A Fresh Start

We’ve blossomed from the roots of Urbane Bronze into a restorative shade that creates a clean slate. “The essence of Evergreen Fog was inspired by the world’s ability to adapt and regenerate,” says Director of Color Marketing, Sue Wadden. “It inspires us to begin again, and what better place to start than in our homes.” 

Much like nature, this color’s natural appeal invites the quiet beauty of the outdoors into our modern living spaces. So, as we begin again, we’re also surrounding ourselves with nourishing hues that keep us focused on what’s important.

Wrapped in Comfort

Even though Evergreen Fog’s organic appeal is fresh and new, it also feels familiar. There’s a touch of nostalgia to this soft green that can balance, beautify and blanket a room in comfort – especially during a time when homes have become our havens. Use this mid-tone neutral to warm up your space and welcome all the coziness that follows.

Any Time, Any Place

One of our favorite things about Evergreen Fog? It can be used anywhere, in any amount. Whether it’s indoors or out, a full-colored wall, or a simple accent, this soothing green is big on versatility. While you can use it wherever, we love saving it for spaces where we seek relaxation and comfort in our everyday.

Perfectly Paired

When coordinating this hue with other colors, all you have to do is look to the great outdoors. “A serene hue like Evergreen Fog feels so natural and effortless we knew it needed a palette that carried the same sense of ease,” says Wadden. “When paired with warm, organic neutrals, you get a stunning collection that celebrates the simplistic beauty of nature.”

  1. Can you paint a tile backsplash ? It goes around my counters and behind my stove. It is so outdated but to remove and replace would be messy and costly.
