Vintage 1889 Chicago Building: Ready for “Period” Color Makeover

A post-“Great Fire” building in Chicago is about to get a historical paint color makeover. I was first contacted to bid for the repainting of the façade of this building ten months ago. From the start, I understood that changing the color scheme of the building to a historically more authentic palette was a very important concern to the owners of the building.

For different reasons, the decision to act on the project was delayed for many months. In August of this year, our company was re-contacted by the condominium board and finally chosen to execute the exterior painting of the façade of this historical building. Having assessed that the board strongly desired a change in the paint colors, we immediately convened a meeting with a number of the owners. Our Color and Concept Consultant led the meeting.

Most of the owners who attended had given considerable thought to the colors they did not like presently and what they would like to see. Some had gone out into the neighborhood and come up with other buildings they liked and wanted us to see. Others had gathered color swatches and contributed their ideas in this way. Everyone seemed really excited to play a role in creating a color scheme that did justice to the vintage of the building they all loved.

Later in the week, we are meeting again with the owners to present two or three alternative color schemes for the building. I will update you once the decision has been made.
