I must start by saying that I was not compensated in any way for this post, even though it sounds like an infomercial!
I have found one of the best resources for choosing and coordinating paint colors. It’s been out for awhile and I haven’t posted anything because I felt sure that the DIY blog world would be all over this, but I haven’t seen anything on it. Maybe its been mentioned and I’ve just missed it, regardless, you guys need to know about it!
Sherwin-Williams Paint and HGTV have teamed together to create HGTV HOME Color Collections, which are color collections that have been coordinated together into different design/decorating styles in eight different gorgeous brochures:
Sherwin-Williams now has these large brochures in their stores that have beautiful pictures showing rooms with the coordinating paint colors that are displayed within each design style brochure. Here is a picture of one of my favorite brochures called “Livable Luxe”:
Each one of these large brochures are rooms and furniture pieces painted in the coordinating paint colors shown in the back of the book:
I know we have seen these before from various paint companies but this is really different. The middle section of the brochure gives us different paint combinations from the color choices shown painted on multiple rooms. This really helps if you are painting more than one room! Take a look:
The great thing here is that the color combos are really out of the ballpark! They are simply gorgeous and perfectly coordinated. Of course it helps to have the talented design folks at HGTV coordinate and picking the colors for you! Seeing the color combos sparked some new favorite colors and combinations for me like Tricorn Black! I would have never considered painting a room black until I saw this:
I love the decor placement and room designs in the brochures as well:
When they started this a few months back, there were six brochures and now it appears there are eight! I hope they keep new ones coming out regularly! Here are the eight brochures right now:
Such a fantastic resource and I have already used them for picking colors for a large remodel project I worked on. You can also access the brochures online at Sherwin-Williams here but looking at them in person really makes a HUGE difference as the photography and colors are so clear and gorgeous!
So many great paint and room ideas and really outstanding color combinations if your looking for some help and inspiration. Again, you can pick them up for free at your local Sherwin-Williams.
I really do sound like an infomercial don’t I? Oh well, hopefully this will help and inspire some of you with a new paint color or two! Let me know if you pick them up and which style is your favorite!
Have a wonderful rest of the week and a fantastic labor day! As always, thank you so much for your comments, emails and notes! It means so much to me to hear your feedback!
