Color of 2014

Yes, there really is an expert out there that selects a color of the year.  That expert is not one individual but actually a group of people at the Pantone Color Institute and the color for 2014 is…drum roll, please…Radiant Orchid.

Each year the folks at Pantone comb the world looking for color influences in art, entertainment and fashion.  Their color of the year influences all industries, including fashion, home design and even packaging.  This year’s Emerald was selected as a symbol of growth, renewal and prosperity.  Radiant Orchid is said to encourage expanded creativity and originality.

“An enchanting harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid inspires confidence and emanates great joy, love and health.  It is a captivating purple, one that draws you in with its beguiling charm,” says Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of Pantone Color Institute.

For use in the painting industry, I would use the color to liven up neutrals such as gray or taupe.  Sherwin Williams was inspired by the color, went a step further and named 6263 Exclusive Plum as their color of the year.

Personally, I would venture to say that the experts at Pantone know what they’re talking about.  They’ve been seen as the expert for the last decade and with a woman at the helm with a name like Eiseman, she’s got to be the expert!

We are long time happy customers with many positive experiences with Brooks Painting. We have appreciated the assistance (and patience) with selecting paint colors, the professionalism of the staff and the high quality of workmanship. We recently had some interior painting done and the crew was on time, neat, careful inside the house and very easy to work with. They also cheerfully handled some unexpected drywall repair. I highly recommend Brooks Painting.

Bud was always available and extremely knowledgeable. He was always willing to go that extra step and also explain things thoroughly.

They are on time! They show up! It was a big job and they were good and fast. Very nice guys.

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.

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.

Donald S., Realtor

We would recommend them highly. [They] painted and did a good job. Kept everything clean and cleaned up after, very polite.

Brooks did a fantastic job on our exterior and interior paint jobs. Quality was high, price was reasonable, and the team was extremely professional and detail-oriented. Mark was our crew lead and the team performed a number of exterior wood repairs, a door re-stain, interior and exterior painting. Mark clearly takes a lot of pride in his work and went above and beyond to ensure the work was high-quality, including finding exact matching siding to fix dry rot, and performing minor repairs that weren't even included in the quote. He and the team were all consistently positive and personable, joking with each other throughout the day, while also genuinely complimenting each other on the quality of their work. It was great to see, and that positivity definitely showed through the work they did. We couldn't be happier with the end result.

Competent, very thorough, listened to my wishes, very accommodating. Hard workers, friendly, happy, willing to please.

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.
