Interested in updating your interior with a little refresh?  One way to liven up your home is with a fresh new coat of paint, inside and out!  It’s a relatively inexpensive fix to the doldrums.  I, personally, like to update my interior walls every four to five years.  The colors available now are endless and with a little dramatic wall here or there, you can really make quite a statement using just a little paint.

Dunn Edwards has announced their 2018 Color of the Year…

Drum roll pleaseDunn-Edwards®, 2018 Color of the Year, The Green Hour (DET544), draws inspiration from turn-of-the-century Paris, when 5 o’clock became known as “The Green Hour”. A darker shade of gray blue-green, this color embodies the timeless sense of mystery and creative revelry of the era.

Sara McLean, color expert and stylist for Dunn-Edwards, spent months researching global color trends and influences to provide a final Color of the Year selection. Her research revealed that green is trending in all color values — cool greens, warm greens, blackened greens, complex greens, gray-greens and many others. And, more importantly, variations on this color have been trending over recent time — lighter cactus and mint greens, to darker teal and blue-greens, paired with a variety of other hues including the highly popular Millennial pink, rose and deep fuchsia.

So, get out there and update those walls of yours, as you see fit!  Your walls will thank you!
