Behr Unveils 2013 Color Trends Forecast For Professional Painters, Contractors And Remodelers

Trusted Paint Manufacturer Educates Professionals on Color Trends to Better Serve Customers

SANTA ANA, Calif., Jan. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Behr Process Corporation, an experienced and trusted provider of paint and coatings, announced today that its professional products and services division, BehrProSM, has introduced its 2013 color trends forecast to provide industry professionals with color expertise to better serve their customers. Identified by Behr's color experts, the 2013 color series features a diverse range of options that translate seamlessly to contractors' residential and commercial projects, assisting professional painters and remodeling experts in offering colors for customers to adopt.

Blue has been pinpointed by Behr as the leading color family in 2013. Deep, rich jeweled blues such as sapphire, lapis and cobalt will be used in combination with the already available aqua, turquoise and coral families. Within each of Behr's four forward looking color schemes—"Classic Caprice," "Color Metric," "Sweet Jazz," and "Apres Ski,"—a blue shade is represented. The "Classic Caprice" is a traditional color story with a modern twist, perfect for adding spice to a formal room. "Color Metric" plays off of the popular color blocking fashion trend, featuring neutral tones paired with intense, bright pops of color. The third palette, "Sweet Jazz," influenced by the art deco period, introduces feminine pastel shades for a hit of nostalgia with dark accent notes for a contemporary aesthetic. Lastly, "Apres Ski" illustrates how professionals can interject color in spaces featuring natural materials—stone fireplace, exposed wood beams, etc.—for an electric woodsy style.

"Behr's 2013 color choices are modern, with inspiration pulled from historical style, particularly from the '20s and '30s, including art deco furnishings and the whimsical essence of The Great Gatsby. The streamlined color palettes will be attractive to customers who are looking to make an impact—large or small—on their property," said Erika Woelfel, director of color marketing for BEHR® Paints. "Today's residential and commercial property owners are keeping a pulse on color and design trends, and when offering expert insight, pros are meeting the customer demand for unique color combinations that add a personal element of glamour and design."

"BehrPro strives to give professional contractors, painters and remodelers all the solutions they need to better their businesses, and the four distinct color palettes—devised by our team of experts—are versatile for today's home owners and property managers," said Colin Jaffe, senior vice president of operations for professional products and services at Behr Process Corporation. "While gray will be a predominate color story for neutral walls, we encourage adding splashes of color on accent walls, ceilings and doors to draw attention to open areas and drive traffic to points of interest. Professionals who strengthen their color expertise are adding a beneficial component to their portfolio that will contribute to a better, stronger business foundation."   

The innovative BehrPro service program offers free jobsite delivery by certified coating specialists who can provide onsite color advice and answer product questions. To help professionals better meet customer expectations, BehrPro also provides access to factory tinting for accurate and consistent color matching.

Contrary to mainstream media attention, the multiple possibilities of how consumer IoT will transform our everyday lives aren’t the only angle of this headline-gaining trend. There’s a huge opportunity for “industrial IoT” and “Smart Cities” to impact the world in the same capacity – especially during critical situations. For example, a community water dam that needs to release water can leverage embedded critical communications logic to alert the appropriate individuals, on the right device, as soon as they are needed to take action.

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
While many app developers are comfortable building apps for the smartphone, there is a whole new world out there.

Consumer IoT applications provide data about the user that just doesn’t exist in traditional PC or mobile web applications. This rich data, or “context,” enables the highly personalized consumer experiences that characterize many consumer IoT apps. This same data is also providing brands with unprecedented insight into how their connected products are being used, while, at the same time, powering highly targeted engagement and marketing opportunities. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Nathan Treloar, President and COO of Bebaio, will explore examples of brands transforming their businesses by t...

How will the customer experience change in stores of all types when everything can be instrumented and analyzed? As an area of investment, how might a retail company move towards an innovation methodolo...

For IoT to grow as quickly as analyst firms’ project, a lot is going to fall on developers to quickly bring applications to market. But the lack of a standard development platform threatens to slow growth and make application development more time consuming and costly, much like we’ve seen in the mobile space. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Mike Weiner, Product Manager of the Omega DevCloud with KORE Telematics Inc., discussed the evolving requirements for developers as IoT matures and conducted a live demonstration of how quickly application development can happen when the need to comply wit...

Explosive growth in connected devices. Enormous amounts of data for collection and analysis. Critical use of data for split-second decision making and actionable information. All three are factors in making the Internet of Things a reality. Yet, any one factor would have an IT organization pondering its infrastructure strategy. How should your organization enhance its IT framework to enable an Internet of Things implementation? In his session at @ThingsExpo, James Kirkland, Red Hat's Chief Architect for the Internet of Things and Intelligent Systems, described how to revolutionize your archit...
