This was my first time using Clare paint, and I had a great experience. The paint quality itself was on par with Benjamin Moore's Aura, which hithertofore had been my "go to" high end paint of choice. The company values, the Black female leadership, the lower price, the personalized customer service, and the relief of not having so many colors to choose from, launched this paint into my #1 choice for paint from now on. I love bold and saturated and happy colors, Make Waves was honestly a bit more subtle than I'd usually choose, but I've been thrilled with the result. I used it in our mudroom which gets a lot of light at different times of the day, and the paint changes its vibe from blues, to greens, to greys, throughout the day, but retains the feeling of bridging sophisticated with retro with cheerful. It's the perfect color to have as a "passing through" room because it works both with the light pinks and greys of the kitchen, with the darker greens of the office room -- both rooms you can see from the mudroom. I can't wait to do my next Clare paint color!
