Sherwin Williams has announced their color of the year, and man do I LOVE IT! The bold Urbane Bronze replaces the soft greys of 2018-2020.
2021 Color of the YearTap into nature with a hue whose warmth and comfort breathe down-to-earth tranquility. Our 2021 Color of the Year, Urbane Bronze, captures that simple sophistication every space is searching for.
Find Your SanctuaryNow more than ever, our homes have become the backdrop to our lives, reminding us that the moments worth cherishing have always been right in front of us. As we're looking to create the ultimate retreat for reflection and renewal, we're turning to a hue whose natural simplicity and nature-inspired energy cultivate a sense of calm from the ground up.
Rooted in NatureThe trend for biophilia continues to shape our spaces, proving that nature is never far away. Urbane Bronze might be a color rooted in nature, but it also has a unique ability to ground a room through organic appeal. Whether it's accentuating window trims or accent walls, this warm hue draws from nature for a feeling of relaxation and serenity. It also works well with other biophilic elements including, light-filled spaces and foliage.

It's FLAG DAY! The Wichita Chamber of Commerce put out this incredible video about the Wichita Flag. As "Wichitarians" we fly this flag with pride. I see it everywhere- on houses, especially cool to seeing flying among the Craftsman style and Bungalows in College Hill and Riverside. Visit any sporting apparel store and at the front, the "Wichita area" takes up a large portion with everything from flags, hats, shirts and even Christmas decorations with the Wichita flag on it.
We know we love the design - but do you know how it originated?
