513 Paint Shop

There’s something so exciting about revamping your own space. From choosing paint colors to investing in classic furniture pieces, your home should reflect who you are and what you love. The colors you pick play a huge role in defining your space, which makes getting quality paint top priority.

 

Just a year ago, we came across 513 Paint Shop, a Hong Kong-boutique paint shop that offers environmentally friendly paint products without VOC – the chemical compound that induces irritation, headaches and other side effects. Eunice, co-founder of 513 Paint shop was kind enough to teach us how to create our own printed napkins, and design our own cushion covers. Since then, they’ve been busy working on a brand new collection inspired by the natural elements. With a total of 25 gorgeous shades, their collection entitled ‘5’ officially launched on the 25th of January, and we dropped in to find out what it’s all about.

Environmentally-Friendly Paint

Inspired by the vision of providing homeowners and designers health-conscious paints, ‘5’ is the paint shop’s third collection. It started off with a set of five colors in metallic shades of gold, silver and bronze, however swiftly the collection began to grow. Now it encompasses not only metals, but also earth, fire, water and vegetal. In a span of around 10 months, they began to develop the collection’s 25 shades. Each element is represented with five different shades.

The paint collection goes beyond bringing natural elements into our interiors. With each color portraying the visual characteristics of the elements, ‘5’ also aims at creating a sensory experience. Through a collaboration with various artisans, each of the colors are given a life of its own, represented by the works of candle-makers, tea experts, ceramic artists and even a specialty restaurant.

Dreamy Colors and Sensual Names

Taking almost a year to complete, the collection is well thought out. Each of the 25 shades are designed to work with interiors, particularly walls and furniture.  With each shade given a satisfying and unique name (like Blue Poppy Cake, or the insta-dreamy Sunset in Angkor), the collection not only offers a chance to color our spaces with inspiring hues, but also taps into the collective human experience of living through the five senses, namely sight, sound, touch, smell and taste.

It’s hard to pick a favorite, with so many color combinations possible. We thank Eunice for sharing her time with us to introduce their latest collection.
