Color is so very important in regards to turning a house into a home. From the exterior hue to the interior shades, color plays such a huge role in determining our own mood as well as those of our neighbors. In her 1913 book The House in Good Taste, American decorating maven Elsie de Wolfe wrote “we must consider the effect of color on our nerves, our eyes, our moods, everything.” This is especially true in smaller spaces when real estate is at a minimum and colors carry much more weight. Perhaps then there is no better source for helping us choose colors than the color pros at Behr.
The History of Behr
In 1947 Otho Behr, Jr. began selling linseed oil to paint stores from the back of his woody station wagon. Not too long after, Otho recruited his father, chemist Dr. Otho Behr Sr., to help him develop a formula that would perform better on redwood than just linseed oil. The two were successful and in 1948 Behr Jr. began building a stain and varnish empire. In 1986 the company introduced premium paints to its brand. Now, in 2016, Behr is again advancing the industry and establishing their position in the fast-growing tiny house market by exploring the design and emotional relationship between paints and beautiful homes.
Homeowners now seeking smaller spaces and great freedom have grown the tiny house movement from a potential passing fad to a booming industry. As a company that encourages consumers to buck trends and be true to their personality, Behr is a big supporter of this movement. It wants more people than ever to achieve the simplicity and freedom that come with living small, so it’s launching the Behr Dream Tiny sweepstakes—giving away a tiny house RV built by Tumbleweed Tiny House Company.
To help launch the sweepstakes, Behr provided Tiny r(E)volution with a $100 The Home Depot® gift card to give away to one lucky reader. The exciting part is that there is no purchase necessary to win, there are no tricks or gimmicks, and you can enter multiple times.
There is one catch though. In order to enter you must enter a comment below letting us know what color you’d paint your home and why!
