"These paints are like fine perfumes. They change and flatter each room individually, as perfumes are particular to each woman that wears them. The paints always flatter the space they are applied, they are never the same, but always stunning, and that is the talent and art of Ellen Kennon and her paints! "

-Marc Charbonnet, Interior Designer, NYC

Enjoy the beautiful interior design projects of renowned New York designer Marc Charbonnet, who uses our paints on all of his fabulous projects!

Jon Vaccari's New Orleans Showroom

We created a special palette for New Orleans interior designer Jon Vaccari for his fabulous new showroom at 1912 St. Charles Avenue. Jon used "JV Cloud White" on everything (ceilings, walls and millwork) in his showroom as seen in the photos below.

("JV Cloud White" on everything: Ceilings are flat, walls eggshell and millwork is semi-gloss.)

("The great thing about full spectrum paints is the way they look different in each setting. JV Cloud White in both photos above, show how different one color can look!)

("JV Cloud White" on all painted surfaces in the den in the residence above the showroom.)

Our more vibrant colors from our Magical Gem & Summer Brights Palettes were created especially for renowned artist Hunt Slonem's exhibit at the Ogden Museum in New Orleans:

The photos below are of rooms in Hunt Slonem's studio and plantations that were featured in his best-selling book, Pleasure Palaces: the Art and Homes of Hunt Slonem (book excerpt from An Interview with Hunt Slonem - "Q: Your paintings, like your studios, are filled with such vivid colors. How do you incorporate them into your homes? A: I have been trying to work with historically correct colors for the houses, and I've been doing a lot of research on that. I have a wonderful person, Ellen Kennon, who makes full spectrum of paints in St. Francisville, Louisiana, and she's been helping me with accurate Louisiana colors. Interestingly, Lakeside Plantation is painted pink. A number of great old houses were painted in colors. I'm trying to spruce up the third floor of Lakeside with Ellen.")
