cool product of the month – yolo colorhouse

yolothis month’s cool product is ….drumroll please……. yolo colorhouse. what the heck is yolo colorhouse, you ask? well, in a nutshell, it’s environmentally friendly paint with no VOCs (the little volatile organic compounds that keep me up at night trying to figure out where to cut them out next). thankfully, yolo has discovered a way to eliminate them from their paint line. it seems that the big guys like benjamin moore, sherwin williams, and dunn edwards are following suit or are in the process of following suit as some of the bug guys’ paints are still labeled low VOC but i’m sure in the near term the major manufacturers will have no VOC paint offerings.

why do i like yolo? i first met one of the owners, virgina young, at the west coast green expo in san francisco about a year and a half ago (don’t bother calling ms. virginia and saying david doucette recommended your product because that was a well attended expo and i didn’t do anything stupid to leave a lasting impression). i liked what she had to say and really like the company’s philosophy. at the time, no one had no VOC paint, they were on the cutting edge and created yolo for that sole purpose. they also have a great and informative website that describes who they are and what they do and as well as lots of info on their product offerings.

i’ve been waiting for the right project to use the product on and finally found it in our westbourne project which just received the first coat of paint on the walls. it’s looking beautiful and i really like yolo’s color pallette. no, they don’t have a bazillion colors like the big guys, but they also don’t need it. their color palette is diverse and finding a color to suit your needs shouldn’t be a problem.

depending on where you live, finding yolo paint may be a challenge, but don’t let that stop you (we all need a good challenge now and then). if you’re in the los angeles area, you can find them at livingreen in culver city or at cox paint center also in culver city. they also have a retail locator on their website and you can order online (see, that challenge wasn’t so bad).

i’m glad to have been able to finally use their product and very pleased with the results. as i move my business forward i’m looking to align myself with companies that are concerned with the environment and have an environmental message. i’m tickled yolo with yolo and hope you’ll check them out for your next project.
