My mom turns 88 this February. To many of my family and friends, she is known affectionately as Grandma Nancy. She has a great outlook on life and unbelievable energy and enthusiasm. Any new adventure is to be embraced in life and is always “super colossal” and any concern we have for her welfare is met with “pish posh!” In addition, she has embraced a somewhat minimalistic lifestyle. I’ll come by for a visit and she’ll comment on some item she has carted off to the local consignment store or I’ll notice another closet emptied of its contents. I often say to her, “soon your townhouse will be down to a single piece of Japanese calligraphy on the wall, a low table with a flower in a vase and a futon.” She just smiles and laughs!
I had an engineering class years ago in college where we discussed the concept of entropy – the natural, gradual decline of a system into disorder. The concept has always stuck with me. I find it’s the reason material things always need to be repaired or replaced. My mom, in her own way, is seeking to address this dilemma by reducing what she owns. So now, each time I consider bringing some new material object into my life, I think, “am I willing to maintain and care for this item?” Sometimes the answer is “you bet” and others “not so much” and I put it back on the shelf.

greenspace has big news in our paint department. Colorhouse, our beloved paint supplier whose beautiful color palettes have been gracing our customers’ homes since we opened in 2006, has gone out of business. Colorhouse was a great partner and we valued our friendships with the Colorhouse team over the years. We are sad to see them go.

Now for the good news! Dunn-Edwards has been manufacturing Colorhouse paint for many years. Under their licensing agreement, Colorhouse was able to custom label Dunn-Edwards paint and sell it to eco-retailers around the country. Now we will be buying the exact same paint, but with the Dunn-Edwards label.
By working directly with Dunn-Edwards, we will not only be able to offer their ultra-premium, low odor, zero-VOC interior paint. We will also be able to carry their ultra-low VOC exterior paints. Dunn-Edwards also offers a velvet sheen for interiors – something many of you have requested.

We know this seems like a big change, but please don’t worry! We will continue to be able to make your favorite Colorhouse colors with Dunn-Edwards paint, just as we always have. In addition, you will have access to Dunn-Edwards’ own extensive color palette, plus color-matching for most other name-brand paint colors, all in the same zero-VOC high-quality paint you’ve come to rely on from greenspace.
