Pantone 2014 colour of the Year!

I was looking around at the different colour expert site and the consensus is Purple is the colour of the year.

“CARLSTADT, N.J., Dec. 5, 2013 – Pantone, an X-Rite company and the global authority, …announced PANTONE® 18-3224 Radiant Orchid, a captivating, magical, enigmatic purple, as the colour of the year for 2014.”

“While the 2013 colour of the year, PANTONE 17-5641 Emerald, served as a symbol of growth, renewal and prosperity, Radiant Orchid reaches across the colour wheel to intrigue the eye and spark the imagination,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®.

Selecting Paint Sheens

The truest colour in paint is Flat sheen paint, but in the past the most difficult to impossible to clean.

Well, selecting paint sheen just got easy when Benjamin Moore developed a product called Aura. Reason is that even the flat sheen is washable. Gone are the days where Flat paint is impossible to wash. Benjamin Moore Website says this,

 “Our groundbreaking Colour Lock system protects paint colours from fading and rubbing off—even after repeated washings.

Developed for premium-quality Aura® interior and exterior paint, our Colour Lock system is formulated with proprietary waterborne resins and colorants that lock in colour particles tightly throughout the paint—not just on the surface, like many paints on the market.” – http://www.benjaminmoore.ca/en-ca/for-your-home/colour-lock-fade-and-stain-resistant-paint
