Kimberly Gartland says: They've manipulated the colors you're supposed to love!

Color manipulation that spans the fashion and interior design industry.

Have you ever wondered why you can go store to store and see the same colors and patterns from multiple different companies?  Why Home Depot has a paint selection that goes perfectly with the new lamp you just bought at Target (that OF Course, happens to match the side table you love from Pier One)? Turns out, every season new color trends surface in the fashion and interior design industry.  They engulf every store with their new, hot colors that are both inventive and clever. But who gets the credit for bouncing colors off one another and deciding what is going to be "in" this year? Well, in the world of paint trends Benjamin Moore is King!  Using the help of North American Color and Design Group, this unique group decides what is complimentary and hip, and with over 3,400 paint hues at their fingertips, it's a wonder they only choose a few! For two years Home and Garden Magazine has recognized Benjamin Moore as the number one paint-choice for designers.  With that kind of influence, it's no wonder we check them first for the latest up-to-date hot pallettes. The fashion industry takes their lead with these selections and by the end of the season you have the perfect scarf to match the oven mitt you just bought for your newly painted kitchen. I feel a little strung along and manipulated by a group of designers year after year!  It has me seeing red... well - maybe it's more of a fuschia! www.kimberlygartland.com 253-405-8020
