Looking for a fresh start this New Year? Why not give your home a new and updated look with a fresh coat of paint. Youll be surprised how different your abode can look and feel by simply updating your color scheme. Whether its the exterior that screams for a much-needed update to oomph your curb appeal, or a lackluster interior that could benefit from a few new hues to bring your interior spaces into the year 2015, paint is an inexpensive and easy way to modernize your home. And the number one rule of color? Have fun! Just what should homeowners look for in trendy but true new colors for 2015? Nature and neutrals still reign supreme at Sherwin-Williams, with people looking for a haven from our technology-driven, fast-paced work world. Homes have become peaceful retreats filled with a cool, neutral palette: muted tans and blues, whisper-soft grays and greens, and creams are all in the mix this year. Of course, theres also a place for more moody colors that give a nod to todays futuristic vibe. Think supernatural and magical tones, such as deep sea blues, heavenly aquas, terrestrial gold-yellows and browns, and even cyberspace shades of black, which all make themselves comfortable in todays vivid palette.
Those looking for more cheerful colors need not fear. On the bright horizon are floral pinks and purples, and mellowed yellows and greens. The feel can be downright tropical. Expect to be seeing a lot of upbeat and pinky Coral Reef, as its the color of the year at Sherwin-Williams. Seems were feeling optimistic that the recession is behind us and the best is yet to come. Also look for bold, ethnic-inspired colors that reflect our collective anticipation of the upcoming Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. Expect expressive takes on the primary colors, including turquoise blues, spicy yellows, and rich reds. Green is 2015s big player over at Benjamin Moore. Guilford Green, a muted silvery-grayish green, is their color of the year. This light ethereal hue is a winner whether youre looking for a neutral interior or exterior hue that everyone will love.
(Get ready for lots of friends to copy!) In fact, greens of all muted hues abound on the hot list, keeping the organic, neutral look alive and well. The color pros at Benjamin Moore advise going monochromatic, with different shades of the same hue flowing from one interior room to the next. Sounds calm and tranquil perfect for a peaceful New Year.

Get Inspired: Monument Valley, an iconic symbol of the American
West, is the sacred heart of the Navajo Nation. In some
ways, Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park is the definitive West. The rugged, disruptive landscapes are infused
with ancestral spirits yet are hauntingly familiar thanks to
Hollywoods long love affair with this land.
Any visit to southeastern Utah must include a visit to
Monument Valley but be warned; this remote, inspiring
place demands a closer look. You can take the scenic
drive for a half-day visit and hit overlooks on the main
highway, but youll find yourself longing to stay, to get closer to the monumental buttes that tower as much as
1,000 feet (300 meters) off the valley floor.
Know the History: This iconic symbol of the American West is
internationally recognizable, having appeared in
countless movies. Monument Valley was set aside
as a Navajo Tribal Park in 1959. The Navajo word
TseBiiNdzisgaii translates to valley of the rocks but the
land has profound cultural significance. Like Arches and Canyonlands to the north, Monument Valley showcases
eons of natures erosive power, yet has distinctive
formations unlike anywhere else in the world.

You like the finer things in life. The best wines. Perfectly tailored clothes. An impeccable home.
So when it comes to your car, you want luxury, too.
But youre also aspiring to lead an eco-friendly
lifestyle. How can you feel good about your carbon
footprint driving around in a Maserati or Porsche?
However, the alternativetodays hybridsarent
exactly hot. To help reconcile your need for style
and speed with your desire to protect the planet, we
introduce the exquisite and truly remarkable Tesla.
Named after the electrical engineer and physicist
Nikola Tesla, the American car company Tesla Motors
designs, manufactures, and sells 100 percent electric
cars. Thats right: Their cars are completely electric, with no tailpipe, no gas tank, and zero emissions. This
is a tend-setting car that is more than comfortable in
the company of those other luxury imports.
Tesla currently offers three models. The Model S is
a sports car meets sedan electric car with three
different-grade battery options (it can travel up to 300 miles per charge!). The Model X is an SUV style family
car with falcon-wing doors that open up rather than
out, allowing you to park in even the tightest of spots.
Not to mention that the door-wings look amazingly
cool and futuristic. The Model X even offers a third-row
seat that is easy to step rather than crawl into. The
larger Model X offers two battery-grade options, at
different price points. And finally, theres Teslas ultimate sports car, the Roadster, the jewel in the
crown of any sports car enthusiasts collection. Also
in the works at Tesla is a generation three electric
car. While the three models currently available come
with higher-end price tags youd expect from a
cutting-edge luxury car, the newest model set to
debut in several years will retail for less than $40,000,
and could truly change the way Americans drive
Sounds amazing, right? But just how does this
super-hot car work? You can simply charge your
Tesla in your garage every night so its ready to roll
the next day, the perfect plan for the around-town
driver as well as the commuter. Those taking a road
trips in the Model S can take advantage of Tesla
Superchargers, charging stations strategically built
in 75 locations throughout North America. Half the
battery can be charged in as little as 20 minutes,
enough time for you to have lunch and then be on
your way. (There are already 135 Tesla SuperCharger stations in North America alone; the number of
stations is expected to grow significantly in the next few years.)
If youre in the market for some hot new wheels,
why not take the Tesla for a road test? Not only
