Changing environments at the Ace Hotel with Comex paint, Curated by Arkitip
REPORTED BY Arkitip, Inc., 1, February 2012

One scarcely realizes how much color can affect one’s mood until you happen to find yourself in a room where the paint is actually something other than white. Maybe you visit a friend’s house who is a fantastic interior decorator, or travel to the Caribbean, India or Latin America where they embrace dramatic color. Even a slight change in color can positively impact your mood, making you more productive, relaxed, even happy.

Comex partners with Arkitip to conduct a study in color and with Hotel partner, Ace Hotel Palm Springs, the partnership is complete. Five rooms at the Ace Hotel Palm Springs were repainted using 3 color combinations provided by Comex based on the color schemes presented in the Comex trend color books. We invited five media reporters will stay for a long weekend switching rooms every night to experience the color in each room.

As customary we created a video to document the process and share the results.


Many thanks to The Comex Group, The Ace Hotel and all of the journalists that attended.
