one last look at 2012

Today is a day that encourages reflection on a whole year's events.  How have you done with your 2012 resolutions? Have you thought about resolutions for the coming year?  For us here at Quiet Home Paints, 2012 was a big year full of challenges, hurdles, excitement, successes, and learning.  We thank you all from the bottom of our hearts for listening to us over the past year and for being as excited (and sometimes more!) about our paint...  Here are just a few highlights from the year:

Way back in the beginning of 2012 we got things rolling with a whole new look to our website:


Over the past 12 months we've discovered what we love and what we don't about this site...  keeping with tradition you will see a few changes in the beginning of 2013!


We packed up some samples...



and sent them to Thailand where they were used by local children and teachers to create some beautiful murals...

like this monkey


and these flowers... 


We had a wonderful photoshoot with two incredibly cute models and lots of paint cans.... 


We created new sample cards for each palette:


this is loft... full of sophisticated, modern colors. 


We went to a few tradeshows where we saw many of your smiling faces and met your adorable little ones...


We had lots of fun projects to work on including this awesome loft space...

we loved this wall of windows overlooking Canal Street in Boston and think our color Brickwork accentuates them perfectly. 


We staged some seriously beautiful nurseries for photoshoots...

including this one which uses pond, catnap, bee and buzz...


And of course, we started offering all of our colors in chalkboard paint...

seen here at Lincoln School...


We made a catalog:

another is on the way for 2013 with new colors, new projects, and of course - chalkboard! 


and of course, did lots of projects on the blog!  Some of our favorites:


an easy to do stencil project... 


a quick lamp makeover...



and a chair transformation.


It's been a wonderful, busy year and we can't wait to share with you all of the changes and excitement to come in the new year. 

Quiet Home Paints wishes you a happy, healthy, and of course colorful, new year!!
