A deeply experienced perspective is what Philip Reno brings to the world of color design. Philip spent the first eighteen years of his career as a master painter, faux finisher, and color consultant. During this time he accumulated first-hand experience and observed the intricacies of paint color.
"The medium of architectural paint is extremely complex. The lighting and room dimensions are unique in any given situation, making it difficult to predict with certainty how any particular color will reveal itself in that environment."
From 1997 until 2014 Philip owned and operated G&R Paint Company, San Francisco's premier retail color and paint destination. During that time he developed a palette of colors second to none in their luminosity and sophistication.
"Working with thousands of retail and commercial clients helped me to realize the magnitude of the difficulty that DIY's and professionals both face when it comes to choosing the "perfect color" for any given project."
Currently Philip is focused on the manufacturing side of the business, as a consultant to The Coatings Alliance, manufacturers of C2 Paint.
"My years of experience in all phases of the paint industry have helped me see it from a unique perspective. This vantage point helps me ensure that Philip's Perfect Colors will always be produced in the most innovative high quality products available anywhere."
