Consider this a public service since we have spent way too much time today trying to recreate this information.
That picture up there? That is from Sherwin Williams — it originally came out in a television commercial in 2003. I know because that was when we painted our bedroom like that. We loved the look, and I got the paint colors by emailing Sherwin Williams’ customer service. We’re starting to repaint the house and wanted to refresh the color, but of course I can’t find my paint chips now.
But thanks to my google-fu and vague memories, I can now tell you this:
- The base wall color is “Soar” (SW 6799)
- The brighter blue squares are “Regale Blue” (SW 6801)
- The purple squares are “Mesmerize” (SW 6544)
- There is a metallic silver translucent glaze applied as a top coat
The process is fairly straightforward: paint the base coat, let dry. Tape off rectangles in your desired size and pattern, apply Regale Blue or Mesmerize and then sponge/wipe off to your desired level of translucence, let dry. Remove the tape, reset and retape and apply another layer of squares. Let dry, and apply a third layer of squares (if desired) or paint with the silver glaze.
