It's safe to say that our homes have been put to the test. How did yours fare?

Three years ago we had the pleasure of working with a family who were building a custom home in Falls Church. They contacted SDI for assistance selecting all of their finish selections for the entire home.  For the kitchen and bathrooms, this included tile design, cabinet colors and lighting.  Paint and lighting selections were made throughout the rest of their home. Other services we provided included creating floor layouts for the family room.  This was critical so that the location of floor outlets could be determined.  SDI attended selection meetings, contractor meetings, and construction walk-throughs to ensure that everything came together as planned.

It’s that time again when color experts are announcing their top color selections for the coming year.  Earlier this Fall, we reported Sherwin William’s pick of Poised Taupe a combination of earthy brown and conservative gray. Recently we learned that Benjamin Moore and PPG Pittsburg Paints both chose shades of purple for their Color of the Year, Shadow and Violet Verbena respectively. The two are very different, though both firms noted their decision was based on their hue’s ability to evoke a sense of nostalgia.

We always enjoy following the predictions for color of the year and there are a few authorities on the subject who start announcing their winners in the fall.  For 2017, Sherwin Williams has selected Poised Taupe as their trend setting shade, a marriage between an earthy brown and a conservative gray.  For years gray has been a staple in interior decorating, and we still love it, but we are happy to see something with a warmer tone to use for a rich, neutral backdrop. Color experts take their cues from a variety of sources before making their choice including fashion, the economic environment,……
