One of the greatest benefits of choosing California Paints, besides supporting a local paint retailer, is how we tint our paints to ensure your favorite colors look and last. Trillion is our exclusive super strength colorant tinting system. When you choose a paint color and type of paint, the paint has to be tinted at the store location to produce the exact color. All paint stores tint paint, but California Paints' Trillion exclusive tinting system is 3.5 to 4 times stronger than conventional systems. This allows for plenty of benefits, including some you might not expect!
To continue our conversation from last week… Let’s dive right back into trends and Historic Colors! We discussed the idea of trends and how both the 20th Century and Historic Colors of America coincide with the universal trend cycle. I also highlighted some of our favorite trending hues and how to use them. Today we will be digging deeper by exploring the idea of “timeless” colors. And of course we will share some more of our top hues and why we love them! Let’s get started!
Trends are an interesting occurrence. Some can be fleeting while others often repeat themselves. Color trends tend to be a bit more timeless. Our Historic Colors are great example of this. These colors were distinctively trendy during their specific time period which made them memorable. Expert historians, like those at Historic New England, recognize this and give these paint colors their historic stamp of approval. These historic hues continue to appear in color trends even today. So what exactly makes some of these historic colors more significant than the rest? Why do they continue to pop up in color trends even now?
Labor Day has come and gone. Here at California Paints were are gearing up for yet another fall in New England. Personally, this season is my favorite time of year. Who doesn't love back to school activities, football season, the crisp autumn weather, and of course the COLORS? New England is known for its colorful falls. Seeing as we reside in the heart of it, what better way to celebrate than by sharing some of our favorite bold and bright fall palettes with you! Hopefully it'll inspire a bright and warm interior paint project or two!
