Office Inspiration: Chip It! by Sherwin-Williams
Another big blessing came my way in the form of a partnership with Sherwin-Williams, which came just in time for my house renovation. I’ve got a whole house to paint, and this opportunity will certainly come in handy as I transform my fixer-upper house into a beautiful one. Paint will be a HUGE part of that process. Let’s take a look at the room that will one day be my office space.
Right now, it’s not much to look at, but it will be one day. The window has now been trimmed out and the carpet is gone.
And I’ve got big plans for this little room.
If you’ve been with me for a while, you know this is my old office nook at my previous house in Birmingham. That was a small 6’x9′ space, but I made it live BIG. Now that I’ll have an even bigger room, I plan to make it even better. This new office will really serve me well as a home blogger, and I can’t wait to get started on it. Sherwin-Williams has a handy-dandy new online color tool that is fun to work with. Called Chip It!, it is a free little tool that you can drag to your toolbar (much like the Pin It button for Pinterest). When you see a cool colorful pic online whose colors you love, you can just click that little Chip It! button on your toolbar.
It grabs the colors in your pic and gives you the paint colors to coordinate with that picture! How totally cool is that? The Chip It! tool makes a palette that will be perfect for your room and even spells out the actual paint colors to coordinate. Now, that is fun! Takes the guesswork out of coming up with the right colors. For instance, the above picture of an outfit–which I love, by the way–shows some color combinations using my favorite shade of green. See how it pulls all the hues in the pic and comes up with several paint colors that look great together? That’s the beauty of the Chip It! toolbar button!
You all know how much I love green, so I’m sure I’ll go in that direction again for my office space, but I hope to make it even fresher this time. Be sure to check out the Chip It! video to see how it works and then drag the Chip It! button below to your toolbar for easy chipping:
Chip my second image and guess which one I’m going to use in my own office and you’ll be entered to win a $1,000 Visa gift card and a $200 Sherwin-Williams gift card.
