The DCOTA Showroom of International Platinum Sponsor, The Shade Store, hosted a CEU with Florida Chapter Sponsor, Sherwin Williams.


Florida Chapter member Jenny Kohls of Sherwin Williams gave a fascinating presentation  on Color Mix 2016 which describes the inspiration behind four color pallets.

Pura Vida:  These elements remind us to live well, be well and stay well.

Mas Amor Por Favor: Highlights the meaningful change driven by social engagements, family and the pleasures of intimate gatherings.Nouveau Narrative: Think rugged determination, olive and denim, dusky wools, and brass buttons as inspired by our new industrial evolution.

Trajectory: Technology’s pace has us living in a constant state of wonder. The boundaries between art, science and commerce continue to blur….

The audience, including Chapter President Elizabeth Zecca and Past President Caroline Rogow, were engaged in the informative presentation. Jenny reminded us that just as color is important, so is the location where the paint we specify will be used and that proper preparation is the key to a successful outcome, which means a happy client!  You hold the power when your ask the right questions and gather information so you can recommend just the right product.
