Explore Benjamin Moore’s 2017 Colour Trends

September 14, 2017

It is in our opinion that Benjamin Moore’s design team this year continued to find bold colour choices, as well as playing on the inspiration of light, which is similar to their claims of inspiration for the 2016 trends. While both the 2016 & 2017 colour trends encourages users to step out of their comfort zone, this year the warm, rich, muted tones form a palette of cohesive and complimentary colours. The jewel tones, such as Shadow, Salamander, Dark Burgundy and Gentleman’s Gray can be put in just about any space without being overwhelmingly dark by balancing them out with some of the lighter shades like Wish, Iceberg, Porcelain or Cloud Cover. If there is a room in your house that needs a fresh look, go out on a limb and trust a colour from the 2017 Colour Trends Palette.

How do you design a dream without a homeowner?

September 1, 2017

When you’re on the team of designers and suppliers for a lottery dream home, you’re flying by the seat of your pants. Deadlines are tight and timelines are constantly shifting, not to mention that you are only one of dozens of moving parts that must fall perfectly into place.

Our team is very proud to say that all the Hunter Douglas window treatments and blinds throughout this year’s Kinsmen Club of Sudbury’s Sweepstakes lottery home are by Barrydowne’s Hunter Douglas Gallery.

But because designing the show home is a group effort with a million different decisions to be made, we often find ourselves planning and ordering products before all the details are ironed out – or even before the windows are installed!

So that leads to a tricky question: how do you make design choices for a dream home that doesn’t have a homeowner?
