Different regions of the country have different colors that make them unique. From the icy blues of the alpine mountains to the warm, vibrant colors of the beaches, each region has its own color palette. Just as each landscape contains different colors, so do the interiors of each landscapes’ homes. Think of the navy blue and white stripes and nautical colors of Northeastern homes or the dusty hues and turquoise accents of Southwestern homes.

Paint company PPG has paid homage to these regional differences in color, both in the landscape and in the home, with Regional Paint Color Collections. They’ve curated paint collections based on a few unique regions to best suit the region your home resides in, from the coasts to the heartland. Inspired by their Regional Paint Color Collections, we’ve curated our own collections of Gallery MAR art to harmonize with the colors of your home’s region.
