Pursuant to Governor Wolf’s Order prohibiting operation of businesses that are not life-sustaining, we will not be operating production tomorrow March 20. We are asking administrative staff to arrive as usual to help with an orderly closure. As we learn more information from the Governor, we will provide further communications to our employees. Please check our website and Facebook for that information.
Color is taking a front seat in all aspects of design today. The pictures below are from random publications but all have a central theme, bright colors. The room scenes have pulled their colors from the artwork shown, and the front door area is picking up the colors from the mat. It’s interesting that all three feature shades of teal and yellow which plays nicely off the neutral gray and beige of the walls. Whether you’re freshening up a room or starting from scratch, start with a piece of artwork or a print you love and pull the colors from it into the room. You’ll end up with a very polished look and a room you love.

Trending today…there is a lot happening with finishes. Painted cabinets are everywhere, grey tones and white are the most prevalent, but there are some strong colors being shown also, dark blue and even some green were seen at the recent IBS show. Matte black has become a player in finishes for everything from cabinet hardware, faucets and lighting. The nice thing about this is, it blends well with brushed nickel, stainless and chrome. Black cabinet door hardware looks great on the painted finishes, while black lights add a nice contrast in a kitchen with brushed nickel & stainless.
Look for these featured finishes in our product offerings!

The end of the year always heralds the announcements for “The Color of the Year” by various paint companies and those who specialize in forecasting color trends. The color palette seems to be getting warmer for both fashion and interiors. Pantone’s color of the year “Living Coral” is a vibrant color and is already influencing the fashion world.
Sherwin Williams’ color of the year is “Cavern Clay” which is a nice soft version that can blend with many other colors including some of the gray colors. It makes a nice accent wall and is not overwhelming in a whole room.
You may want to consider adding pops of the 2019 color of the year to your interiors to warm up the look.

They have always said that design goes in cycles, and the new cycle is trending to mid-century modern. Think clean lines, lighter feeling furniture, channel that “fifties look”. With the fall furniture market this year we are seeing this influence. Curves are everywhere and they are showing up everywhere from upholstery to case goods, even in lighting and accessories. There is a resurgence of wicker, rattan and caned furniture. These organic pieces add warmth to any interior and keep any interior from looking too harsh.
“Color blocking”, using a bold color on a single wall or piece of furniture, is softening with more pastel tones and subtle patterns and textures. There is also more use of earthy tones in rust, copper and soft gold, which blends with the appearance of brass and gold tone hardware.
The “farmhouse/shiplap” look is still strong but does show signs of starting to trend down. Younger buyers are looking at other clean looks to define their spaces and the mid-century look fits their style. Here is an overview of some of the new looks at this fall’s furniture market:
Our PW126 Pinecrest is part of our Modular Home series. The PW126A is a three bedroom, two bathroom ranch with an inviting exterior. The Pinecrest Ranch has a double dormer optioned with vertical shake siding to give the exterior some curb appeal. A formal entry foyer welcomes you into the home with a great drop zone closet, and a credenza with space for storage. The entry foyer is open into the living room, showcasing an open concept floor plan. The Kitchen is showcasing our White Cabinetry option along with our Vermont Maple Cabinetry on the island. The kitchen has great eye appeal with a full ceramic tile backsplash with mosaic ribbon accent, WilsonArt Countertops and Frigidaire Appliances. Recessed lighting paired with the two kitchen windows and patio door in the nook give great light to the space. The Kitchen also includes an extremely large walk-in pantry with storage space galore! The Master Bedroom is located right off the living room, it features a large walk-in closet space as well as an attached bathroom. The secondary bedrooms and second bath are off of the nook, along with the laundry room. This laundry room is gorgeous, and very functional. Laundry Sink, Storage Cabinetry, folding island, and space for more with this laundry room you might enjoy doing laundry!
