About Backdrop

Backdrop believes in transforming spaces through paint. Their premium paints are low-VOC, Green Wise certified, and low-odor (it really is). Backdrop offers sample swatches, delivers to your door, and is the first climate neutral paint brand.

We love Backdrop Paint, check out below for the many reasons why!

And Backdrop cares a lot. Before they sold one can of paint, they partnered with The International Rescue Committee, a non-profit who supports families who have been displaced from their homes involuntarily.

Backdrop believes paint is a powerful tool of expression and can change as often as you do.

We Love Backdrop

We are in process of creating a Japandi Living Room that started out with teal walls (not Japandi). One of the first steps to Japandi any room is applying a Neutral Color Palette. An ideal and easy way to do this is with a fresh coat of paint. Especially if the room has not been painted recently, a fresh coat really livens a space.

Whether your room is dark and you want to lighten it, your room is already light but the walls show wear and tear, or your room is a neutral but you want to change it up a bit - you can reach to Backdrop Paint to bring stunning Japandi neutrals to your space.

Backdrop Neutrals  / Perfect for Japandi Rooms

Backdrop has an amazing selection of neutral tones that make it easy to create a Japandi room.

When looking for Japandi shades, check out Backdrop's Harvest Moon, Palo Santo, Morning Ritual, Moonlight and Moonstone as favorites - but explore as they have many neutral shades.

Backdrop Paint Samples

Backdrop Sample Swatches

Backdrop has these amazing sample swatches. They are basically a 12" x 12" sheet of your paint color with a light adhesive on the back. They stick to the wall to give you a broader idea of the color (no more little swatches) and they are easy to remove and use again in other rooms. The swatches are $3 each - but totally worth it!

Japandi Tip !
If your ceiling is already light, has been painted recently, or is in good condition then don't paint it. Instead focus on walls for more impact.

Japandi Tip !
Look at your paint samples at different times during the day, the color may look different when a sunny morning vs. the evening.


Paint Calculations - Japandi Supply House
We chose one of the hardest rooms to paint - lots of windows and angles. Backdrop does have a tool for simpler rooms to help figure out how much paint you'll need.

Backdrop also makes it easy with supplies - everything you need to paint is delivered to your door including paint tape, trays, brushes, rollers and roller pads.
