Fun with color!

One of my favorite reasons for working out of my home is that when my product reps want to meet, they come directly to my office- the kitchen table! (Actually, I have my office setup upstairs, but you know, the kitchen table is so much more friendly! 'Specially with a cup of coffee in hand...its more like chatting with friends rather than all business-like)


So I met this morning with my Sherwin Williams rep, Rebecca, who covers Ohio and Michigan (talk about a commute!) and she popped in to update me on all kinds of stuff that I already knew (but *may have forgotten about- ok, I totally did. Who am I kidding...) Here's a fun run down of what I re-learned and you should know too...

- Letschipit.com is up and running. What does it do? Well...its a little widget that you install on your toolbar. So let's say your one of those people who adores looking (and maybe drooling) over pictures of interiors that you love- you click your letschipit widget on the toolbar and BAM! It creates a palette of that picture. Could that be any easier???

- I relearned about Sherwin's Emerald line of paints which is as green friendly as they come. Zero VOC's (volatile organic compounds...which is the off gassing of the paint- you know that "just painted" paint smell...THOSE are VOC's...and this line has none of it..which means, you wanna paint your house in the middle of winter, and can't open any windows? That's okay with this product!) It also prevents stains from soaking in, so super easy cleanup and it won't streak or spot when you clean it! I do say, this sounds like the perfect paint!!

- Maybe one of the most important things I learned today was Sherwin Williams Color of the year...and guess what, its not Pantone's Emerald Green...or Erinteriors Navy Blue...its Aloe SW6464!! Its a soft green, a little pastel-ey, super fresh and clean looking...go check it out at SherwinWilliams.com

I love learning (or re-learning) things about my profession. It makes me even more happy when I'm learning these things while lil' Man is crawling around, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse is on in the background and we are sitting at the kitchen table, drinking coffee...yup- this is the life. And I'm so thankful for it :)
