I'm linking up to the handmade home today, as Ashley posed a fun question about color in your home. What is your latest obsession or inspiration when it comes to color? I'm in the process of putting my personal stamp on our still-new-to-us home, so here we go...
I have fallen in love with different shades of blue lately, and that is what I have been incorporating in my home. There is the family room which I painted in Benjamin Moore's Palladian Blue:
And how can you not be inspired by something even as simple as this?
We have a goal/plan to paint our kitchen cabinets, and this is a glimpse at the color palette we are planning to use. Since the space is so open, we want the rooms to flow together.
I got a taste of some of the color we're going to use in the kitchen, when I painted this nook in Benjamin Moore's Mountain Laurel:
A before/after view of the nook too in case you're interested:
In our master bedroom, it's a soothing grayish-blue, called Mineral Deposit by Sherwin Williams, and I. love. it. I swear, my blood pressure drops when I walk into this room.
In my office space, my starting point was fabric.
I painted this room Muslin by Sherwin Williams, and it continues to evolve and has been a project that I have been working on lately. Hope to have more to share soon...
And then there is my powder room redo - going from dark wallpaper to a fresh look with the help of Benjamin Moore's Bird's Egg and a fun stencil.
There is so much inspiration in the world of color these days it can make my head spin! I have also been loving the color combination of aqua and coral. Isn't it just lovely?
Or other lovelies like these:
Or even a palette you wouldn't have thought of on your own:
Seeing pictures like this causes me to rethink some of my rooms - wanting to inject some of these colors into my own home!
What colors inspire you?
