens. Cooler than in past years greens take on a blue and grassy base with a calming environmental influence. The year ahead we will see a greater use of dark, rich and botanical greens. But all nature inspired tones are looking great rooms of gorgeous in earth browns, ocean blues, and deep floral shades like rich purple reds, oranges and corals too.
I am here today to find out how using the latest color trends can be better for the environment. Hi Melanie.
Melanie: Hi Bea, come on give me a hand.
Bea: Sure! Melanie, beautiful greens and other earth tones are quite trendy right now and I understand that environmentally friendly green paints are too.
Melanie: Yes, VOC emission free paint, it is wonderful.
Melanie: Volatile Organic Compound they are pollutants in paint which affect the quality of the air we breath essentially VOCs are emitted as a gas into our homes when paint dries and it irritates especially young people or even older people.
Bea: Well, all of us who wants to have odors and fumes if you do not have to these paints do not smell at all.
Melanie: Well exactly, and you know something else, VOCs contribute to smog formation you know when you a choose paint that is no VOC not only are you helping the air in your home but of course also for those around you as well.
Bea: But tell me, do these emission free paints look like the other paints?
Melanie: Oh absolutely, when you make a responsible paint choice you are absolutely not compromising any quality, appearance, application in any way, shape or form. I found three beautiful finishes, cashmere, chamois and shantung and the great thing is not only do they look good they are really silky and easy to apply. You want to try some?
Bea: I would love to.
Melanie: All right let us do that.
Bea: Looking forward to that part.
Melanie: Oh you know what? Maybe not right there, let me see if we can, oh here.
Bea: Oh great.
Melanie: Give it a try on this.
Bea: Wow, it is so smooth. You know Melanie I think that thing responsible about the environment is going to help us breath easier all year round.
Melanie: Absolutely, and with the beautiful color like that cleaning up the air and bringing a little bit of Mother Nature inside.
