TheB palette only consists of five (5) simple colors. B But they have proven to be winnersb& every time.B B Here is a photo from one of our staging projects.

B7 B B B B In flat on ceilings, it makes a ceiling feel clean, flawless and higher than in other colors.
B7 B B B B In egg-shell, it makes bathrooms feel clean and free of grime from the previous home owner.
