Popular color trends for Northern Arizona have been sagey, greenish grays as shown in the photo above. Evergreen Fog SW 9130 was last years color of the year and coordinates well with this color of the year in the pale Coral Pink. Suzanne has seen several of her clients "exploring" new techniques rather that that of traditionally styled surfaces and trim. For example, painting walls & trim the same color but using a shinier sheen for the trim. Another popular trend in newer homes, has been crisp white walls with a different hue for the trim and doors or a field color throughout with just little accent and a punch of color mainly due because of the open concept floor plan. Do be afraid to use a flat sheen in a deep dark color, the result is stunning.

Some consumer tips for "Do It Yourselfer's" is to download the Sherwin Williams app to your phone and you can easily match a color.

Suzanne has a help desk inside the Sherwin-Williams showroom on Miller Valley Road in Prescott, Arizona and gives free color advice in-store, but does charge for in home consultations.
