Modern House Exterior Featured Color: Sw 6496 Oceanside

Several years ago, you made one of the biggest purchases of your life, a house. When you bought it, it was the best-looking home on the street. Today, your home’s once immaculate exterior consists of chipping and peeling paint.

Chipping and peeling paint doesn’t only look bad, it’s bad for your home. It allows moisture, dirt, and sunlight to sneak in the cracks and damage the siding beneath.

Sherwin Williams Color of the Year 2020 - Naval SW 6244

SW-6244-Naval- Sherwin Williams Color of the Year 2020

We talked previously in the year about Behr's Color of the Year 2020 and now its Sherwin Williams!  Naval SW 6244 is a beautiful color, plain and simple.  It has such a wide range of depth and simplicity and is dark and mysterious while being beautiful and bold.  This is one of my favorite Colors of the Year, in fact, it has been the color of my own personal house for 3 years.  We have helped clients come to the decision to use Naval on many occasions because of how beautiful it is.  

Color Trends 

The idea of color and how it trends really is amazing.  I believe its a culmination of Social Media posts from Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, and much more.  I like to think of it as a wildfire.  It starts somewhere and the wind blows and boom, full-blown trend.  We have been watching the trends for years and watching the ebb and flow starting with one color and then as that fades another takes its place and sometimes eventually colors come back and combos come back. Color does things for peoples emotional well-being and in this time of uncertainty, painting your walls can provide a change in scene and a change in emotional state.

2020 Interior Color Trends: Is White the New Gray?

2020 Interior Color Trends: Is White the New Gray?

As we have rolled into 2020 we have seen more and more customers moving to the lighter side of color!  Ultra Whites are the latest trending colors with our clients in Colorado.  

For so many years, the trend was to have an all-over color with wall accents to pop throughout the house or in a specific room, but now the trend is seeming to go the other way.  Wall accents are no longer in trend!  In fact grays are slowly going away and leaving room for fresh, clean white walls and white ceilings as well as trim and doors.
