Do you know the first item on any list of makeovers? Paint!
It’s the most significant and minimal investment you can make when transforming a space. It can completely change it! For instance, I recently revamped Gordon’s room in my nephew’s home. After a quick visit to Sherwin-Williams for two Gallons of paint and two hours changing the entire room’s appearance!
Here’s the prior version.
I want to take the credit for the color palette. However, these wall shades are from Sherwin Williams’ latest Living WellTM line. They’ve arranged some of their most soothing shades into 11 palettes to help you unwind and breathe more peace into your home.
Each palette is unique in its style and color that is current. For example, the Balancing palette I picked is woodland-inspired, including plenty of warm neutrals and soft greens. I chose Lemongrass SW 7732 and Dover White SW 6385. I’ve wanted to create another project that features a pale green ever since I put Ruskin Room Green on the bookcases in my office! I went with the Balance palette because the shades are very natural serene, and soft and also matched well with the wooden tones of Gordon’s furniture. I wanted to ensure the space was calm yet still had a lively, bright pop of color.
My second most-loved Living Well palette is Unplug, centered around warm desert vibes. It also has some of the desert dust colors I’ve seen in Southern Utah! If you’re more inclined to gravitate towards cool blues, look into The Focus.
Together with The Living Well palettes are two brand new SuperPaint(r) products exclusively available at Sherwin-Williams.
They took their most-loved SuperPaint (one of my favorite products!) and added two types of technology to make two brand-new goods that don’t only enhance the beauty of a room and beautiful, but also help to provide a sense of peace and well-being at home. For Gordon’s bedroom, I used SuperPaint and Air Purifying Technology. It’s a low VOC formula that helps to improve indoor air quality by helping to reduce VOCs within your home from sources such as carpets, cabinets, and even fabrics. Also, it helps keep rooms cleaner and longer by utilizing technology to break down odors that are not needed in your home. *
Nearly everything made from plywood to paint and carpets to blankets includes VOCs. VOC is the abbreviation of Volatile Organic Compound. In its most basic, sit is a chemical compound that emits gases into the air. Mainly related to paint, VOC ratings are different according to the product’s intended use (floor coating as opposed to. wall paint and. furniture paint). If you look at the most stringent requirements, it has to be less than 50 grams per Liter (for example, ten years ago, most water-based paints were about 200 grams/liter). A lower than 50 is deemed low VOC compared to 200 grams/L VOC, which is fantastic.
The highest concentration of VOCs is released while using the product, i.e., when the paint is still damp. After drying, it will let the VOCs disappear into the air. After drying (and after your home has been air-conditioned), VOC emissions can be drastically diminished. The main reason for the demand for low and no VOC paint is not solely for its safety for human beings (though it is a benefit); however, it is because of the greenhouse gases they release into the atmosphere after it has left your home.
The paint was fantastic to use. It’s excellent coverage, and knowing it’s free of VOCs and effectively eliminates smells makes me feel satisfied with the use of it in Gordon’s bedroom! After a crazy year, 2020, We all deserve a relaxing environment, And the Living Well collection helps you achieve this.
The third new paint is SuperPaint(r) which comes with Sanitizing Technology. It’s an EPA-certified paint, eliminating 99.9 percent of certain bacteria. It will continue to kill as high as 90 percent of these bacteria for up to 4 years. It’s ideal for high-traffic areas such as hallways, kitchens, and bathrooms! Please take a look at it for your next design!
Gordon’s room was influenced by the space of my Grandpa, of all people. Who was simply the best and the source of my DIY determination. He was an avid outdoorsman with planes, the air, and indigenous American culture, which is why that was the starting of the room in terms of style. The hat used to be his everyday hat!
I like how the colors blend and play with natural tones in wood and décor. The room has become tranquil and peaceful for Gordon and his family, yet still entertaining. The simple process of creating this color-block wall pattern is so simple! Begin by painting one color (in this case, we choose the darker color! ).
We began by putting an easy laser line across the room around 3/3 of the way into the wall.
Here’s a hint: place your line to create an apparent cushion surrounding furniture. You don’t want it to be the exact size of the dresser. In this instance, I discovered an area higher than the dresser and only smaller than the headboard!
The key to achieving the perfect line of paint is to back bleed paint color onto the walls (check for this IG Highlight reel to witness the process in action! ).
The tape was then put up. We painted the second coat on the wall. We pulled off the painter’s tape after the second coat remained somewhat tacky. Tada! Perfect paint lines!!

The amount of time SuperPaint is used with Air Purifying Technology actively reduces formaldehyde and odors depends on the amount of paint and frequency of exposure and the size of the surface to be painted.
SuperPaint with Sanitizing Technology kills 99.9% of Staph (Staphylococcus aureus), E. coli (Escherichia coli), MRSA (Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus), VRE (Vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus faecalis) and Enterobacter aerogenes on painted surfaces within two hours of exposure, and continues to kill 90% of bacteria for up to four years when the integrity of the characters maintained.
