The palette for this week is based on the color pairing of green and yellow, to celebrate the Boysen colors because this week extra special week. We celebrated Let it B’s first year anniversary on February 14. But even more important for the company is Boysen’s 65th anniversary on February 13.

Color Pairing: Green and Yellow To Celebrate the Boysen Colors
The Boysen colors green and yellow

If you’re Filipino, chances are you would recognize the Boysen can with just one glance. Even if the logo is not facing you, the Boysen colors are a giveaway. You’ll see them in hardware stores and home depots nationwide, in construction sites, on sides of roads as pedestrian lanes and sidewalks are being repainted. You’ll even see them in gardens since used cans are repurposed as planters, in bangkas as fishermen use them to store the day’s catch, in schools as garbage cans, or even in home laundry areas where water is stored…

Boysen Celebrates 65 Years

Last February 13, Boysen celebrated its 65th anniversary. We are proud and thankful to still be here actively serving the Filipinos.

We are proud because it is no mean feat for a company to live this long.

According to a BBC news article (2012), “The average lifespan of a company listed in the S&P 500 index of leading US companies has decreased by more than 50 years in the last century, from 67 years in the 1920s to just 15 years today.”  This for American companies where they exist in relatively less turbulent political and economic situations compared to companies in the Philippines.

Innovation is Key

We are also thankful because the Filipinos have embraced Boysen through the years, allowing it to enter their homes, offices, churches, banks, malls, hotels, airports, and other commercial spaces. You may not even be aware of it but Boysen could probably be part of your surroundings as you go about your day

This is the reason why Boysen continues to innovate, because the only way to repay this trust and loyalty is to constantly listen to what the customer needs, to be abreast of technological developments here and abroad and bring in these learnings in the manufacture of products, to keep a finger on the pulse of public concerns on health and environmental sustainability.

“In Japan, there are more than 20,000 companies that are more than 100 years old, with a handful that are more than 1,000 years old, according to credit rating agency Tokyo Shoko Research…There is even a specific word for long-lived companies in Japanese: shinise.” (Kim Gittleson)

When asked what the key to their longevity is, “Professor Makoto Kanda, who has studied shinise for decades, says that Japanese companies can survive for so long because they are small, mostly family-run, and because they focus on a central belief or credo that is not tied solely to making a profit.”

For this homie Boysen, it is truly an honor to have been serving the Filipinos for 65 years.

The all time favorite paint colors for home exteriors in the Philippines are white and variations thereof. Choosing white to paint your exterior walls has an advantage called albedo, which is a “fraction of solar energy reflected from the Earth back into space” (Earth and Space Research). White reflects light, and therefore heat, so the lighter your exterior paint colors, the cooler it would be inside your homes.

It’s not only us Filipinos who practice painting our homes with light colors. A study conducted by Nacarat, a global color expert that Boysen worked with, showed a study that the general colors of facades from 2006-2016 were neutral shades.

Suggestions for Exterior Paints

Those of you who are planning on repainting your home exteriors, read on to see what paint best fits your needs.

Pollution is not a stranger to our major cities. This means that choosing light colors would make your home get dirtier and more grimy faster because of vehicular exhaust. But don’t worry, Boysen has Permacoat Latex Paint, which is a 100% acrylic latex paint with excellent hiding, durability and dirt pick-up resistance.

There is also Wallguard Dirt Resisting Latex, which is a new breed of latex paints that has a very high resistance to dirt, dust, smog and mildew. It can be painted even in a rigorous environment where there is a very high concentration of airborne pollutants.

If you are more concerned with water seepage, it would be best to use Acrytex, noted for its excellent adhesion and long-term durability. It is an acrylic solvent-based coating that forms a seamless, non-porous, watertight film that repels water and prevents seepage. Acrytex creates a very tight film, serving as a moisture sealant for concrete and as a stain inhibitor for wood.

Another product that addresses waterproofing concerns is Elasti-Kote. It is a 100% acrylic water based elastomeric wall paint that is especially formulated to bridge micro/hairline cracks and crevices thus providing good waterproofing and protection from rain, carbon dioxide or other acidic gases (acid rain).

For me though, the pièce de résistance is KNOxOUT, the first air cleaning paint in the world with CristalActiv photocatalytic technology. It uses light energy to break down noxious air pollutants and convert them into harmless substances. Any surface coated with KNOxOUT becomes an active air-purifying surface that helps protect people from harmful gases. Photocatalysis also provides KNOxOUT with self-cleaning, anti-bacterial and deodorizing properties. What this means is that you don’t only a home that looks great, but also one that helps clean the environment. Cool, right?

When to Paint Home Exteriors

Paint your home exteriors during the dry season. In our experience, the best months would be December to May. If you live in Baguio or Tagaytay, don’t paint when it’s too cold (temperatures below 18 degrees Celsius).

You can visit various hardware stores and home depots nationwide to buy the paints. If you have any questions, send an email to ask@myboysen.com. We would be happy to help.

The Year of the Dog is almost upon us as Chinese New Year will be celebrated on February 16 this year, so what better time to celebrate our canine family members than now. Many of us love our dogs. Look at how Max and Cody love each other.

Dogs in Your Life and Home

We made this post for our doggie friends and their humans. There’s this segment in the book by John Grogan about his dog Marley where he talks about the precious companionship of a dog,

“A person can learn a lot from a dog, even a loopy one like ours. Marley taught me about living each day with unbridled exuberance and joy, about seizing the moment and following your heart. He taught me to appreciate the simple things-a walk in the woods, a fresh snowfall, a nap in a shaft of winter sunlight. And as he grew old and achy, he taught me about optimism in the face of adversity. Mostly, he taught me about friendship and selflessness and, above all else, unwavering loyalty.”
― John Grogan, Marley and Me: Life and Love With the World’s Worst Dog

Palette of the Blissful Year of the Dog
Watch video to see the paint color names of those paws.

The famous American cartoonist Charles M. Schulz who made the comic strip Peanuts and creator of Charlie Brown and Snoopy, had this to say,

All his life he tried to be a good person. Many times, however, he failed.
For after all, he was only human. He wasn’t a dog.”
― Charles M. Schulz

How to Canine-Proof Your Home

Not everyone in your family may be totally gaga about dogs. To keep the peace with your family members, make sure you keep your home clean, fur-free and good-smelling. Let the home diva Martha Stewart help you with that, click on the Clean-House Tips for Pet Owners.

For your wall paint, you can best use Healthy Home and Virtuoso paints since they are antibacterial and easy to clean.

Do send us photos of your beloved doggies in your homes to info@myboysen.com. We promise to post them here.

The Chinese believe that red symbolizes good luck, prosperity and happiness. So with the Chinese New Year approaching, we chose to make red the focus of this week’s paint color palette.

The Emotion of Red

Red is the color of blood and fire. It is hot, intense, and powerful. So how would you use it in modern homes?

But before I talk about tips, let me tell you a story. Years ago, I moved into a big house. It was a rental. I was in an experimental mood at that time, so I thought, I’m going to have a red accent wall in this huge 100-sqm living room. I did that and was very satisfied with the results. What was once a cavernous space became warm and intimate with the red wall.

Since I had some more red paint left, I thought, I’m going to paint the hallway red. What about that? No apologies! No holding back! Red was going to be the color of the left and right walls of the hallway. With the marble floor, I thought that was going to be spectacular.

It was! It gave the very stately home in one of the most gentile streets in Amsterdam the air of a brothel. It was a spectacular failure!

Thank God it was just paint! But let me tell you that it was more work than I thought. Because of the intensity of the color, it took a primer and several coats of an off-white paint color to make that bloody red color disappear.

Tips on Where to Paint Red in Your Homes

Now that I am older, and hopefully wiser, here are my tips on how to use red in your homes.

Which rooms would look good with red? I would paint them in rooms where you need lots of energy, like a living room, a dining room or a den. It would also look good in a bathroom, in a kitchen, or out on a patio or garden where the green of the plants give the color an extra kick.

A Cautious Way of Using Red

If you’re afraid to have a hot color like red on your walls, then you can opt to use the color in your furniture or home accessories. Then you can decide how much of the red you’d like to have in your living space. This is a good way to test the color and see how you feel about it before you commit to painting a wall.

What is industrial interior design and what paint palette fits this style? Let’s give this some attention because although this style has been around for a decade, it is still very much a trend today, also here in the Philippines. Just go around the restaurants in the city, and you’ll see some of this design’s influences. Check out this article 21 Restaurants Around Manila with Beautiful Interior Designs. 

Some Elements of Industrial Interior Design

Last year, I wrote an article Get That Industrial Look in Your Home. The photo gallery in that article will show you the different elements that make up this style. To summarize:

  • mixture of wood and metal surfaces
  • vintage-inspired furniture
  • exposed pipes and ducts
  • industrial lamps, rust is welcome
  • brick walls
  • neutral tones
  • functional objects used as decor
  • metal suspended lamps with Edison bulbs
  • repurposing of pipes for use in furniture 

The Paint Palette that Fits this Interior Style

Industrial interior design highlights the rawness of the building materials used like bricks, concrete, metal pipes and ducts. They are left uncovered and become design elements. Some would consider this design minimalism. I would agree but only in the sense of using elements at its barest with no adornment, not the fewest or simplest, like in Turn Your Room into a Minimalist Space.

You can combine this style with contemporary, vintage or even classical furniture. Give the look more drama by highlighting the textures of the different materials, like the gleam of metal against the grit of brick, or a soft plush rug on a concrete floor.

A friend of mine who renovated his condo several years ago had a concrete pillar stripped. He loved the rawness of the concrete so much that he left it like that. His collection of high-end furniture and accessories went very well with that rough-looking pillar.

I suggest that if you want this look, tone it down and definitely do not copy what you see in the restaurants. Especially for a new-build where the ceilings are not so high, and the shape is usually like a box, you don’t have the authentic elements like old brick walls or exposed pipes and ducts that are usually highlighted in ceilings of this interior style. Look through magazines, surf the Internet, then build this look slowly. Remember that this is your home and you’d want it to be warm, welcoming, cozy and comfortable. For that, choose accessories with warm hues but be restrained about those pops of color.

Boysen has a range of products called Konstrukt that can achieve this look. More about that in the next days.

Go natural with your room palettes to create a home sweet home.

Beautifying a home is instinctive for most of us, just like the birds. Unlike birds however, we have the added advantage of all that knowledge we can find everywhere from books, magazines, social media, TV, friends, colleagues, family…

The Go Natural palette is one of my personal favorites. I love the organic feel that the colors bring to the home. It’s joyous, optimistic, soft, comforting, and very, very cozy.

Especially after the holiday rush, it would be wonderful to have clean, open spaces with neutral colors. It gives us the room to breathe and be, maybe even think (not overthink) about how we’d like our shiny, bright, new year to turn out, while still having that free spirit of allowing changes to happen as they will.

Use indoor plants to give your rooms that authentic natural touch. Nothing makes a place look more natural than Nature itself. If you have the space and the means, have an indoor garden.

If you want to know more about indoor plants, please read Joleena’s Top Five Trending Indoor Plants  and Helen’s infographic on A Guide to House Plants.

Here are some beautiful rooms that would inspire you to have a fresh start.

Other Go Natural Palettes from Boysen

The Go Natural palette is not new to Boysen. In fact it’s a recurring theme because that is what concerns people around the world, and that is one of our concerns too.

Color Trend 2015 had Naturist. Color Trend 2016 had Renew.

Even the New Year’s palette last January 1 is also a natural one.

Environmental sustainability is not only a buzzword but a way of life for many of us. I’m sure the birds would be thankful if our tribe increases.

Orange represents sunshine, joy, enthusiasm, creativity and determination. Orange is the energy that impels us forward to do, act and create. It is the main color in this palette of the week. It’s the Let it B way of encouraging all of us to start 2018 with positivity and light.

Watch this video:

How to Use Orange

When you use orange in your homes, whether in the interiors or the exteriors, there is nothing subtle about it. Orange stands out and calls attention to itself. It’s a warm color, and depending on the intensity of the hue, it could be hot, hot, hot, or wonderfully warm like a long, comfortable hug from a loved one.

Orange is undeniable in the sense that it evokes a strong emotion. You could say orange is a love or hate color depending on the shade. But there are ways to make the color easy on the eye, and more acceptable to people. First is choose your shade wisely. Second, use the color sparingly, like painting it on accent walls, or using it on accessories.

An orange which has been in use for the last 5000 years is terra cotta, a brownish orange you find in red brick or ceramic tiles. If you have that at home, then work around that color.

On this New Year’s Day, your Let it B team wishes you a fulfilling 2018!

A year just ended and a new one begins. It is thrilling to begin something new. There’s a lot of hope, some doubts, tons of optimism and the quiet excitement that permeates a new venture. What’s 2018 going to be for each of us? Happily enough, we do have a lot of say on how something pans out, including a new year.

Let it B Wishes You a Fulfilling New Year 2018

After what could have been a hectic holiday season with the social whirl that we Filipinos like, then slow down today and turn inwards. If you’re the type to make New Year’s Resolutions, maybe you have your list ready. Whether you’re the type to have concrete plans or you’re more free-wheeling, now is the time to relax, breathe deeply, think about your blessings and give thanks, and dream old dreams or new ones. Do you have any milestones you want to achieve this year? How will you organize your life now to achieve those? They say everything in life begins with intentions. If this is the case, then intend well.

Let it B Wishes You a Fulfilling New Year 2018
Disclaimer: These colors may not exactly match actual paint.

We’ve chosen this fresh palette of yellow, green and light neutrals because we feel that this is the palette of new beginnings, maybe the gleam of an idea, or the flash of inspiration. January 1 is the doorway to a whole new adventure.

Let’s welcome the new year with open arms because first, we cannot stand still but only move forward so why not jump right in instead of resisting, and second, because Life is unfolding. It is a gift. May we all have the awareness to discern the gift that comes to us and the courage to open our hearts for the lessons it brings.

Here’s to personal growth!

Dear Readers,

Your Let it B team wishes you a very Merry Christmas. This is the best Monday ever, don’t you think? We hope you are where you want to be now, ideally at home with the people you love. If you had noche buena last night, let it be an easy-breezy morning for you, unless the kids are up and about and won’t let you sleep another wink.

Thank you very much for being part of our adventure this year. Before it comes to a close, we’d like to summarize the many things that have happened this year, and the plans we have for 2018.

The People Behind the Blog

Your Let it B team is composed of two people. There’s artiste extraordinaire Almira, whom I fondly call Mirz. She’s young, fun, with graphic design abilities that belie her age. And there’s me, that someone who has been “talking in your ear” for the last ten months. Hopefully you like what we’ve done. We look forward to seeing more of you in 2018!

Top 10 Posts for Palette of the Week

We have worked hard to bring you interesting and original content, a lot of inspiration that could help you make your homes beautiful. We’ve written a tip here, an advice there, and presented many color palettes to choose from. There are more than 200 articles in the Boysen blog to date so this Christmas, we’d like to give you the top 10 posts for Palette of the Week, in no particular order.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

How did we come up with the list? We’ve chosen the most read and the most “hearted”, and included our personal favorite or two.

What’s in Store for 2018?

1     Boysen will be launching Color Trend 2018. New colors, new palettes, new themes, new trends.  Although we are ready, it’s too premature to say much right now because the official launch date will be during the Interior & Design Manila exhibition in March 2018.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

2     We will be introducing a new booth concept also in March 2018. Again, it would be too premature to say more. But I can leave you with this. Whereas we had talked about interactivity in 2016’s Color Lab with the swatchsicles, and 2017’s painting different forms of wooden blocks, 2018 will be all about immersion.

 

 

 

 

 

3     We will be producing more original videos in 2018! There will be webisodes like the DIY Diva, which would tell life stories. There will also be more Palette of the Week videos. Mirz and I experimented on these in the last few months and we had fun doing them even if we sometimes didn’t agree on the music 🙂

See A Sample Playlist (6 Videos)

They say that “the pen is mightier than the sword” or “a picture paints a thousand words”. Both are true, but we also believe that videos add a certain magic which we want to have in Let it B. Subscribe to our Let it B channel in YouTube so you’re always updated.

4     Will Boysen be launching new products in 2018? You bet we will! And we’re going to tell you now that these products will not only give your homes a contemporary appeal, but would serve other functions as well. But my lips are zipped until the official announcements.

Merry Christmas Message 2017

5     The Boysen x SM Home collaborations will continue to give you a better idea of how the paint colors on the walls would look like in the different rooms in your home. These collaborations give a fuller picture of how colors and things could look well together, with our paints and SM Home’s collection of furniture and home accessories designed in room vignettes.
