DDIF Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Where can I find the recommended color palette for facade grants?

A: MSW’s Design Committee recommends colors found in Color Journey’s Color Direction Exterior Palette by Lambert & Platt. Lambert and Platt paint can be purchased locally at D & S Hardware. If you prefer a different paint brand or prefer to purchase your paint elsewhere, no worries! Anywhere that sells paint will be able to color match using the Lambert & Platt palette.
