THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED. THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO ENTERED. CLICK HERE TO SEE WHO WON!
Truthfully, other than picking up on some of the controversies surrounding Sochi's anti-LGBTQ policies, I haven't paid much attention to the Olympic Winter Games. I've lived in a bubble, selfishly focused on the lakehouse. Without television, I've whiled away my evenings painting. Wait until you see how I've brightened the space so far! With the Winter Games now in full swing, it seems some design enthusiasts are distracted from focusing on the sporting events and politics, and intrigued by the international inspiration that can be gleaned from the event. Leading Canadian paint brand CIL® has great ideas for bringing colours from around the globe into our spaces here in Canada. They've looked to the games as a way to pick up some gold-medal worthy design ideas! What a great time to introduce a watery blue palette inspired by the Mediterranean, or mod neutrals imported from Scandinavia.
In the spirit of the games, how would you like a chance to win something? Thanks to CIL, one of my Canadian readers is going to win 3 gallons of paint to makeover a room or two.
This contest is only open to Canadians (sorry my non-Canadian friends, but CIL has been proudly Canadian since 1927).
The winner can pick any CIL colour and paint finish. Literally anything your heart desires. It won't be difficult to find your perfect colour - there are more than 1200.
Contest closes Sunday, February 23rd at 12pm EST. Check back Monday the 24th to see if you'll spend a few days with paint in your hair, like me!
It's easy to enter, just leave a comment answering the question below:
Have you ever been inspired by a certain city or country when decorating your own space?
If I were to answer, I might cheat and admit that I absolutely love the chic, Canadiana lodge look I've spotted more than once in Canadian House & Home magazine. Think Hudson's Bay blankets, warm woods and creamy white walls. I haven't tried the look yet, but maybe someday!

Disclosure: I was approached by CIL to run a giveaway for my readers centered on the theme of the Winter Games. I was more than happy to partner with a great Canadian company to connect you with a fab freebie. These words are all my own. I was not compensated in any way for running this giveaway, although I will be working with CIL in the future for a paint makeover of my own! All photos and images are from CIL.ca.
