What You'll Get
Before science was invented, going green used to mean chugging a 2-liter bottle of broccoli juice then spinning around a baseball bat for 30 seconds. Exercise a healthier expression of blue and yellow's love child with today's Groupon to Colori Eco Paint Boutique. Choose between the following options:
- For $30, you get $75 worth of eco-friendly paint and supplies.
- For $50, you get a one-hour in-home color consultation (a $100 value).
Colori's vibrant paint hues are created with eco-friendly recipes that nearly eliminate volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that can damage ozone layers and pollute indoor air. Low-VOC paints from Mythic (starting at $48.99/gallon) and C2 ($55/gallon) blend finely ground pigments into a plethora of vibrant colors to adorn walls and life-size plaster friezes of the first Arbor Day.
While sipping wine or tea from the in-store bar, shoppers can browse a rainbow of take-home chips from the store's free swatch stations, or watch technicians utilize the store's spectrophotometer to exactly match fabric swatches or pet-ferret fur colors to custom paint shades. Or, peruse the painting-supplies wall to pick out supple Corona Nassau brushes ($20.90–$37.80) that caress houses with sensitive interior skins with a combination of china bristles and ox-ear hair.
Opt for chroma advice and Colori owner Michelle Quaranta will give an in-home color consultation (a flat fee of $25 applies to consultations outside Chicago city limits). Taking into account each room's natural light, existing furniture, and favorite Monopoly piece, Michelle mixes a potent color cocktail during a one-hour paint pow-wow that can be used as a blueprint for future redecorations.
