Aren't these great?! I got them at a store in Northern California, "The Gardener". They are made in Mexico.

Wow! No voc paint is perfect as we're using it in our son's room (with the orange he has already chosen.) Thanks!

Hello- sorry for the delay. It is one of 2 colors- I was not great about logging my final decisions, and did several samples per color. It is for sure from Benjamin Moore, and is either from the Aura or Natura line (low voc and no voc).
Tropical Orange 2170-20
Parrot Orange 2169-20
Sheen- one sheen shinier than flat; I believe it is called matte. Easier to clean, and it's nice to have a tiny bit of luster

My suggestion for sampling color:
Sample colors on art boards- at least 2 coats each. Leave them up and check at different times of the day; live with them. Then try your favorite on the wall.
Buy only the smallest quantity to cover one wall with 2 coats at this stage. You still might change your mind.

Have fun!

Looking at the Benjamin Moore website, it is closer to Parrot than Tropical, but it's not exact, although its hard to tell on a computer.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

A low-profile line of the shelves work as a sideboard or TV stand.
Samantha Schoech added this to Working Ikea In
The hidden piece. This is an original room with a ton of personality and color. The white horizontal Expedit bookcase is from Ikea, but that's not what you'd notice upon entering.
Lisa Frederick added this to Mango: Orange for the Rest of Us
Teal blue and mango represent a modern interpretation of the classic blue and orange color pairing. Because the orange hue in this space is gentle, and the teal is so strong, the room reads as blue — mango is merely a supporting player.
Samantha Schoech added this to Color Guide: How to Work With Orange
Orange + blue = BFFs.
Emphasize orange with blue. Azure blue is directly opposite orange on the color wheel and is its best complementary color. They are opposite in psychological terms too — blue tends to be calming and cool, and orange is energizing and warm.When using them together, keep in mind that cool colors tend to recede and make a room look larger, while warm colors tend to advance and make a room look smaller.
