Need more local info on how to properly dispose and recycle? We try to keep this page updated with all the current trash and recycling guidelines in Narberth and Lower Merion.
Color of the Year
While it may seem that contemporary interiors are just variations of white, beige and gray, you may want to use the "color of the year" to stay on trend. Of course with many different designers and paint companies weighing in, there are actually quite a few 2023 "colors of the year". See some of them in this article, and decide what you think.
