  3. The History Of 5 Pittsburgh Street & Community Names

    Pittsburgh is a city that is gifted with history. Every building, street, and community seems to have a story. What about the names of the streets we regularly travel on and the communities we live in? Negley Avenue, The Boulevard of the Allies, and Lawrenceville are all names that the residents of Pittsburgh are quite familiar with, but where did they come from? Who, or what, are they named after? We’ve explored the history of Pittsburgh to discover the stories of individuals whose names remain very present in the minds of the residents of our city.
     

    The Boulevard of the Allies

    Boulevard-of-the-alliesThis (mostly) four lane road that connects Downtown with Oakland is frequently travelled. It was dedicated in 1921 and was the most expensive road in the world at that time. After repeating a name or any word many times it has a tendency to lose its meaning. It could be assumed that The Boulevard of the Allies stands for nothing more than the road itself to many. This was not so for the men and women who chose the name in 1921, as World War I had come to an end just three years earlier.

  4. Can You Identify Famous TV Houses?

    You’ve seen reruns of your favorite show on TV countless times, but how much do you really remember? In TV, it’s common to use an “establishing” shot to set the beginning of a story. This might be a 3 or 4 second exterior shot of the main characters’ house or the outside of some other key location in the ongoing story of the show. In many TV shows, this is the viewer’s only shot at catching a glimpse of the exterior of their beloved characters’ home. Some less observant viewers might not even think twice about what the house looks like. We, as homebuilders, just can’t help ourselves!

    It’s time to put your TV knowledge to the test. If you’re a Netflix binge watcher, this might be the quiz for you. Some questions are more difficult than others, so take your time and dig deep into your memory! We know you’ve seen most of these shows, but what did the house look like?

    Working with Color

     

    Adding color is usually the first step. Here are several videos with advice from Dee Schlotter, the National Color Brand Manager for PPG Pittsburgh Paints. Not surprisingly, this is some of the most popular content on our website.

    This video discusses trending colors and ways to make a little color go a long way. Her best tip, however, is how to take “dangerous” colors like red or black, and use them to add contrast without interfering with the rest of the home.

    Choosing Paint Colors for a Bedroom (VIDEO)

    It is important to remember that bedrooms are for sleeping. Will bright orange or fluorescent green help that? Probably not. Dee’s secret is to put big colors away from the bed so you get the personality without the distraction. Great advice!

    open-spaces-colors-heartlandThe Right Colors for Open Spaces (VIDEO)

    If you have high ceilings or a spacious family room, why not take advantage of them with colors that fill the home. Big canvases tend to inspire neutral, safe colors. But, as Dee explains, there are ways to add bigger shades without going too far!

    Selecting Trim Paint (VIDEO)

    This is another place where people tend to play it conservative. We see shades of white and not much else. This video shares ways to use exciting accent colors that add depth and variety to a home.
