The fresh on citron.

Citron. Yellow with a hint of green. It evokes energy, but not for the calm mind. Citron carries the promise of a positive future. It is a color that starts conversations.

 * TIP* : Citron is a bold statement to any room. Why not paint a table, add pillows or a few yellow lamp bases?

Have you ever wanted to add some glamour to your home, but not sure where and how to start?  Gold is an eye catching metallic that isn’t just for the wealthy, but can be luxuriously applied to your home too!

Gold leaf walls are luxurious and reflective, and can be pricey.  We suggest one focal wall to glam up your space, gold leaf or gold paint.

Benjamin Moore Color of the Year 2013

11822017743058909_3y7b7ASW_cWe chose today’s topic to be pastel yellow, one of the emerging pastels of the future…the 2013 Benjamin Moore Color of the Year!

Lemon sorbet is a perfect colour to begin invigorating change for 2013,” says Sharon Grech, Benjamin Moore Colour Expert. “Colour has the power to evoke a mood, and yellow, in its many variations, represents optimism and light for 2013.”
