Congratulations to The Greenery for winning the 2012 Best Exterior Paint Prize! Owner Bridget submitted plans for a lovely color scheme, but had a change of heart after she won. The Greenery ultimately ended up getting a custom C2 paint color with help from the Adlers of Adler’s Design Center & Hardware, a vibrant green inspired by an old photo of a flower shop in Paris. It was a true collaboration; neighbors turned up to help her paint! Bridget even “paid it forward” by painting and decorating her entire building, not just her own storefront (on the right). Check it out:
