WHOLE HOME COLOR PALETTES
I often get asked for my input on choosing the "right" colors for a home. Most people have a clear idea of what they like and don't like, but putting it all together and carrying a color story successfully throughout the space can be a challenge. For me, it's not the colors themselves that are important (everyone has their own tastes and preferences!) but the relationship between the colors that really brings a home together, giving it a sense of balance and harmony. With this in mind, I've developed some color palettes to be used throughout your entire space, that can be easily downloaded to your device or printed out. Browse the palettes below and download as many as you'd like!
WHAT YOU'LL GET:
Color palette Introduction, with 3 or 4 "base colors" from the color wheel that I've chosen as the foundation for the palette. I'll explain why these hues work together.
A Color List, with 12 refined, real-life versions of the base colors. I've chosen Benjamin Moore paint colors, but these colors aren't just for paint--they are meant to be used when choosing your furnishings, window treatments, and accessories as well.
A Color Map, with suggestions on how to mix and match these colors in the spaces of your home.
Tips and Tricks for implementing the palette in your real space.
