Some area residents got the chance to add a little color in their lives.

Color expert Ruthanne Hanlon dropped into Colorworks Wednesday to show off the latest trends in paint and home decor.

Hanlon is the national color and design manager for Pittsburgh Paints.

She says many factors go into the latest trends, from societal demographics to world events.

Right now, environmental concerns are having the biggest impact affecting everything from colors to the make-up of the products themselves.

She says younger people, "Generation Y," are behind the movement.
