Our Team

Rocky Rochon

Owner

 

"Rocky focuses way beyond the aesthetic –- whether it’s for his design services, his paint and furnishings lines, or his studio of collected décor pieces. His process has always involved helping people dig deep, think about process, consider what problem is at hand to solve, and then solving that problem -- his biggest takeaway from his studies of interior design and interior architecture at University of Washington. Fortunately, it’s also how his mind naturally works."

For Rocky’s process-oriented mind, it is Metamerism, the science of the reflection of light and its impact on how color is defined, that is one of the most foremost aspects that guides his approach to The Paint Laboratory.
