bWe have found that one of the most important things when selling a house is simply to draw as many people as possible to the house.B We want any buyer to look at our completed staging projects and say, bHey my furniture would look great with this paint.bB We have also found that there are many paint colors out there, but very few have the versatility of the Spade and Archer line by Miller Paint Company. The palette only consists of five (5) simple colors.B But they have proven to be winnersb& every time.B Here is a photo from a recent project using this perfect palette.

Spade and Archer No. 3 is the workhorse of the palette. B This beige serves as the basis to launch many of our rooms. B It works like a pair of kakis in a manbs wardrobe, they are dressy with out being stuffy and they go with most any shirt. Beiges have a tendency to lean towards pink or green, this one is perfectly in the middle and looks great with dark wood trim as well as the bright white trim of Spade and Archer No. 1. B
