OLYMPIC(R) Exterior Stain Announces Free Color Harmonizer Tool.

New, Interactive Desktop Tool Inspires Consumers to Revitalize Their Outdoor Home Spaces with Color

PITTSBURGH, Pa., Aug. 24, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- A home's exterior is usually the first thing that your guests notice when they pull in. So it's important that you give just as much attention to selecting exterior stain colors for your siding, trim and deck as you would for choosing interior paint colors. Olympic Exterior Stains today is launching a free, interactive desktop color harmonizer that takes users through different color schemes and easily identifies no-fail color combinations that will work with their home exterior.

"It can be challenging to choose complementary colors whether you're staining your entire home or selecting colors for your deck," said Susan Uram, Brand Manager, Olympic Exterior Stains. "Our new color harmonizer makes it easy for homeowners to select beautiful color combinations that will enhance their home's existing features."

Olympic's Exterior Stain color harmonizer is rich with tips on how to best select and blend exterior stain color. With just a click from your desktop, users can browse up to seven color schemes in yellows, greens, browns, reds, creams/whites, greys and blues, and preview how different shades look by pulling the colors from the palettes into a "blueprint" deck or house. DIYers can visit to interact with the free color harmonizer tool.
