{friday finds: bits & pieces}

Is this the summer you improve your home’s curb appeal? It is for this Hirshfield’s customer who is already giving his home a new coat of paint.

A Hirshfield’s colorist went out to his home and selected a color scheme she thought would work for his style of home and for the neighborhood. The homeowner had difficulty visualizing how the colors would look on his home from the color chips. Problem solved. The homeowner asked the painter to do a mock-up for him. He loved the color scheme once he was able to see how the paint colors looked on his home.

This homeowner is not alone. Having a mock-up done is an excellent solution to a very common problem. Hirshfield’s can help you out with a variety of sample options: pints, quarts, Hirshfield’s Big Swatch, and selected 2 0z.Benjamin Moore colors are available for test drives. It’s a DIY project or hire a professional to paint it out for you.

Paint colors shown are Benjamin Moore 1154 Dash of Pepper for the body of the house, 1547 Dragon’s Breath on the shutters, and OC-45 Swiss Coffee.
