Digital Renderings in Color

Joe's color expertise just got a dynamic new technological advancement. 
Have you wondered what a new color would look like on your home, but you just cannot visualize it?
Our new digital program makes it easier to visualize the look of any color on your home. We find that customers have fun seeing how colors, that they would not have otherwise tried, look on the entirety of their home. 
Combined with Joe's highly trained eye for color, this new tool is a fun way to speculate and play with color ideas. Ultimately, with this sort of flexibility and visual presentation, we are more inclined to create more dynamic colors than ever. 
As Joe said recently "We are moving from an era of Thrifty's Ice Cream colors... to Italian Gelato!" It really is an exciting time to be in the color business.

12 Fascinating Things You Didn't Know About Paint

      by DEBBIE ZIMMER, The Paint Quality Institute


Odd facts about paint and paint color.  How many of them come as a surprise to you?


1.The color purple became associated with royalty because at one time only aristocrats could afford the expensive pigment. During Roman times, it took 4 million crushed mollusk shells to create one pound of purple pigment.


2.The White House is white because of the original lime-based whitewash that was used to protect its porous stone surface. It gets painted every year.


3.The Greek philosopher Plato is credited with the discovery that you can mix two different paint colors together to produce a third color.


4.The first interior painting was done roughly 40,000 years ago in what is now France by prehistoric cave dwellers, who employed stencils in some of the work and even "spray-painted" by blowing paint through hollow bird bones.


5.Various paint colors can help the body heal itself. For example, red can often help depressed people regain vigor, while green has been shown to relieve stress.


6.In the Middle Ages, manuscripts were "illuminated" with paint made from ground semi-precious stones and egg yolks.


7.In a reversal of gender roles, it's male Wodaabe charm dancers in Niger who apply facial paint color to attract the opposite sex. 

8.Among the Aztecs, red pigmented paint was regarded as more valuable than gold.


9.The Golden Gate Bridge has always been painted the same color since it was completed in 1937. The name of the color is International Orange.


10.Many Native American tribes used black paint to signify life and yellow paint to signify death.


11.It took Michelangelo only four years to paint the famous ceiling of the Sistine Chapel in the 1500s, but it took 20 years to restore it in the late 1900s.


12.The "color wheel" is older than the United States. It was developed by Sir Issac Newton in 1706.


On A Personal Note


This is a great year for renewed fitness, and I have found that riding my bike with Darby up the coast is a most pleasurable way to do it. 

Our new buddy in Santa Monica, Sabastian, installed 

these lights on the bikes. If you go in the 

evening, you will find Sabastian 

ready and willing to sell and install 

these - in many colors!
