                                        Mayan Legend
There are riches to be found in the City of Gold... intense and dynamic, these colors are impressive and magnificent. They inspire conversation and activity and are not for the faint of heart. Create your own legend with the energizing, bejeweled hues of copper, amber, gold, and sand... and never underestimate the impact of color in your environment.

This color palette features beautifully rich neutrals..while highlighting fresh color combinations!  

"We deliver with knowledge, experience and excellence"

            Paula E Broghammer, Allied Member ASID


PITTSBURGH - Color is back in a big way, according to PPG Pittsburgh® Paints’ color forecast for home décor in 2012.

Homeowners will gravitate toward deep, bold and bright colors to invigorate the grey and beige of past years. They’ll make highly-charged personal choices like lipstick reds and azure blues, setting the stage for a vibrant 2012.

“We are rediscovering the joy and beauty and optimism that we need to overcome adversity, and our color choices for home will reflect that,” says Dee Schlotter, Brand Manager, The Voice of Color, PPG Pittsburgh Paints.


  Making a statement! 

 Your entertainment room will welcome guests  with a flair of innovative design.  

    Comfort!    Relaxed!   Casual!  Sophisticated!

This archetypal palette of layered organic neutrals is dramatically reinvented with the introduction of a grounding charcoal base. All rooms can use a few black accents for drama, be it lamps, wrought iron, or picture frames... so, why not an entire wall? Try a feature wall in its deep-of-night charcoal, and to do it justice, be sure to use an ultra matte paint for the ultimate, blemish-free, rich finish, which is particularly important for deep colors.

                      !Warm autumn tones and rich desert hues bring in exciting new palettes!

                                                                                   Colors sizzle!!

Studies prove consumers are now spending more time at home than ever before. The desire to create an environment which is refreshing and revitalized is important.  Major decorating decisions are made by safe choices and this includes color.  Painting a room is a scary thought to some homeowners..and a lot of work.  What if it's the wrong color?  Ask a professional...and the advice will be a time saver...



            Don't Bet Against RED!! 

My favorite Sherwin Williams RED is SW6866 Heartthrob.  It's clean, it's vibrant, it's true!!   Whatever the reason, there's no denying the pervasive power of RED!! 

Want to triumph over a competitor?  Attract romantic attention?  WEAR RED! Scientists have discovered that color tips in the wearer's favor. Athletes in "red" have a small but significant advantage over opponents in other colors.  Can you believe it? 

Using red in interior design is fun as an accent.  Mixing the popular gray tones or monochromatic tones with red, gives the room a splash of color...nothing bright or shocking!  Painting a bookcase or entry door with a red tone brings a fun element to any decor....a final touch! Red influences...all about choice!



                                              Looking forward to .... HOT STEAMY 2012

                    PICKING UP STEAM!!! 

Powerful dishwashers from brand appliance companies deliver dependable cleaning performance through STEAM!  The newest innovation in engineering...   Removes even the most stubborn residue and spots from glassware, delivering more powerful cleaning performance than ever before.

Whirlpool Corporation, which acquired Maytag brand in 2006, is the first in the industry to launch a steam option in dishwashers.  The new Steam Clean feature further enhances the proven performance and powerful components already found in Maytag brand dishwashers and reduces pre-washing and re-washing.             

The new Steam Clean option adds 24 minutes to the end of the wash process.  During that time, dishes and glassware are inundated with high-temperature steam.  Watch for more of this technology in additional appliances...such as convection steam combination oven by Thermador.

A simple idea...finally brought to the forefront.  This inspiring collection from Kale is shaping up to be one of the design industry's most innovative design concepts for 2012.  It was developed by well known Turkish industrial designer Tamer Nakisci.  The oversized diamond shapes, to form the cube effect, come in large sheets, while basic circles are grouped together to make the dots.  These eye catching patterns have a 3-D effect and can create the illusion of hanging ornaments.  While the collection is considered futuristic, it can compliment both modern and classic design.


                             TAKING SHAPE!

The "Cube and Dot" collection offers countless options for design and color, shading, placement & layout. It truly begs for personal expression.

Pricing is very affordable considering the level of design and customization that goes into the tiles.
