Testing the metal: Gold, silver and copper paints for your homeJanuary 10, 2017
As we enter the busy holiday season in Northern Indiana, the painters at Matthews’ Painting is gearing up for those last-minute touches that create a welcome to guests in your home or business. High on the list of decorating details are fast makeovers that professionals can do – without the mess or the paint smell – to make your holidays picture perfect. We’re scheduling interior work for December 5th and beyond, so now’s a good time to hurry and give us a call. Here are a few interior and exterior painting and staining ideas to make the season more special. Good news for our Goshen, Indiana and Columbia City, Indiana residents:
Spare bedroom refresh: Christmas, Hannukah and other holiday vacations bring families together. That usually means traffic and travel plans, but all roads lead to a destination. Families who expect students to come home, or grandparents to come see the kids, will make use of spare rooms that don’t get much attention throughout the year. Now’s a good time for a fresh coat of paint that helps to offer guests an attractive, clean and comfortable room during their stay. Be sure to put it on the list of preparations! The Matthews team is always ready for a day job – or even a few hours – to create a finishing touch.
Front door spruce-up: As you’re putting up seasonal decorations, you might take a look at your entryway. It doesn’t take long for a door to take a few scrapes and scratches in busy households, or see some wear around the doorknobs. A fresh or even festive coat of paint on the door, both inside and out, is a simple touch-up that makes a striking impression. If you have a wooden door, it’s also another protective layer against the cold, wet weather of the winter months that lie ahead – and so easy to do.
Brightening the bath: Get ready for the new year with a new look in the bathroom! For 2017, the Benjamin Moore paint company has chosen “Shadow” and its complementary color palette as the color of the coming year. It’s a study in purples, from the lightest and feathery of lilacs to the vibrant violet. At Sherwin Williams, the 2017 selection seen here is “Poised Taupe.” The company describes the feel in the Danish word hygge, to create a sense of warmth and cozy comfort. If you envision entertaining holiday guests (and wonder about the powder room or suite bath) it may make sense to choose next year’s colors now!
Office or study: In this gift-giving season, it makes sense to give yourself a makeover too. More people than ever are working from home, especially in the creative professions, and the studio or workspace environment has impact on both productivity and inspiration. A fresh look as you begin the new year feels like a fresh start full of possibilities. At Matthews’ Painting, we can walk you through the choices that may make the most of your light or layout, and get the job done with minimal work interruption.
As interior and exterior painting experts, we stand ready to finish your holiday wish list with a touch of painting magic! The Matthews staff is welcome to hear any of the ideas you may have too, so call us to talk about your plans and schedule today at 574-834-3575.
