0739-jungle-adventure-2

 

The month of April represents renewal and optimism, just like our color of the month. Winter is behind us (in most states) and we look forward to the first sign of perennial shoots in our gardens.

Green is the obvious choice for April, but not just any green. Jungle Adventure 0739 is a classic, organic green with a hint of yellow undertone. Think nature, botanicals, a green that is a jewel tone, but not as blue as the Hunter Green of the 80’s. The color green is soothing, positive, and comforting, while the brighter greens bring a sense of energy to a space.

Color Trends have always crossed borders of fashion and décor. Have you noticed the “spring greens” this year? I sure have.

Sugar Dust… it’s as sweet as it sounds.0011 Sugar Dust

What better way to get ready for Spring, than with a fresh slate, or rather, a fresh coat of paint on your walls? This month we celebrate our favorite warm color – the dreamy Sugar Dust. This off-white color evokes tranquility and a sense of peacefulness, making it a hands-down favorite among Color Guild members. So, warm up with a little Sugar Dust sprinkled throughout your home.
