Dee Schlotter, senior color marketing manager, PPG paint brand, discusses paint color trends in senior care living in her article “Revitalizing feeling of nature inspires tomorrow’s life-care destinations” published on PRISM. “As generations enter various stages of their life, their preferences and senses continuously change.
