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.

Most people haven’t heard the word, “gamification,” even though they probably, and perhaps unwittingly, participate in it every day. Gamification is “the process of adding games or game-like elements to something (as a task) so as to encourage participation.” Further, gamification is about bringing game mechanics – rules, constructs, processes, and methods – into the real world in an effort to engage people. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robert Endo, owner and engagement manager of Intrepid D...

As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions. In most new Big Data builds this approach is completely counter-productive: it presupposes tools that may not be a fit for development teams, forces IT to take on the burden of evaluating and maintaining unfamiliar technology, and represents a major up-front expense. In his session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Andrew Warfield, CTO and Co-Founder of Coho Data, will dis...

Eighty percent of a data scientist’s time is spent gathering and cleaning up data, and 80% of all data is unstructured and almost never analyzed. Cognitive computing, in combination with Big Data, is changing the equation by creating data reservoirs and using natural language processing to enable analysis of unstructured data sources. This is impacting every aspect of the analytics profession from how data is mined (and by whom) to how it is delivered. This is not some futuristic vision: it's ha...

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.

For manufacturers, the Internet of Things (IoT) represents a jumping-off point for innovation, jobs, and revenue creation. But to adequately seize the opportunity, manufacturers must design devices that are interconnected, can continually sense their environment and process huge amounts of data. As a first step, manufacturers must embrace a new product development ecosystem in order to support these products.

When it comes to IoT in the enterprise, namely the commercial building and hospitality markets, a benefit not getting the attention it deserves is energy efficiency, and IoT’s direct impact on a cleaner, greener environment when installed in smart buildings. Until now clean technology was offered piecemeal and led with point solutions that require significant systems integration to orchestrate and deploy. There didn't exist a 'top down' approach that can manage and monitor the way a Smart Buildi...
