Each year, paint mogul, Dunn Edwards, shares with the world what is trending for the coming year. We're going to share with you now, how to pair what's hot with Bloomsburg's Silver Creek Carpeting...

According to Dunn Edwards; home is defined as a place of residence or refuge, as well as a place of connection, where one is most comfortable. Home is wherever we are, it connects us to our past, present and future. It allows us time to reflect, bond with others, create new experiences, enjoy playtime and plan our futures.
