Guggenheim paint colors for your walls.

Screen shot 2011-10-14 at 3.20.42 PM
If you're like most people, you go to museums to see the art hanging on the walls, and not the actual paint on the walls. But did you know that a lot of effort goes into getting that wall color just right? The goal is to highlight the works of art without competing with them, and the Guggenheim Museum has decided to share some of its secrets with you. Fine Paints of Europe, a company based in Woodstock, VT, is now offering Guggenheim Paints. The collection includes the original colors chosen for the museum by Frank Lloyd Wright, as well as the favorite colors of generations of Guggenheim curators. And if you're a fan of fan decks, this one is pretty cool.

This is pretty cool. I certainly agree that the colors of the wall do matter to perfectly emphasize a beautiful artwork. This is not just true with museums but also in simple home galleries and displays. Thank you for sharing this!
