Colors Matter!

paintThis time of year as the flowers are blooming and the grasses are greener, there’s often a little birdie whispering in our ear…”It’s time for a change!”

Now, that change could apply to any number of things.  Maybe it’s a minor change such as a new haircut.  Maybe it’s a bigger change like a new car.  Or, maybe, just maybe it’s a new color to be painted on your walls at home or the exterior of your home!  How exciting, right?

Not so fast — you want to make sure it is the right color for you!  While many people truly believe in color matching and color families, some just don’t!  First and foremost, you have to love it.  You’re living with it every day.  Reality is though – it’s paint…you can change it!

It’s often said that when selling your home, try to be sure you have a fresh coat of paint on the walls.  Make sure they are neutral to appeal to all parties.  This is very true as many people cannot look past the paint color (even though it is just paint!). In fact, every year Pantone, a corporation best known for its Pantone Matching System (PMS), along with many other paint manufacturers identify their Colors of the Year!  This year, they were a rose quartz and a serenity blue, which obviously are not neutral.  Benjamin Moore, another renowned manufacturer, alternatively deemed their Color of the Year Simply White.

As you can see, color really is personal preference.  Colors can effect your mood and depict your style.  All that matters is that is right for you!
