Historic Paint Color Tones with Farrow & Ball

Exterior paint colors often perplex us when it comes to choosing a tone appropriate for the architectural style of a building. In celebration of National Preservation Month, we are debuting exterior paint palettes by architectural style, featuring Farrow & Ball paint colors. 

At 5-7pm, we'll have a reception with special guest Tina LaLima of Farrow & Ball. You can explore each palette and even create your own. 

*Join at 4pm for a technical presentation that qualifies for a CEU and a technical Q&A period.
