Colour Palette of the Month: January

  “The seasons remind me that I must keep changing” –Donald Miller

With cold toes and the heat turned up, I can’t keep myself  from browsing travel sites and dreaming of a place where the sun fades the walls and doors lead to the ocean. However, with so many things I love being in the Maritimes, I can’t just take off to South America every time my wool socks aren’t doing the trick! That being said, it’s not quite so crazy to dream of a sun-kissed reno. This palette is inspired by the faded, yet vibrant, shades of the warmer parts of our world.

I couldn’t help being a little envious when I saw these stunning kitchens. First of all, I LOVE exposed beams, but the turquoise is so unexpected! These warm, neutral palettes come to life with splashes of colour in places you might not instinctively think of.

If you’re the type who wants the whole world in your living room, have it! Imagine sitting across the room dreaming of adventures to come!   Lots of full wall murals are available on the internet! You can order one of a map from Home Depot Here! If you’re not quite so adventurous, how about a dark teal wall? This colour takes an exotic twist when paired with detailed patterns, off-whites, and deep brown accents.

As much as I am wanting to reno my entire house in this palette, it makes an amazing bedroom for any age. The colours provide a good balance of both warm and cool colours. Another awesome feature, is that the teal works as either a wall colour or the accent colour. When teal is used as the backdrop, light, airy decor and a splash of coral keeps the room from being overwhelming. On the other hand, if you choose teal as your accent colour, you can be pretty bold! The gradient dresser would add a super stylish and fun touch to a guest room!

What do you think? Should the East Coast dream of Cape Town?

Colour Palette of The Month: October

“I’m so glad I live in a world with Octobers. It would be terrible if we just skipped from September to November, wouldn’t it?” -Anne Shirley.

The month of scarves and pumpkin spice lattes has “fallen” upon us! With temperatures cooling off outside, warm interior hues are a must! October couldn’t be a better month to incorporate this spicy palette! When looking for timeless decor, it’s important to balance bright colours with trend-setting neutrals. This warm palette does just that by incorporating both grey and brown with savory cinnamon, pumpkin, and vanilla.

We think these colours work well together to make an inviting common space. A warm backdrop will make guests feel welcome, while you will love spending down time cozying up with an exotic tea and book!

An alternative space for this palette is the Master bedroom. We are loving the idea of pairing a wooden wall with grey bedding and warm accents. This look artistically combines both modern style and classic comfort. Would you choose a spicy autumn palette for your living space or would you rather keep the cozy colours in the bedroom?

Colour Palette of the Month: September

It’s that time again! It’s time to unveil our choice for September’s Colour Palette of the Month!

 

This month we’ve chosen a palette that blends warm and cool tones and integrates the “yellowing” of the fall leaves. We think that just like the turning colour of the leaves, this dash of mustard next to the browns and greys will make your space pop. Not only does this palette convey all the warm and fuzzy feelings of fall but it is also very modern in its use of mustard and grey. While we think that this palette is perfect for any living room or master bedroom we also think that it would be dramatic as a bathroom colour palette. What do you think? What room would you use the palette for?

 

Colour Palette of the Month: July

This month’s colour palette is called “summer shade” and whether or not that’s what you need, this palette will look great in your home. With the natural warmth brought out by the browns next to the water-like blues, this palette will subtly remind you of the beach all year round. We recommend this palette particularly for bedrooms in your dream home! To help you in with picturing how the summer shade palette would look, here are some ideas via Pinterest.
