As if to bring a breath of fresh Spring air into our homes after a very challenging past year, comes the unique decorative paint finish known as Lazure. This award-winning finish known in Europe for decades and increasingly worldwide, has been used for the contemporary, healing and regenerative qualities it brings to any interior space. Different from other visually textural paint finishes that absorb light, Lazure subtly changes hue as the atmospheric blushing of analogous colors move across the wall. The glazes are translucent, so the light of the white walls underneath creates a luminosity in the colors that is breathtakingly beautiful. Lazure is almost as if one is painting with light as pigment. Imagine . . . an interior space may have a soft earthy yellow gradually transitioning into a warm midday terracotta tone before finally settling into a tranquil dusty rose. Color is the nature and nourishment of the human soul and as such we want to use it in our homes in a way that reflects the luminous, quality found both in nature and our inner life. Lazure supports a living, breathing, dynamic relationship between color and the body, soul and spirit of the human being.
