Guess what’s going on in the McDermott household these days?

Dean and I have teamed up with Valspar on the 2013 Valspar Color Project to find our perfect color match and help raise funds for Habitat for Humanity.  We may have found our perfect match in each other, but to find our color match we commissioned the help of Designer and Valspar Color Expert Genevieve Gorder – check out how we did it on the Valspar Paint Facebook page.


The result: Valspar Rushing Stream 5005-10B, a peaceful, calming blue reminiscent of a clear, cloudless sky or the ocean on a mid-summer’s day.  We used this cool shade of blue to transform our kids’ playroom. And guess what? If you don’t love your color, no worries! Because with the Valspar Love Your Color Guarantee*, you’re guaranteed another color on Valspar!

Now it’s your turn! Valspar wants to help you find your perfect color match based on your personality with the Valspar Perfect Match App. Visit the Valspar Color Project tab on Facebook, watch how we found our color match and then take the quiz to find your own. Here’s the best part: when you share your color match, Valspar donates $1 to Habitat for Humanity.

Take the quiz RIGHT HERE! 

For each share of a color match between March 19, 2013, and June 10, 2013, Valspar will donate $1 to Habitat for Humanity, with a minimum of $25,000 and up to $150,000.
