For more than 100 years, the family at Guiry’s has helped customers enliven interior spaces with a continually expanding selection of paint, wallpaper, furniture items, and art supplies. Specialty paints include textured gallons by Ralph Lauren, which swathe rooms in tones and finishes borrowed from natural suede or river rock ($39.99). After covering studio spaces with hues that are conducive to creativity, patrons may continue coating stretched canvases ($2.35+) with brushes ($2.39+), oils ($4.06+), and acrylics ($2.66+). Guiry’s also stocks children’s art kits ($14.96) and customizable Munnyworld dolls, which sport blank expressions until children unveil their individual personalities via creative brushstrokes or hours of shouting.
When brothers Joseph and Herb Guiry founded the paint store that bears their name, Denver was still an untamed frontier town, William McKinley was President, and the flag still had 45 stars and not a single cartoon dog. The year was 1899, and, in the hundred-plus years since, the store has remained a family tradition across four generations of shopkeepers. Today, the store’s seven locations carry paints for everything from houses to school projects, and supplement their stock with home decorations including lighting, wallpaper, and furniture.
