Happy 4th Of July – Celebrate Freedom

Fireworks and freedom: That’s what America does on the Fourth of July to celebrate the country’s birthday, established with 56 founding fathers’ pen strokes on the Declaration of Independence in 1776. We also eat a whole lot of hotdogs. We make a toast or two to freedom and good old Uncle Sam, shelling out more than $1.6 billion on July Fourth beer and wine. And we travel, with nearly 47 million of us planning to venture 50+ miles from home this year.

Even though July 4, 2019 marks America’s 244th birthday, there’s still a lot to learn about this red, white and blue anniversary. To help fill you in and pump up your patriotism, we put together an awesome infographic filled with 4th of July fun facts. We also polled a panel of experts for some added insight into Independence Day.

Uplifting Pink Rooms

If you need some pink inspiration, check out these amazing pictures from Farrow & Ball. We can customize any tone of pink to make it perfect for your home or business. Contact us today to get your estimate.

1.Dead Salmon, a subtle shade whose name refers to the flat or ‘dead’ finish of an aged pink painted at Kedleston Hall in 1805, creates the most subtle and serene of environments. It has been used to great effect by @simshilditch on the cabinets in this beautiful utility room, along with our newest neutral School House White on the woodwork.



2.Rangwali, the most adventurous of our pinks, is incredibly friendly and takes its name from the powder which is thrown so enthusiastically during the Holi festival of colours in India. Though bright, it has an absorbing depth of colour which is achieved by adding a small dose of black pigment.

4. “After being advised by Farrow & Ball’s colour curator, Joa Studholme, to warm up my cool-grey walls with a splash of the new colour collection, I now have Sulking Room Pink from floor to ceiling. And guess what – it looks great. Cosier, softer, prettier – it’s amazing the transformation that a lick of paint can achieve” – @frankiegraddon.
