Sherwin Williams contacted me earlier in the week, asking me to post about National Painting Week and to share some information that you might find interesting about painting and home improvement.
Of course, the timing couldn’t be more perfect. We love Sherwin Williams and we used/are using the Cashmere line of paints throughout our new house. The Cashmere paints spread like butter and cover beautifully. That’s the opinion of each and everyone of us in our family, we were not asked to say this by Sherwin Williams.
Pretty interesting statistics, right?
Be sure to check out the outstanding inspiration shared at SWNationalpaintingweek.com
Sherwin Williams had bloggers transform rooms featuring outstanding use of color.
While I couldn’t show off any great transformations given my impending move, I wanted to share a composite of the paint colors I choose to use throughout the house. I coined it my “Soft and Subtle Color Palette”. Ha!
Here’s a quick peak at some before and afters. I think the color transformations are very current with today’s color trends and a complete testament to the power of paint and the DIY.
Of the colors we used, by far, my favorite surprise pick, the one I kind of just went “for it”, has to be SW 6230 Rainstorm. I can’t begin to express what a lovely, deep, not quite navy, not quite teal color this is. It is simply gorgeous. I don’t have a great room photo yet, but here are a few to tide you over until the complete reveal.
I also used Rainstorm as an accent wall in Miles’ room. The other walls are SW 7065 Argos, a cooler, blue gray color.
Here are few more looks at the colors around the house.
Before Dinning Room:
After Dinning Room, SW 6204 Sea Salt
After Foyer, SW 7010 White Duck:
After Study, SW 7017 Dorion Gray
Sorry this is an iPhone photo, but given the samples I had painted on the wall before we left, I think this is pretty true representation. My dear husband painted this room after the kids and I left at the end of spring break. Even though we accomplished much, we left him with many walls of painting still to do. 😉
And the best part of Sherwin Williams’ National Painting Week?
It culminates with a great sale on paint!!
You know you want to paint now! Get out there and do it!
