C2 Guard is a non-toxic waterproofer and sealer designed for use on unsealed wood and concrete surfaces. Its unique formula absorbs deeply into the surface, forming a flexible polymer that becomes part of the cellular structure, allowing it to prevent the failures caused by water intrusion for up to 10 years. This enhanced cellular structure helps prevent the effects of mold and mildew, dry rot, cracking, peeling, cupping of wood. For concrete C2 Guard helps prevent concrete corrosion and spalling, the effects of mold and mildew, the effects of pool chemicals and eases ice and snow removal.
Believing that the greatest quality a home can possess is that of innate, soulful hospitality, Virginia-based Barry Dixon has become one of the nation’s most sought-after interior designers. His new color collection for C2 Paint is based on this philosophy and inspired by his beloved Virginia farm and garden.
“We are thrilled about this new partnership with Barry Dixon,” says Tom Hill, president of C2 Paint. “His use of color, impeccable aesthetic, and global view on design reflects the soulful signature that he brings to every space he designs.”
Dixon’s color palette draws upon the infinite potential of nature, an element that is the foundation of the C2 Paint brand. “With appreciation of the quality of C2 Paint’s pigment and color saturation, not to mention their thoughtfulness to our environment, I couldn't have been happier when they approached me about this creative collaboration,” Dixon says. “Drawing from the influences of nature that inspire us all, we’ve edited a palette of colors and tones that we feel speaks to the natural world. From the varied egg colorations in my Virginia henhouse to the dappled shades that dance across my pond, these colors whisper to us in quiet dreams of the beautiful world outside our windows.”
Barry’s creative work is featured frequently in publications, including Traditional Home, Coastal Living, Elle Decor, House Beautiful and Veranda magazine. For eight consecutive years, House Beautiful has identified Dixon as one of America’s top designers and he was named Veranda magazine’s “2010 Master of Design.” He is a frequent design contributor on network television shows like “Good Morning America” and TV stations including HGTV, Style Network and Fox Television. Barry Dixon Interiors, his first book, was published in September 2008 and in its third printing. His newest book, Barry Dixon Inspirations, is now in bookstores.
