It’s Design Pool’s Third Birthday!

It's hard to believe it, but January marks Design Pool's third birthday! As we look back on the past three years we are feeling proud of all we have accomplished. Especially when we factor in the surprise wrench thrown into our plans (and everyone else's on the planet) back in March 2020. But, we've rolled with it. We adjusted where we had to, pivoted where we could, and learned to take things as they come and try to enjoy...

Design Pool’s Pick for Color of the Year 2022

Every December, we look forward to doing a round-up of the color of the year picks from popular paint companies and, of course, Pantone. But before we look at what everyone else is picking, we like to pick our own. Last year, we chose an energetic yellow to bring light and optimism into 2021. Our color of the year 2022 pick is also inspired by optimism and positivity. Unlike the cheeriness of our 2021 pick, we're looking at 2022...
