2016 Paint Trends

Got the winter blahs?  Being indoors more frequently during the winter months can do that to us.

Consider changing things up in your home.  To get the most bang for your buck with little commitment, try painting a room.  With the right prep and a little bit of patience, anyone can do it.  Conversely, any professional painter can do it, too!

The hot new wall hue for 2016?  White.  Specifically, Simply White by Benjamin Moore.

This creamy white, heavy on the vanilla/yellow undertones, is a calming, organic backdrop for most any space.

It’s no secret that a white pallet can make a small space appear larger, and act as a blank canvas to showcase your lighting, artwork and cherished collectibles.

Another way to perk up your home is to freshen up your moldings and trim.  Simply White is the perfect accent shade, and works particularly well with richer tones.  Due to the level of detailing and the oil based paints which are likely required, this is a job best left to a professional.
