According to Debbie Zimmer, a paint and color expert at the Paint Quality Institute, ”It’s the hot new neutral, a sleek and sophisticated color option that adds refinement to almost any room”.
“Walls that are painted grey are great backdrops for almost any style of décor, and grey is such a dignified color that it can elevate the appearance of even the most modest furnishings, ” she says.
Beyond wall color, grey will embellish interiors in other ways next year — in the form of grey wash on wood furniture, for example, and in fabric used for everything from seating to floor coverings. “We will even see grey’s flashier cousin, silver, used as an important accent color,” says Zimmer.
But grey won’t be the only neutral to be popular in 2014. According to Zimmer, those seeking a change from more saturated color will be happy to learn that white and off-white are back in vogue. To read the Paint Institute newsletter on the subject just follow this link – www.paintquality.com
Most people think that when the fall and winter seasons come around that painting seasons over. Unless it is an inside job. Weather and temperature do play a role in the painting profession, in the past most paints were rated at 50 or 55 degrees Fahrenheit. Which meant that a lot of outside jobs had to wait for sunny days. But with the advancements of paint technologies, they now have paints rated at 35 degrees Fahrenheit. So painting can go on year round.
So if you need some work done this winter, please don’t hesitate to call or email us.
