One of the largest manufacturers and suppliers of paints in the Pacific Northwest, Parker Paint has been sprucing up interiors and exteriors since 1945. The company has evolved over the years to keep up with the latest advancements in painting technology. Among the multi-hued fruits of this evolution are weather-ready exterior paints, whose modern formulas scoff at the elements and prove ideal for realistic yet unflattering outdoor murals of the neighbors. With more than 1,600 shades to choose from, painters will find it nearly impossible to settle, like a bowl of jello during an earthquake. Luckily, customers can take advantage of the handy virtual decorator to narrow their choices and forecast what color schemes should be applied to which room, such as aquamarine themes for the exotic-fish room, bright primary colors for the inflatable fire escape, and a variety of yellows for a basement filled with antique butter churns.

Richard Jamieson's childhood spent in his grandparent's log cabin had a strong influence on his career. It instills his pieces of hand-hewn furniture with a rustic, old-school aesthetic also displayed by the three NFL players who still wear a leather, facemaskless helmet. As a former USMC officer, renowned marksman, sawmill operator, and world traveler, the carpenter draws from a lifetime of adventure to create intricate latticework carvings and exotic monsoon wood.
As he shapes his materials into dinner tables, drawers, and bed posts, Jamieson animates an ecologically sustainable philosophy. He retrieves his wood from responsible sources such as salvaged teak, overshading mango trees, and invasive meh trees that overrun Javan rainforests without even offering to pay part of the rent. The designer infuses each piece with a masterful craftsmanship that can impart not only an artistic composition, but long-lasting solid wood construction. Jamieson adds strong dovetail joints and a 10-step hand-finishing process that protect the luxurious planks of tropical hardwood for years to come.
For over 30 years, 3 Day Blinds' technicians have sift through samples and unreel measuring tapes during in-home consultations, custom-fitting abodes with blinds, shutters, and shades.

As they tailor-make each order, the staffers dress windows of all shapes and sizes, from an arch above a doorway to a misshapen wormhole in the attic. All of 3 Day Blinds’ products come with a limited lifetime warranty. After clients have made a selection, the team shows up just two days later to install the new window dressings or let customers do it themselves.
