Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! It’s time for a fresh start!

One of the easiest ways to make any room feel new is with a fresh coat of paint! 2018 colour trends are showing that bold colours, and pastel earth tones are all going to be in style. Vibrant accent walls can add a personal touch, while trendy pastel earth colours can imbue a sense of calmness while still being interesting.

Even though exterior painting is mainly a summer project, interior painting is perfect for those cold, short days. One of the main benefits, is that colder weather means that paint will adhere better and faster due to a lower relative humidity and more ideal interior temperatures (around 15°). Wintery weather can also aid in picking a colour. Over-cast skies brings flat light, which provides a more realistic hue of the potential colours. Lastly, painting inside means that there’s no real reliance on daylight. This is perfect for the winter, as whether or not the sun is out, you can paint through the day, and well into the night.

Doing this in the winter will also leave you with more time to do other projects during the summer!
