18th-Century Hues

The restoration of George Washington’s home in Mount Vernon (the other one, in Virginia) has inspired a new line of paints: 30 shades used in the actual restoration, plus 90 others inspired by period artifacts. The Mount Vernon Color Collection by Fine Paints of Europe is available in a complete range of odorless acrylic, traditional alkyd, and low-VOC formulations for interior and exterior trim use, $96 a gallon (with a ten-percent discount), at Greeley Home & Hardware Company in Chappaqua. What’s more, a portion of the proceeds of the sale of these paints is donated to Mount Vernon for the continuing restoration and maintenance of this historic national treasure.
