Shades of Autumn 2020

Shades of Autumn 2020

When we think of Autumn, shades of red, yellow and orange are typically the first that come to mind. Gold, rust and clay are just a few of the trendy, modern hues we begin to see when September rolls around. But there are a few unexpected, more subtle shades that are perfect for fall. These hues give off a cozy, warming environment, but they’re also perfect to have in your home year round.

Olive Green

This deep, gorgeous color became popular a few years ago, and we’re so glad it did. Olive green is the perfect middle shade between hunter and sage- it is deep and dramatic without feeling too dark, nor too light. If used correctly, it can even be a great “neutral” shade that blends into almost any pre existing color palette. 

Our favorite ways to use olive? Use it on an accent wall, or as the main color in a room that you want to be dark and moody (like an office). However, our absolute favorite way to use this color is on furniture- it looks bold and adds a pop of color to the room while still remaining sophisticated. 

Terra Cotta

Terra cotta has been associated with Spanish and Bohemian decor style in the past, but it’s emerging as a solid choice for a warm neutral. If you want the color to act as bold pop of color, opt for a shade that has more orange tones mixed in. If you’re into a more relaxed, subtle look, consider a shade that reads more beige. Terra cotta is beautiful as an all over wall color for individuals that like to experiment with color, but may be better suited as an accent shade for others. 


It’s everywhere- this beautiful deep, golden yellow shade is perfect for adding cheer and light to a color palette, without being too overwhelming. Mustard goes beautifully with so many colors, including red, brown, green, orange, and pink. Take a modern twist on the sunshine yellow kitchen by switching it out for a deep, sophisticated mustard while still achieving that cheerful effect.

Kitchen Refresh: Repaint or Renovate?

Kitchen Refresh: Repaint or Renovate?

Found yourself stuck with a dingy, out of date kitchen? Renovations can be pricey, and can take a lot of time. With the magic of paint, a new color and a few touch ups, your kitchen will be looking new in no time! A fresh coat of paint can save homeowners a lot of time and money, by giving a space a fresh, updated look without the hassle and cost of a complete remodel. 

The cost to repaint a kitchen is typically one half or one third of the price it would be to renovate it. This is a huge savings! But, where is that paint best used? Start with your kitchen cabinets. These are one of the most common items that individuals want to change in their kitchen, as cabinet trends go out of style quickly. They’re also one of the first things you see when you look at a kitchen. Go classic with crisp white, or modern with a matte black. If you want your cabinets to look more like natural wood, talk to your contractor about the type of stain that can help you achieve that look. For something more unique, you could choose a muted color such as sea foam green or blue-grey, as a subtle but strong introduction of color.

Next, the walls. Besides just changing the color, many people don’t notice how dirty their walls get overtime. The paint on trim and baseboards begin to chip, and the color starts to look dull. For kitchens, we typically recommend choosing a light, neutral color that will reflect light and help with visibility. White, cream, tan, gray, as well as light yellow, blues, and greens are all great choices. Talk to your contractor for advice on choosing a color palette that will work well together! 

Once the hard decision making is over, it’s time for you to sit back and relax while the professionals get to work. In the matter of a few weeks, your kitchen will be looking bright and refreshed, for a fraction of the cost!

Selling Your Home? Invest in Exterior Painting

Selling Your Home? Invest in Exterior Painting

Are you thinking about selling your home in the near future? A freshly painted house can drastically increase the overall sell-ability of one’s home. Not only does a professional paint job improve curb appeal, but it can actually increase the monetary value of your home!

Whether your home just needs a few touch ups here and there, or you need to cover up a bright color, having your home repainted before putting it on the market is never a bad idea! There are several reasons for this. First things first, neutral color homes are more attractive to buyers. Gray, white, beige or tan are all safe choices, and give the illusion of a “clean slate,” in comparison to houses sporting bright, unusual colors. Second, when selling a home, you want to attract as many potential buyers as possible! If your home looks dirty and is obviously in need of a paint job, you may lose buyers who are looking for a move-in-ready home, and unwilling to take extra steps. With an exterior repaint, you’ll increase your curb appeal, which can aid in a faster sell.

A simple exterior paint job can truly raise the value of your home! By spending the extra time and money to get your house repainted, you’re signaling to buyers that your home has been well maintained and taken care of. Additionally, buyers will be happy to know that they won’t need to worry about an exterior repaint for a number of years. Because of these factors, your buyers will be willing to pay more money for your home! 

By giving your house the TLC it needs (and deserves), you can get a better return on your home, and a quicker selling period!
