About Us

YOLO Colorhouse was born out of a need for healthier paint and better color. We like to think of ourselves as the “indie” paint company – we are dedicated to making paint that is better for us and the environment. We are dedicated to making beautiful color solutions simpler and we are dedicated to doing business in a more sustainable way.

YOLO Colorhouse is a premium, zero VOC interior paint line with select palettes:

The Earth’s Color Collection Inside is 49 colors inspired by our natural world and designed to flow beautifully from space to space.

The Color of Hope palette is a collection of 36 clean, bold colors designed to energize the human spirit and to create positive and inspiring spaces.

The Sprout Collection is a collection of 7 fresh, playful, and gender-neutral colors that create dreamy and contemporary spaces for life’s newcomers.

Virginia Young (YO) and Janie Lowe (LO) believed the world could be more colorful and less volatile when they founded YOLO Colorhouse in 2005. Click HERE to view the founders story.
