After the holidays finally come to an end, there is a large stretch of time during the winter where there isn’t really that much going on, and if you are like many homeowners out there, this slow period after all of the hustle and bustle around the holidays can leave you desperately searching for some […]



School is back in session, which means fall is just around the corner. Before you know it, holiday season will be in full force!

Brown is a rugged color, created by mixing all three primary colors, red, yellow and blue. It is solid, earthy and connotes strength and reliability. Also warmth, security and comfort: think of all the wonderful foods that are brown: chocolate, hot cocoa, the crust on a roast, whole-grain bread. It can also be rich; think […]
