Orange You Glad?

It's so pretty and bright.

Pumpkins are popping out of the ground and we can’t think of a better time to talk about the color orange.  House Beautiful just did an article on this very topic (Ace Paint, “Yuma,” was mentioned, of course) and it inspired me to step out of 5th Street Ace’s back office and pull some of our favorite shades from the paint-swatch rack and have a photo shoot.  The background is Mythic Paint color “Lucky Chance,”  the two squares in the middle ground are Ace Paint’s Colors For Your Life line “Soleil” (left) and “Brilliant Orange” (right) and the multiple swatches are also Colors For Your Life shades as follows:

Left column, from top to bottom:

  • Bird’s Eye Maple
  • Yuma
  • Summer Solstice


  • Cantaloupe
  • Orange Beach
  • Tequila Sunrise
  • Crushed Orange


  • Golden Dream
  • Spun Gold
  • Casa de Oro
  • Golden City

Incidently, Mythic Paint is sold at our 5th Street Ace and Waverly Ace stores, Ace Paint is in all the stores, and we also carry Benjamin Moore paint at Waverly Ace, though we can do paint matching with any manufacturer.
