Palettes

Discover distinct color combinations—all inspired by NYC.

As we walk through our city, we find creativity in each borough. We find obscure color capsules in every place we look. Shades change from day to night and move over each dwelling in waves of color, reciting stories about the inhabitants and art that reside in each neighborhood—your neighborhood. The city’s distinct charms and homes spur design intuition. Here, we find the tones to mix and match, to use and love, with Pratt & Lambert color palettes that follow the genuine feel of our city, your city—New York City.

Like a palette brought to light on the runways of fashion week or in the lauded architecture that envelops the city, base colors and their supporting hues are discovered and celebrated—in beautiful juxtapose.

Whether you discover them during rigorous adventures or through routine day-to-day activity, colors and shades effortlessly collide in unexpected harmony and consistency. The contrasts may be subtle, or they may be bold and intrepid. Throughout this city, there are patterns, textures, and images to spark new design aspirations—to reveal what makes New York City a force for image-motivated creators.

Here, we offer a way to cherish every design project, to discover enthusiasm in the community, landmarks, and social hot spots. Like the aesthetic that comes through in the iconic Brooklyn Bridge, we identify colors similar to the towers of limestone, granite, and Rosendale cement. We find beauty in the every day, a muse everywhere we look.

The exhilaration that is NYC is unmistakably exciting yet undeniably vast, but you can find it all right here. Here, we invite you to collect the colors that resonate with you—and your city.
