Benjamin Moore Color of the Year!

 

Color Of the Year- 2017

Benjamin Moore has released their color of the year and we couldn’t be more thrilled.  Color of the Year, Shadow 2117-30.  We are loving the undertones of deep purples in this tone.  Some color pairings that would look great with Shadow would be different shades of purple, greens and ivory’s.

2117-30

 

Usually when picking out paint colors there is some sort of inspiration behind it.  This can come from anything from the outdoors, floral’s and even the latest fashion trends.

Here are some examples of the color inspiration pulled from floral’s and how it can be used in a space and the end result.

We also area loving their entire 2017 color palette.  These are our Top four Benjamin Moore 2017 Colors 

2062-20 HC-160 AF-3002114-40

First on our top 4 would be Gentleman’s Gray 2062-20.  This color is extremely on trend right now.   The deep blackened blue is a very masculine tint reminding us of a well tailored suit.  This color would look fantastic with metallic accessories, lighter blue’s, silvers and golden tans.  This color is seen over and over in cabinetry and built in units.  Bye Bye White Hello Deep Navy’s!

Here are some inspiration photos using Gentleman’s Gray.

Second on our list would be Knoxville Gray HC-160.  Another dark and moody color in blue family.  This color would look fantastic on an exterior all siding home it would instantly update the look.  Or why not paint interior doors?  Change your hardware to the popular bronze or matte gold, this would become a conversation starter for sure!  Another look i love is using this moody color in a powder room, accenting with bohemian reds, porcelains and golds.

Third on the list Dinner Party AF-300.  Although i do think that this next color is extremely bold to be used as a main all over wall color. It is very sophisticated with deep red and black undertones.  I would absolutely use this color in small doses. Wether it be used on the front door of a home, or used in a DIY project re finishing an old piece of furniture.  Another dramatic touch would be to paint the backs of a bookshelf for that daring focal point in a room.

Last but not the least Benjamin Moore’s Wet Concrete 2114-40.  A Classic and elegant choice! This color can be used anywhere in a home.  Looking especially elegant in and en-suite master bath. Or customized into a wall paper look with horizontal stripe panels.  A bold move would be to paint out an entire room including ceilings and baseboards.  You can easily bright up the space with light art work, furnishings and accessories.

Jabbaribar Family Story!

lot 149 homeowners

Mr. and Mrs. Jabbaribar moved here four years ago from Iran.  Mr. Jabbaribar works as a technician and Mrs. Jabbaribar as a hairstylist.  They have one young boy who is just starting school, they were both very excited to be buying their first home together.

When asked why they chose Sunlight Heritage Homes, Mrs. Jabbaribar responded that they searched online and Sunlight was one of the top builders that appeared.  When they went to visit the model home they fell in love and decided to purchase ‘The Preston’ model.  They also really loved the unique exterior and modern feel the home had.

For finishes they kept everything neutral with dark woods with grey undertones.  This couple brought along with them photos for inspiration.  Being very visual, this helped them envision what their kitchen would look like with a two tone design.  Light Kitchen and Dark Island.   A cohesive color scheme beginning with the exterior of the home and brought throughout.  Lot 149 Kitchen Counter

Congratulations again on the purchase of your new Sunlight Family Home, from our family to yours.

Mrs Horman’s Story

We had the pleasure of working with Mrs Horman who had traveled all the way from Thunder Bay!   When Mrs. Horman came in for her color selection i was very curious as to how she had found out about Sunlight Homes, being from Thunder Bay.  She quickly responded that she is originally from Woodstock, that is where all her family is.  She wanted to move back and be around her family.  She had noticed new townhomes being built so she immitiately contacted one of our representatives that she seen on our signs. Homeowner

Mrs Horman went with Our Unit C Model in our townhouse homes in Woodstock- Villages of Sally Creek.  When asked why she chose to go with this unit Mrs Horman said mainly, the views! Who wouldn’t want to look at these view everyday?  I couldnt agree more.

With the large windows facing the golf course tons of natural light pours into the living space.  With the help of myself, one of Sunlight’s Decor Consultant’s, we thoughtfully planned out all of her finishes to make sure everything would work well with her existing furniture.

The model chosen being and inside unit we thought adding extra lighting in the kitchen area was very important.  Under cabinet lighting and pot lights throughout will truly brighten up the space.

She kept her finishes neutral, light and bright.  Her plan is to bring in colors of blues etc with her furniture and accessories.

Grieve/ Moore Family Story

Lot 143 Foxridge Family Photo

We had the pleasure of meeting and working with this loving young couple.  With three children, 2 boys and 1 girl they are a very active family.  Both currently living in London they wanted to find a home that was perfect for their family.

With their large family a 4 bedroom home was a must.  They decided to go with the “London” model.  They loved the modern look and style and how it didn’t look like everyone else’s home. When it came to choosing their interior finishes they loved that the counter top chosen was called ‘black pearl’.  Their favorite movie is Pirates of the Caribbean and the ship is called Black Pearl, it was a great match.

What made them choose Sunlight Heritage Homes was that we were able to offer them a unique modern style home.

With a contrasting kitchen and light tile we cant wait to see this home come together!

Whats happening for 2017 paint and Interior Decor?

Sunlight Heritage Homes likes to be updated with the latest and greatest.  We try to stay on top of all the new and upcoming products so that we can offer you the best! Looking into what we think will be the most popular in 2017 when it comes to paint, materials and surfaces.

We loved Pantone’s color of the year for 2016.  The soft of Rose Quartz & Serenity were seen all over when it comes to interior decor.  Right from Pantone’s website some color pairings, Wether it be a soft or a hard surface, the pairing of Rose Quartz and Serenity brings calm and relaxation.

This subtle combination works so well with other tones including greens and different shades of purples, browns, and all sorts of shades of pink and yellow.

Condensation

warm-heart-1188359

With the colder months approaching some homes have problems with the windows sweating on the inside.  This can happen on any home brand new or older.  If this problem is happening to you then you have a humidity problem.  Your humidity level is a bit too high.  The ideal percentage that your homes should stay around should be 50 to 55 percent humidity.  If your humidity is higher than that your windows will become dehumidifiers and condense water that is in the air, until your humidity level inside drops to the 55 perfect range.trailer film It 2017

With newer homes they are usually built much more tightly than older.  This can be good for many reasons.  However one bad side effect is that the moisture cant escape as easily.  First thing we would recommend would be to buy an inexpensive hygrometer to monitor the humidity indoors.

condensation-on-windows-1147765It could also be that your new home is still drying out. New concrete, wood and other materials usually take about 12 to 18 months to dry.  This is something that you can’t control, but on cold evenings you can open your doors and let that warm humid air out for at least 10 minutes.

Last week at Sunlight Homes..

Last Friday we said ‘see you later’ to one of our team members who has been with us for just over three years.  Our Lead Designer Draftsman, Philip Coelho.  Philip was such a great asset to the company.

He co- designed our new Design Centre with owner Wilson Ribeiro where we are currently located.  His talent was truly something special,  bringing unique and out of the box ideas into our home designs.  His fresh outlook on spacial design created a different and one of a kind Design Center, that was placed Top 5 Nation Wide!

We couldn’t have done it without him.13892231_1069420213134314_2211328330149665549_n

We thank you for your years of loyalty and commitment to us.  Thank you for becoming part of the family and someone we will never forget.
