Black is the New Black
Black has always been a mainstay of design — clothing, cars and interiors (and in our case at Women in Rollers, cats!) — but it has often served as an accent colour, or applied to fabric and finishes for furnishings. People were afraid of it, thought it was morbid. Pshaw! Not any more. Black is rocking the paint world.
Accent walls and entire rooms (remember CONTRAST is key or you’ll feel like your house is perma-Halloween!) are being given the black groove. It’s a solid anchor colour, even though it isn’t really a colour, per se, but the complete absence of colour.
Where does it work? It’s stunning on a wall where white or silver and grey accents stand in the foreground. Around a white fireplace surround. On kitchen cupboards. On the front door of your house in Benjamin Moore’s glossy Grand Entrance paint (pricey, but high-impact). On floors (we painted pink ceramic tiles (yes, you read that right) in the one bathroom in our new head office/show house, switching them to black and it rocks!). On industrial style ceilings (it hides all the mechanicals), and on doors and some trim.
But the new trend for black is to decorate entire walls with it (keep the trim crisp white, ditto the ceiling) and often to use a matte finish. Wow factor galore! Machine art wall with a completely black aground and hang a collection of black and white art prints and etchings on it. Wowzah!
Black, like its related dark colours, raced, so it actually makes a room seem bigger.The beauty of black is that it goes with absolutely everything. And it classes up anything it touches. So, be a Mick Jagger, and paint it black. You’l find blacks with undertones of blue, red, purple,green and brown. Try these fabulous blacks from the Benjamin Moore colour collections:

Happy 6th Anniversary to Us!On August 12th, Women in Rollers celebrates its 6th Anniversary.

Women in Rollers is proud to use and promote the complete line of paints from Benjamin Moore. Why?
Let’s start with the facts:
Due to environmental and health concerns, paint companies had to revise their formulae to omit oil-based paints for interior applications effective 2010. Moore stepped up. They delivered the optimum lines of water-based paints that perform with the tenacity of their oil-based predecessors.
It’s the best paint on the market, period, and because we know how it performs, we can accurately quote our labour time for any given job. Even the contractor grade of Moore paint applies and adheres and cleans better than the top of the line of most other brands. The cost-effective line “Ben” is excellent for budget projects; perfect for students. Great coverage, and like all Moore paints, available in thousands of colours. The middle-grade paint, “Regal” offers superior stain blocking, a reasonable price, and great coverage. “Aura”, the top of the line, is essential for applications in kitchens and bathrooms, and affords a quick dry time and exceptional coverage; its price is a bit higher, but worth every cent.
It is available in good supply, in stock with our paint suppliers on a regular basis, and easy to access. The warehouse is in Dartmouth, so even if we have local supply issues, they are resolved in 24 hours.
The products are diverse. We can get rub-on, wipe-off wood stain, the best ceiling flat ever, eggshell finish wall paint, floor paint, the only real solution to the elimination of Melamine cabinet paint, and much more. Moore has surfaces covered.
We do not receive any form of kick-back, but we do get a discount that all paint companies give to contractors; we pass this on to clients. The best for less. Nice.
Bottom line: we can count on Benjamin Moore paint. We’ve worked with it for years and we believe in it. So much so, that we do not guarantee any job in which we do not use Moore paint. We believe in it that much.
Worthy of note! Is your chosen colour from Behr, BeautiTone, PPG, Sico, or another label? No sweat; we can match any colour, even Farrow & Ball.
We always discount the retail price of Moore paint to our cherished customers. It’s a win/win.
So… Why would we use or recommend anything else? We're professional painters; we use professional paint!
