PPG Porter Paints today announced the launch of the Nashville Color Collection, a new palette of 75 colors representing the significant shades of the Nashville landscapes. Encompassing Nashville’s bright, lively cityscapes and the incredible shades of the southern seasons, the palette combines the neutral colors found in traditional bungalows with the bold shades of the area’s modern communities.
The Nashville Color Collection brings to life the landmarks that helped shape Nashville—from the beautiful notes and scene on Broadway to Nashville’s landscape, rich in history and tradition. Every color in the palette has a story ranging from the musically inspired “Opry Gold” to “Glutch Green,” inspired by the Glutch neighborhood—the first LEED certified southern community.
“The palette represents the musical roots of Nashville with a mix of saturated, vibrant hues inspired by the city’s contemporary architecture to create a collection of colors familiar to the Nashville area,” said Troy Harper, PPG Porter Paints color consultant, contributor to the palette and Nashville resident. “The colors in this collection allow homeowners to bring the inspiring shades that make the area unique into their homes.”
Illustrating the area’s most recognizable hues, palette color “Cafe Blue” draws inspiration from the famous Blue Bird Cafe, a popular venue for up and coming country music stars, while other colors like “LEEDing Green” are associated with the city’s recent sustainable achievements.
“The palette was developed to encompass the authenticity of the Nashville area,” added Harper. “We took elements commonly used in Nashville residences such as white kitchen cabinets, slate and hardwood flooring and developed the palette to seamlessly correspond or provide contrast with the undertones found in these materials to fit a homeowner’s personal style.”
Developed by local PPG architectural coatings representatives and color experts, the Nashville Color Collection is part of PPG Porter Paints Voice of Color Program. The collection is available at PPG Porter Paints stores in any of the PPG Porter Paints’ paint lines, including Silken Touch® – a super premium quality paint that offers exceptional coverage and stain release – and Hi-Hide® – a premium quality paint that offers excellent hiding and durability.
