What is the Color of the Year for 2013?

The standard for color comes from the Pantone color palette.  Each year they select a color that they anticipate will be “the” color based on fashion and design trends.  For 2012 it was Tangerine Tango.  Just the name puts a smile on your face.  In 2011 it was a pink Honeysuckle.  This year, they’ve declared Emerald Green as the color of the year and you will see Emerald Green popping up everywhere, including paint.

Green is a color that symbolizes nature.  It provides balance and harmony. It is a relaxing color, so it’s used in hospitals because it relaxes patients.  People waiting to go on t.v. sit in “green rooms” to relax.  Dark green is masculine; it’s conservative and implies wealth.  It’s a very easy color on the eye.  I’ve used a dark green paint called Messenger Bag from Sherwin Williams a lot on exteriors lately.  It complements brick facades very nicely, and when combined with white trim and gloss black front door, it’s quite stunning and sophisticated.  I wouldn’t recommend an emerald green on an exterior, but for an interior space or an accent wall, it could make the room come alive and soothe at the same time.

Not very many painting contractors have a color consultant available to work with their clients to find the perfect paint colors for their interior or exterior painting project.  They generally hand a color card over and tell them to pick something, and more often than not, homeowners are left not knowing where to start.  As a color consultant at Brooks Painting, it’s my job to know what colors compliment each other and it’s my job to steer my clients in the right direction when asked to help them select the “right” green for their home.  I’m passionate about color, so I find that my passion is helpful for those clients that are reticent about selecting color.  Together, we find just the right fit, and we will find the perfect green.

Another great job by Brooks Paining. they did a great job on our trim painting and siding varnish. They were very timely and considerate of our home and property. This is our 3rd time in 19 years utilizing Brooks Painting. We haven't been let done. 👍👍

You are an excellent company and I couldn't be any happier with your work. This is your second job for me and both were excellent.

We chose Brooks Painting based on their excellent reputation. It was an excellent choice! We had them do a complete exterior and almost complete interior painting of our two story house. They were done separately, while we were out of town. We are very pleased with the quality of the work. They even fixed up a few mistakes made by a crew that painted a portion of our interior ceilings a month prior (removal of asbestos popcorn ceiling), at no extra charge. Cleanup was great, also. They repaired some dry rot that was uncovered (extra charge, but worth it), and they even moved furniture back into place as well as put back the curtain rods that I had taken down, which wasn't expected. I highly recommend them, and will use them again for any future paint jobs.

It was fun working with Chris and his crew. I’ve never had a contracted job go so smoothly from start to finish. The office was responsive to my needs, Corey was patient and helpful while I made color choices, and Chris made sure I was happy with the crew’s work every step of the way. Gabriel does amazing work as well. Very much a perfectionist like Chris. I don’t have a bad thing to say. The job is absolutely stunning and I’ve had so many neighbors tell me it’s beautiful. I’m happy to put one of your signs in my front yard if you’d like so people know as they drive by who did the work. Thank you Brooks Painting. I will be recommending you to anybody who asks.

Brooks Painting has be in business a long time in our area. As a native resident we have seen and heard of their professional & quality painting. In looking for bids on painting our house Brooks was referred numerous times. When Jeremy came out to meet us we were sold on using their services and looked no further. Every aspect of this company was very upfront, professional and made us feel safe, valued and comfortable hiring them. The office staff kept good communication with us. The color matching was perfect. The crew showed up on time, were respectful and did a great job from prep to the final end of the project. The warranty offered was a plus and the liability coverage gave us peace of mind also. The price was well worth all that was included in the project so we had little to do but move our stuff away from the house. Thank you Brooks painting, crew and staff for making our home new again :)
