Picking the right paint color never seems to get easier, but it helps when you see examples and how they’re used together. My niece just bought her first house, and much like me, she likes a good earthy coastal color palette. While I scoured Pinterest for some color ideas for her, I realized my house could be a springboard. So, I decided to put together a “house color” post with examples and a clear visual of how they look together.
Creating a color palette graphic is the absolute best way to stay on track when you first begin decorating your home. You may not use the colors exactly, but they provide a good plan when looking for fabrics, art, furniture accessories, and, of course, rugs. I always say if you like a color, stay within 4-5 shades of it. Both Benjamin Moore and Sherwin-Williams have shade variation paint samples, which is my secret tool.
You can find the full bedroom post here, along with the sources. White Dove is a tried and true non-yellow creamy off-white. I would highly recommend it.
The mudroom refresh was simple, but it was a great way to introduce a floral wallpaper. It pairs so well with Benjamin Moore Classic Gray. It’s another paint you can’t go wrong with.
This was one of my favorite projects above. With a little paint and creativity, I turned this Billy Bookcase into an arched cabinet for all of our books and games.
This DIY potting bench was an old workbench. I knew a bold but soft blue would be perfect and very low commitment, hence the choice of Boothbay Gray. It serves as a potting bench and also a serving area.
Onto accessories hues. These are my go-to colors for pillows, throws, accessories, rugs, and art below.
You can find the harlequin diamond rug here. It really makes the space. Again, I loved the idea of using chocolate brown and wanted to use it in a big way. In case you missed Nancy Meyers Inspired Office Refresh, you can click HERE.
