Silver Strand

According to Sherwin-Williams, you can “wade into an elegance that ebbs and flows between the laid-back atmosphere of a coastal look and a more elevated yet approachable modern style. With Silver Strand anchoring the collection, May’s Seaside Tranquility palette weaves a harmonious backdrop of refreshing and relaxed comfort that ties it all together.”

Greet guests with a stunning shade of warm white that bathes spaces with a welcoming feel. As backdrop, Egret White’s bright shade breathes an airy expansiveness into the sun-drenched foyer and sets a tone of serene sophistication. Subtle pops of Silver Strand’s soft, breezy shade evoke the soothing qualities of lounging by the seaside. Warm wood tones coupled with the texture of accents like a jute rug and wicker baskets underscore the rustic charm. The overall uncomplicated, minimalist approach leaves the space with a clean, fresh feel that’s timeless.

Our coastal customers will appreciate the décor elements and colors that pair well with Silver Strand.

Kestrel White

It’s hard to beat the classic color of a well tinted white like Kestrel White from Sherwin-Williams. This is one of those colors you can use throughout the house with no concerns about it going out of style. Are you considering changing furniture soon? Neutral wall colors are a great way to get the latitude you want so other décor will fit right in. Lasting beauty can be applied by our crew while you shop for your new look in wall coverings and furniture. Call us at 541-497-3804.

Malted Milk

Staying with our spring theme of pastels, here is anther color by Sherwin-Williams, “Malted Milk’s soft shade can turn every day into a sweet escape. Couple this blushing beauty with cottagecore vibes to craft a home where little moments are romanticized.”

Wallflower

Here’s what Sherwin-Williams says of the Wallflower set of colors: “May’s sunset palette of mood-boosting hues feels made for a slightly eccentric style that blends retro color with a minimalist aesthetic. A Snowbound backdrop provides a blank canvas for the warm 70s-inspired hues of the palette to assert themselves as accents throughout the room. The curved comfort of softly rounded furniture and textured materials like rugs and cozy throws echo the warmth in the palette and bring some cozy balance to the clean “less is more” sensibility of this look.”

We say it’s a nice purplish pastel. Either way, let us know if you have an interior area that needs a color change. 541-497-3804

Yellow, A Happy Color is Calling

If you’re looking for a warm and inviting color for your home, yellow paint colors are a great choice. Yellow is associated with happiness and optimism, making it a perfect choice for areas like kitchens and living rooms. Pale yellow paint colors can create a sunny and cheerful atmosphere, while deeper shades of yellow can add a touch of sophistication. When deciding on the right yellow paint color for your space, consider what other colors will be used in the room.

Using yellow paint is like infusing your interior space with a drop of sunshine. Yellow adds an unmatched brightness and inner glow. Paler shades of yellow are perfect for nurseries. Brighter yellow paint colors are great for sun porches and kitchens.

Yellow tones can produce a warmer feel to your living room.

Beige to Blue

Check out the big improvement of this house we transformed from a drab beige to a very appealing blue. The transformation goes well beyond the color change. We spent considerable time and care cleaning and preparing the surface. We handled loose paint, primed raw wood, sealed and caulked against weather damage.

Notice also the trim details that go well beyond the previous paint job and really bring out the original charm of the house design. We are scheduling exterior paint projects for the fast arriving season. Call Mike at 541-497-3804

FlexTemp

Here at Paint Doctor’s Painting we are thinking about the change of season and how it impacts our painting projects. We are very careful to make sure the atmospheric conditions are ideal when applying paint products to our clients’ buildings. Temperature plays a key role when deciding when to apply paint on exteriors and fortunately Sherwin-Williams has developed a new product to broaden the range of acceptable temperatures.

FlexTemp Exterior gives us more flexibility in our exterior painting schedules. With their new ExtremeTemp Technology™, Sherwin-Williams has made painting in extreme temperatures, from 35° F to 120° F, possible. FlexTemp provides excellent adhesion and long-term resistance to flaking, peeling and weathering and can be tinted in VinylSafe® paint colors.

Down on the Farm

When you consider what makes a rural property stand out, it’s often the color coordination of the outbuildings and fences that make you think, “Wow, that’s a nice place.”

In previous blog entries we’ve talked about protecting your investments. This is true with outbuildings as well. You may not give some of your barns and sheds the same priority as the house, but when you consider replacement costs (especially with today’s material costs), the protection you get from quality paint throughout the property is well worth the investment.

Cutting corners on paint products and application processes will likely cost your more in the long run. Consider rundown looking properties with faded and peeling paint. It will take even more work to get these back up to speed.

If you are ready to get your rural property up to the level you’ve always dreamed, give us a call.
