Color Inspiration | Classic Black Always in Style
So who remembers the 2017 Pantone color of the year? How about 2016 when they chose not one, but two, colors of the year? Anybody? Color trends may come and quickly go, but Black is one hue that will never, in our humble opinion, go out of style. (By the way, Pantone picked Greenery for this year taking over from last year’s baby blue and pink tones of Serenity and Rose Quartz.)  Many people consider Black a “safe” color.

Kim Lewis Tiny Home Debuts in LA with Barn Light Electric
When the tiny home movement first started gaining momentum, some thought the trend would play out and disappear. The trend was fueled, in part, by the economic downturn in 2007-2008 and consumer interest in lowering the cost of living. Instead of fizzling, however, the trend continues to flourish.
