PPG PITTSBURGH® Paints launched the Up North Color Collection, a new palette of 25 colors representing the significant shades of the Up North region. Created by local interior designers and paint store owners, the palette captures the relaxed beauty and uniqueness of the area, enabling homeowners to bring favorite landscapes into their homes to enjoy every day.

“Residents and visitors of the Up North region create vivid memories and feelings associated with the natural colors found here,” said Tom Bischoff, owner of Northwood Paint and Supply and contributor to the palette. “Every shade in the palette reflects something that is ours. From the sand dunes to the vineyards, the collection is defined by the local landscape and identifies the unique moodiness and beauty found here.”

Interior designers Rita Whaley, Allied ASID Member, and Ann Freckelton, ASID, of Design2, LLC, said the palette was inspired by the surroundings of the region. From the Beach Glass colors, a soft green, fresh blue and pale yellow all named for the smoothed glass found on the sandy shorelines, to Morel Mushrooms, a muted brown, every color in the palette has a story. Much like the casual, relaxed lifestyle of the Up North region, the organic palette includes soft and rich colors such as Land of Delight, a watercolor blue, and Farmer’s Market Red, a bold, saturated shade.

The colors were selected by area designers with the goal of bringing the timeless beauty of nature indoors. “Homes in the Up North region often have large windows allowing the scenes of nature to flow right inside the home,” said Lynn Pettyjohn, Allied ASID Member, designer and contributor to palette. “This palette allows what we see outside to continue right onto the walls and fill the room with warm, current tones that take on the hues of their surroundings.”

The palette includes popular shades mixed with the influence of the regional water, landscape and natural components, according to designer Linda Dean Stallman, ASID. She said the Up North colors are heavily saturated with deep tones creating a look unique to the area.

The Up North Palette is part of PPG Pittsburgh Paints' THE VOICE OF COLOR® program and is available at Complete Paint and Supplies in Harbor Springs and Petoskey and Northwood Paint and Supply in Traverse City. Contributors to the palette include Tom and Gwen Bischoff, owners of Northwood Paint and Supply; Chris Smrekar, owner of Complete Paint and Supplies; and interior designers Rita Whaley, Allied ASID Member, and Ann Freckelton, ASID, of Design2, LLC; Lynn Pettyjohn, Allied ASID Member, of Lynnteriors; and Linda Dean Stallman, ASID, of Interior Design Inc.
