on point: Highpoint Market favorites

If you are a residential designer, Highpoint Market is like Mecca – you absolutely have to make the trip!  If you can’t attend the next best thing is to follow along virtually.  The hashtag #HPMKT on Instagram has nearly 60K posts of new products and inspiration.  Based on personal preference and post popularity, here are my picks on this Spring’s market winners.

HOT NEW WALLPAPER

Detroit Wallpaper stole the show with their brightly colored geometric patterns.  I obviously have immense love for the Mitten State and am happy to see the success of yet another amazing Detroit business!

BRASS & SASS

It’s no surprise that gold tones were a huge hit.

love it or hate it: Sherwin Williams new numbering system

So I recently learned that Sherwin Williams entire numbering system is in the process of changing!  Many of you familiar with the system know it was a 4 number system, and now they’re going to a 5 number system.  And the numbers are not similar at all.  For example, Pure White was SW 7005, and now is SW 30008.

Translation:  I’m gonna have to relearn all of my most favorite numbers again!  EEEKKK. Oh well.  I GUESS I’ll adapt.

The silver lining?  Word is there is about a 100 new colors in this new system.

Oh and these are what the new swatch cards look like:

They remind me of trading cards.  I think I kinda like them.

How do you other designers/home renovator/Sherwin Williams paint lovers feel about this?  Love it or hate it??

PS. TGIF! 🙂
