This is a sponsored review from BlogHer and Valspar Paint.
CONGRATS to Belle + Bee winner of the 1st $100 gift card to Lowe's!
If you're joining us for the first time, we're repainting Lucy's room and trying to find the perfect color for her walls. You can see our process here.
This painting project is a FOUR-PART series which means that every Wednesday for the next few weeks I'll be hosting a new GIVEAWAY. I'll show you my paint progress and you can win something big! So make sure you check back next week and the week after that as well.
Okay, thank you bloggy friends for helping me narrow down a paint color. You were all so detailed in your comments and pretty specific about the Valspar paints color you'd use. It was really fun to see what color schemes are on your mind. And some of those same ideas have been floating around in my head too! But since I seem to fall into similar patterns, you also helped think outside of the box as well.
I never tire of looking at colors and creating a new palette. So....here are a few of my favorites, from the colors you chose, using the Valspar Color Tool. Half the time I can't decide if it's really the color I like or the clever name that accompanies it! Wouldn't you like to live in a room called Lime Passion? Mmmmm.
Okay, here are some of my favorites:
TOP BANANA ** ORANGE FRUIT ** LIME PASSIONSo many beautiful tones; so many clever names! It'll be hard to choose. But have no fear! When redecorating a room, I often go to the internet for inspirational photos. And guess what, you can do that right on the Valspar Paints site. No joke. Just go to the design gallery (under "Project Ideas") and you can browse through hundreds of photos of finished (gorgeous) rooms. It's like thumbing through a magazine online. Brilliant.
Use the drop-down menu to select from your personal style: traditional, modern, cottage cottage, craftsman, rustic. Or select by designers.
I made a new discovery, I guess I'm a Traditional/Modern/Vintage type. It's something I've suspected (a mix of a few things) but looking through their gallery of photos helped me confirm that.
So....want to see what's on my mind? Here are photos of inspiration from the Valspar design gallery:
