This Collection is a fresh look at some of the objects and accoutrements of high society.Inspired by the elegant look and established decor once often used at dinner and cocktail parties, the materials have been reinterpreted to create something new. Chandeliers made of etched glasses, tablecloths made from intersecting lace ribbons, and garments inspired by the aesthetics of the furnishings combine to create a new atmosphere. Fashion design meets product design to craft a new look on a classic style.
“Color is one of the most powerful elements in design. Color is light and energy; the most effective door to emotion, yet the least expensive element to work with. By simply changing the color of a room, you can literally transform your life.
It’s a well-known fact that when all colors in the spectrum are combined together, they create white light. Therefore, when a paint color contains all of the colors in the spectrum (i.e. is “full spectrum”), the walls painted with that color will literally glow with luminosity. We also know that light is healing; so just imagine the power of a room painted with a Full Spectrum Paint!”
What Makes Full Spectrum Paints Special and Why are They More Luminous and Often Called “Magical & Healing”?
Since 1982, Ellen Kennon has been creating environments many have called “magical” and “healing”. One of the major reasons is through her use of color and light and her holistic approach to interior design. Ellen believes we were meant to live in a natural environment. By using the colors found in nature’s landscapes and simulating the lighting found in nature with the many pigments contained in each of her Full Spectrum Paints, she recreates the soothing tonic we receive from Mother Nature.
Each of our Full Spectrum Paint color formulas consists of the seven pigments found in the color spectrum. A room painted with a Full Spectrum Paint color creates a radiant atmosphere where the color is chameleon-like, i. e. constantly changing.

In a sense, you and I have always played in “adventure playgrounds.” We created a fort in the kitchen cabinets, jumped from couch to couch across oceans; we snuck out through a hole in the fence to a new world. We climbed trees and hid in bushes. We played in the mud and the rain. We chased each other, made secret worlds with our own language. We created spaces with whatever we could find around us. Some of us played in abandoned buildings, or barns, or vacant lots between buildings, used what we found and made up stories of our lives to be. We looked everywhere to find our space.
We made a children’s world in the city and in the country. Imagine, a place that provides all that, in the middle of a city. Here you go, hammers, saws, nails, wood, tires, rope, cloth, whatever you can find. Make it yours. You can change this playground right here, right now. You don’t have to make an appointment. You can walk or ride your bike, and there are people here to help and encourage you. What if you had that space? What if every child had that space?
More handheld goodness: it may be autumn in Brazil right now, but last summer’s sensation, spicy flower ice creams, can still make it big this summer in Europe and North America. Pioneering this delicacy is ice cream shop Mil Frutas (Portuguese for a thousand fruits), which sells exotic mixes of fruits and spices that have resulted in flavors such as apricot & thyme, watermelon & ginger, Sicilian lemon & rosemary, pineapple & cayenne pepper, green grape & basil.
Absolute hit this season was the creamy ‘capuchinha flower ice cream’ – slightly spicy, sweetened with honey and sprinkled with poppy seed. Sounds good! Want to get in on this game? Visit Mil Frutas’ Jardim Bot���nico shop or their Ipanema caf���, or better yet, partner with them to bring their ice cream or even their shops to the rest of the world.
