This time of year I am always SO EXCITED to find out what the paint companies will come out as the popular colors coming out for the next year. It's as exciting of a time as the Grammies. All us Interior designers are always trying to guess to see what the color will be! We sit on our computers and wait for that moment when they are announced! So here it is the yearly paint colors but only from a couple of companies... We have Sherwin Williams and PPG and Behr who has chosen a palette of color this year.
For the life of me, I do not understand why anyone would want to order blinds over the internet! Over the last 30 years that I have been selling blinds, shades, and shutters, you would not BELIEVE all the mistakes we have made in ordering, installing, having to repair blinds that have rotted string, and remote controls which need re-programmed! It's been a painful learning experience. I learn something each and every time something doesn't go quite right! I recently just had a customer tell me they were going to order from a big box store because they could get a better price.
I think one of the most popular questions I get is what is the TREND now in paint colors. I am always up to date on those with the industry I'm in but I don't always agree with the selections that the paint companies announce. I am always a bit hesitant to "join the revolution" of changing everything in my house around to match the paint colors of the year too. That is until this year....3 of the 4 main paint companies have announced that their paint color of the year is a shade of blue. I LOVE Blue! Blue has been in every home I have ever had!
