Handcrafted Paint Colors
While there are countless companies with the ability to make spaces look well decorated, Gretchen Schauffler's success is in her ability to make people feel good with her artistic colors. Gretchen creates all Devine colors on a canvas just like Impressionist artists have done for centuries. She then curates them into color collections to recreate the simplistic emotional reactions we have to the beauty of colors in nature, where no color is out of place. With a bold color philosophy that says, “there are no bad colors, only bad color combinations”, she reminds people that there are only six colors to the rainbow. "We can only mix and match these colors so many times. I only create the ones that are meant to be on walls." In the last 18 years her ability to use color to change rooms from being well decorated to a feeling of wellbeing is her artistry and the mission behind Devine Color Consulting and all Devine Color products.
Gretchen created a unique and patented Discovery Cars design which allows you to see color relationships in new way. Looking at the colors and through the cut out back and forth sparks the brain to connect color memories and experiences with what you see so that you connect to the colors you love and avoid those you don't. sooner and faster.
Once you feel a natural attraction to certain colors, you can order 8x11 Deluxe Swatches. Made with real paint in our most popular sheen, Delicate, they are large enough to show you the color.

Look at them only on walls, but on a sofa, on the floor, or a kitchen counter so that you get a full understanding of how the paint color interacts on all levels.
