Our Story

We’re on a mission to make paint shopping easier and more inspiring, so you can create a home you love.

Clare | High Quality Paint | Perfect Eggshell

We’re challenging the status quo of paint

Paint has the power to completely transform a space and that’s exciting. But the first step — paint shopping — is universally known as a headache. Anyone who’s shopped for paint knows the process can be confusing, overwhelming, and downright painful. We believe shopping for paint should be a joy, not a hassle, so we took on an archaic industry to reinvent the entire experience. We’ve created a better way, an expertly curated color palette, the highest quality paint, no-mess, no-fuss color sampling, and the best painting supplies all delivered to your door. Plus, guidance to get you going and keep you inspired along the way.

Clare | Paint Samples | Perfect Color Swatches

A selection of brilliant colors, curated by an expert

Choosing paint colors for your home is hard, especially when there are thousands of them (who truly needs 50 shades of beige?). Our founder — an interior designer — reviewed hundreds of color formulations with an expert eye to bring you a perfect palette of 55 timeless colors you’ll love. We’ve also created technology to guide you, because sometimes we all need a little help. Enter Clare Color Genius, an interior design-based color consultation paired with a high-tech algorithm that will recommend the perfect color for your space. We’ve done all the groundwork, so you’ll never have to sort through an endless sea of paint chips again.
