Enjoying the Results of my VOC-Free Paint Job

Christine WilsonChristine Wilson is a financial analyst living in central Pennsylvania. She has a passion for environmental issues and, as a hobby, enjoys incorporating economical green design ideas into her many home improvement projects. 

It's been more than a week since I finished painting my master bedroom with Olympic Premium interior latex paint, and I have to say that I'm loving the results. It looks rich and lustrous, mainly due to the color choices (wall: Bristlecone; trim: Dogwood Blossom). There was a mild paint odor during and after the painting took place, but it was nothing close to the noxious paint fumes from days gone by. Now, on this lazy Saturday, I am able to enjoy the fruits of my labor.

Olympic Premium Eggshell Paint in Bristlecone 

If you're looking for a gorgeous medium brown color with pink undertones, this is your color.  As for the trim, I've fallen in love with the Dogwood Blossom shade, and I can imagine myself using it for all of the wood trim in my home.
