2015 was a great year for Modern Masters as we watched our products expand to more locations and used in ever more increasing ways. We also spied a few color trends of our own (just like Pantone) and thought to share them with you as we get ready for 2016. Ready? Let’s do this!
First up is Metal Effects, one of the more popular product lines for us this year. Our Metal Effects Kits are now available online at TheHomeDepot.com and many decorative painters and DIYers expanded their artistry with patinas and oxidation.
Patricia Presto of On the Surface, used both our Copper and Bronze Reactive Metallic Paints and the Blue Patina Aging Solution to create an extraordinary finish on a showhouse kitchen range hood. It looked so realistic that she was requested by the designer to make cards to place on the counter stating “this is not real copper.” Image by Mary Powell Photography.
Patinating furniture took off this year with gorgeous results. The Painted Bench Hamilton created a showstopping storage unit for their studio with the Copper Reactive Metallic Paint and both the Blue and Green Patina Aging Solutions.
METALLIC PAINT COLLECTION
Our Metallic Paint Collection is a perennial favorite, being used in theme parks, awards shows like the Oscars® and of course, your homes and businesses.
Upcycling furniture with paint is a ‘trend’ that we think is here to stay. Who wouldn’t love to transform a blah piece into something extraordinary? Decorative painter Linda Gale Boyles of Southern Inspirations used our Copper Metallic Paint for an artistic night table (left) and DIYer Redone Reloved used Warm Silver Metallic Paint to add a painterly yet classic look to a dresser (right).
Decorative & Faux Finishes always share their amazing Modern Masters projects with us and when we spied this one, our jaws dropped. A gold metallic paint overglazed on a foil finish to give the walls gives a rich, luxe look. The same tone is on the crown molding, trim and the cabinets, which were topcoated for protection.
Our Metallic Plaster has a symphonic blend of shimmer, luster, elegance and environmental friendliness. We saw many unique wall and ceiling projects with them this year!
Decorative Artist Shauna Gallagher took various Metallic Plaster shades and created an eye-pleasing wall treatment with a layered stencil pattern for a commercial shop.
FRONT DOOR PAINT
Super easy to use, cleans up beautifully and never fades. Add to that the ability to be done with your door in mere hours made our Front Door Paint a first-rate choice for your upgraded curb appeal. Here’s some of our fave projects with the most popular colors.
What do you think of the hot colors for 2015? We loved seeing these colors and finishes in your projects this year and are so excited to see what’s coming up for 2016! Be sure to share those amazing new projects with us!
