10 Days of Design Crush Anniversary Giveaways: Day 3 Sherwin-Williams


Ten years ago this month I started Design Crush as a place to gather inspiration for my day job as a graphic designer, and five years ago it became my full-time job. To thank you all, as well as highlight some of my favorite sponsors from over the years, we’ll be hosting ten days of giveaways in celebration of ten years of this little site that could.


National Painting Week 2013: Inspiration Realized

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Sherwin-Williams more than any other sponsor, and this giveaway was the perfect reason to look back at all of the magic we’ve created together with their top-notch paint and my imagination!

First up was the front door at my house in Oklahoma City – did you know there’s a correct way to paint a door? I took the entry from builder beige to Energetic Orange in one spring afternoon and was thrilled with the outcome. It made my home stand out in a neighborhood full of blah.


National Painting Week 2014: A Little Less Blue, A Little More Light

The next year, as I was preparing to make my move halfway across the country, I was in the process of getting my home ready to put on the market. I partnered with Sherwin-Williams to downgrade the level of blue in the hall bath with a gallon of Mountain Air. The house sold in SIX DAYS, and I just know that relaxing spa-like space had something to do with it.


Custom Color Matching with Sherwin-Williams

When I bought my home in Pennsylvania that fall, I reached out to Sherwin-Williams for their expertise once again. After living in a home with rooms painted several colors I knew I wanted this space to be the exact opposite – as in all the same. I had a vision of a gallery-like space in my mind, one that would let my collection of art do the talking and fade away beautifully into the background. I was able to take a chip of paint from the baseboards into a Sherwin-Williams store, where they spent half an hour patiently helping me color match an end result that’s as unique as my 117 year old home.


National Painting Week 2015: The Office Reveal

Two springs ago we partnered once again, this time to give my home office a modern update. It had already been painted the aforementioned Sherwin-Williams customized color and I wanted to give it a pop of personality that felt like Design Crush’s brand. I settled on a diagonal accent wall in Cosmetic Pink, which is similar to the pink of this site and love the spike of energy it can give during afternoon slumps.


Bringing Poised Taupe Home

Last fall we took Sherwin-Williams‘ Color of the Year – Poised Taupe – off the walls and put it in some unexpected places instead, namely on the legs of an end table and a pattern on a seagrass basket.

In select markets Sherwin-Williams has a team of ColorSnap Consultants who do in-home consultations to help you select the right color palette and products for the projects you’re dreaming of taking on. In addition to five gallons of paint, they’re offering one reader a free ColorSnap consultation if he/she lives in a consultation market. (If not, they’ll provide a gift card for design services.) A value of over $500.

    If there is 1 giveaway that I need to win – it’s this one! We are right in the middle of redecorating our family/living room. Our new furniture finally arrived (after 3 long months) and we are ready to pick out wall paint colors that will enhance the space. I have some Sherwin William colors that other bloggers have used bookmarked. But I need to go in and start getting samples & talk to a paint specialist! I’m crossing my
    fingers… 🤞🏻

    It’s time to update our “spare bedroom”, which is actually just a junk room for storage. I want to use it as a craft room and a getaway spot used for creativity and relaxation.

    I’m slowly removing 80s wallpaper from every room in our 90 year old house, repainting each room as I go. The room I’m sweating the most in the living room–it’s a big room with tall ceilings, and not only does the wallpaper line the room–but it goes up the stairwell and covers the upstairs hallway too. Five gallons of SW paint would definitely help me get that area done with 2 coats!

    We recently purchased our home and it is outdated. We are in the process of remodeling everything and repainting the walls to our taste. The walls really could use some new fresh paint, I don’t think the previous owners painted them in years! If I won I’d start with the living room area.
