Recently I was asked to provide color consulting services for a very special client, The Easter Bunny. Mr. Bunny needed to put a new roof on his home. After researching all of the options, he wanted a luxury roof from DaVinci Roofscapes. But, like many homeowners, he wasn't sure how to choose just the right color. They asked me to give him my color advice.
With good reason I thought that Mr. Bunny would want a custom blend that was as bright and colorful as the eggs he dyes each year. I explained that we could make a special color roof or roof tile blend in any color his warm and fuzzy heart desired. I even showed him a couple of examples of a beautiful blue and perfect pink that we had custom blended for two princesses living in Florida to spark his imagination. Much to my surprise that wasn't what he had in mind at all.
One of the things that had attracted him to DaVinci, in addition to its resistance to impact, hail and fire, was that all 50 polymer roofing colors were inspired by nature. Rather than a brightly-colored storybook roof, he wanted one that would blend in with the surroundings. While he likes his egg dyeing studio to be bright and attention-getting, for his home Mr. Bunny wanted to create a hideaway that insures that after the busy Spring season he will be able to rest and relax undisturbed. Now that I understood, I was able to go in a different direction with my recommendation. I narrowed it down and had the awesome DaVinci customer care team send out samples for him to look at on his roof.
Because it was so close to Easter I decided to send him a little surprise that would drive home the point of just how natural the synthetic slate and shake roofing tiles look. I dyed a very special dozen eggs in a variety of DaVinci colors. The eggs arrived with the roofing samples and a note challenging Mr. Bunny to hide these eggs around his home and hold a special egg hunt to see if his friends could find these eggs. I felt confident that these special eggs would be camouflaged so well that they would be hard to find, if they are found at all.
Luckily after the special egg hunt, as I expected, even his color specialist had a difficult time finding the eggs hidden among the stones, soil, grasses and other colors of the natural landscape. Eventually those with the most discerning eye for color were able to find most of the eggs but there are still two or three yet to be located.
The Easter Bunny is satisfied. He confidently selected the mix of colors I had recommend in Bellaforte Slate. Now when Mr. Bunny hops down the trail to his burrow after a long season he will be welcomed to his own private hideaway. With a solid roof overhead in a color that blends with his natural surrounding he can relax into a much-deserved rest.
