Olympic Color: Freebie Winner

Ok, now it’s time to find out who’s about to get painted thanks to this week’s giveaway from Olympic. And hopefully you guys had fun playing with the ColorClix tool like we did. Anyone come up with any great or unexpected color combos?

As for our winners, we’ve doused in zero VOC paint and it revealed the names of the three folks who are getting a room full of paint…. Mira Williams (who has some paneling to brighten up), MLJ (who has a patched living room wall that needs painting) and Margie M (who has two new grandkids on the way, meaning two nurseries to paint). Congrats everyone! We’d love to know what colors you’ve got your eyes on.

And don’t worry if you didn’t win this week. Monday’s giveaway is coincidentally also paint related, but it comes from an artist unlike any that we’ve ever seen. Stay tuned…

Fab Freebie: Olympic Color

***This giveaway is no longer accepting entries***

Paint a smile on your faces people, because that’s what we’re giving away this week! Paint, that is, not smiles (though hopefully smiles sort of come along with getting a prize, right?). This week we’re giving away a room full of paint from Olympic (that means 2 gallons of Olympic Premium Interior Paint and 1 gallon of primer) to THREE people. Woo hoo! We love this stuff because now no matter what color you get mixed, it’s still 100% VOC-free. Can’t beat that, right? And that’s exactly why we used it in our bathroom remodel earlier this year. Plus, Olympic just launched a new, free desktop application called ColorClix to help inspire your perfect palette.

Once downloaded, the little ColorClix box invites you to click anywhere on your desktop – a photo, a video, an icon, whatever – and syncs that color with one in the Olympic catalog. Like if I wanted to build a room around the adorable picture of a snoozing chihuahua I’d just have to click anywhere on his fur to get an Olympic paint color (apparently Burger’s eyebrow is “Stony Creek”). It also displays the rest of the colors on the virtual swatch as well as recommended complimentary colors.

The program also lets you save all of your inspiration colors in projects sorted by room and then you can use those saved projects to virtually paint rooms on You know, if you really wanted to go as far as to let your dog’s coloring determine the coloring of your walls.

So go have some fun playing with ColorClix and check out the rest of this week’s details:
