Bring all the things you love about Hawai‘i—sunshine, ocean breezes, tropical foliage and local cuisine—into your home with the power of paint, creating a space radiating in color and personality.

“Color is important as it sets the mood or feeling within any room in your home,” shares Aaron Kouchi of City Mill, a locally owned hardware store.
