List for resolutions

Have you made any resolutions?

Many of us suffer through the same routine every year.  We sit and make up New Year’s resolutions.  Some are well thought out, others convoluted.  But regardless of merit, the probability of success is stifled with each passing day due to lack of planning.  It is said that if you fail to plan, you plan to fail.  Let that not be the case when it comes to your interior maintenance and decorating plans.  The cold weather has made us well aware of our inside surroundings.   Now that that the holiday decorations are going away, it is a perfect time for a winter spruce-up!

Ville Painters can help make that resolution happen.  Let us visit with you and plan an interior project that is sure to bring some warmth to your home.  We are offering exciting discounts for interior work through the end of February.  But call us now before the schedule fills up.  It is our resolution to continue to offer comfort and peace of mind for our clients!

Make your den warm for the winter!

Let Ville Warm Your Living Room!

According to Merriam-Webster (m-w.com) the definition for hibernate is as follows: 1: to pass the winter in a torpid or resting state; 2: to be or become inactive or dormant. Many animals (and plants) in our area hibernate in the winter.  Do you do the same thing?

In my house we do not go into a resting state or become inactive, but we do spend a lot of time inside.  If you also will be spending a lot of time in-doors, you will find the winter a perfect time to freshen up your home with a new coat of paint.

There are many brands of paint to choose from, however, we use and recommend Benjamin Moore and Sherwin Williams paints.  These paint brands are a much higher quality than many of the paints sold at hardware stores and the big box stores.  Having used many different brands of paint myself in my own home, I have found that these paints stand the test of time.  They also provide a much smoother application. While the cost is higher initially, they are well worth the investment.

Benjamin Moore has released their color trends for 2014, basing their colors from various design industries.  They have labeled their 2014 color trend as “The ‘New’ Neutral Color Pallette.”  Visit Benjamin Moore’s website to see their new color palette yourself: http://www.benjaminmoore.com/en-us/for-contractors/color-trends-2014. The Sherwin Williams Color Team has released their color forecast for the upcoming year, “ColorMix 2014.”  Sherwin Williams has created four pallets inspired by different styles: Captured, Intrinsic, Curiosity and Diaphanous.  Their “ColorMix 2014” can be viewed on their website: http://www.sherwin-williams.com/wcm/idc/groups/public/@swpublic/@sherwin-williams/@content/documents/webcontent/mdaw/mdiy/~edisp/sw-pdf-clrmix2014-expanded.pdf.

Whether choosing the 2014 forecasted colors from Benjamin Moore or Sherwin Williams, these colors will create a warm and relaxed den for the winter, but are timeless enough to look good year round.  Try a new color that will brighten your room and possibly your mood!
