My phone has been ringing off the hook this week with clients wanting to tackle home projects. The kids are back in school and life has returned to a more predictable pattern. Whether you have an upcoming event or just want to jazz things up for the holidays, September is a great time to begin. 

In my opinion, there is no better tool for updating your home than paint! Paint can change a room dramatically in just a few hours.
 
Sherwin Williams announced on Monday their color of the year for 2017.
 
Introducing – Poised Taupe!
 
“Neutrals are shifting, ” Sue Wadden, the director of color marketing for Sherwin Williams told the Today Show.  “For five years everybody’s talking about gray – well, they’re warming up.  It’s like gray and brown had a baby, and it became taupe.”
 
So does this mean gray is out!  Absolutely not.  As Sue said, the gray trend has been around for the past 5  years.
 
Trends typically last for 10-15 years.  In my opinion, gray is classic which makes it timeless.  Gray is a neutral that plays nicely with a wide range of colors.
