Look whose palette is one with nature.

Fallingwater®, named by the American Institute of Architects in 1991 as "the best all-time work of American Architecture," was in need of a paint job. One that would restore the historic landmark's original beauty, and honor Frank Lloyd Wright's dedication to blending architecture with nature.

Using an in-depth color analysis that was performed by Fallingwater, color experts, and Pittsburgh Paints’ Research and Development Team, Pittsburgh Paints was able to develop the color cards that give Fallingwater its new “old look.”
“Color was very important in conveying Frank Lloyd Wright’s aesthetic of organic architecture as a unified whole. He drew from two sources in determining his palette of a given project; the nature of the site and the nature of the building materials,” said Lynda Waggoner, vice president of the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy, and director of Fallingwater.

“At Fallingwater, Wright employed both a limited palette of color and a limited number of materials in his desire to create an organic and integrated whole,” Waggoner added.

Consumers who want to bring a little Fallingwater into their homes are in luck. Pittsburgh Paints developed a special, commercially available, palette of Fallingwater inspired colors. These 13 shades have been culled from the fabrics, walls, furniture, and surrounding landscape of Wright’s historic home and are authenticated by Fallingwater.

“Pittsburgh Paints is proud to offer the Fallingwater inspired color palette because it honors Wright’s dedication to blending architecture and nature,” said Tom Dougherty, marketing manager, Pittsburgh Paints. “Homeowners who want to take Wright’s ‘one with nature’ philosophy even further, can also use these shades with Pittsburgh Paints’ Pure Performance Paint, which is environmentally friendly.”
