{Inspired By} A Color Scheme for Your Home

I get so inspired to work on my house around the holidays! It might be weird, but almost every Thanksgiving no matter what house I’m living in, I start painting walls. It makes for a little bit of Christmas decorating chaos, but it’s worth it :). This house is no exception, we are finishing up painting our hallway and starting our bedroom paint right now (insert a little jump for joy!). I am pretty excited to be able to get all settled into at least these two areas of our house with the right wall color for us before Christmas.

I mentioned in my last post about how the pinkish-beige color of “swine” affects me in my home. You may not even be aware of the impact of the colors in your house, especially if you have neutral paint on your wall, but it still impacts how your home feels! We (those of us who are home-lovers!) likely all have our own inner-sense of what feels right to us, whether we are in tune with it or not.

We might feel “unsettled” in a space and not realize why. We might struggle with how our house feels, and we might start to decorate a room thinking the problem must be that we have too much or too little furnishings or all the wrong accessories and all the while, it was the foundation of our room that was keeping us from feeling settled in our space.

While it would be wonderful to just visit a blog and say, I love her wall colors and I’m going to paint my whole house exactly like hers, it isn’t always that easy. It isn’t just a matter of what colors we like or don’t like. Every one of our homes will be unique, even aside from our personal style. There are so many things that impact how our own space interprets color, from the part of the country we live in, to the natural light in our home, to the wood floors, the tile, or color of carpet or tone of the cabinetry, to what colors are in the adjoining room, and more. I find it all impacts color. Even white can take on a different look in different rooms or different houses, so white isn’t always a foolproof choice.

You might see a photo of a house with all white walls and love how it looks in a picture, but worry that in your house it would feel cold and lifeless. You might fear gray or brown toned walls would look dreary in your house or believe that you would dislike colored walls when in fact that might be the right choice for your home. I might say I don’t prefer a particular shade of paint at my house, but it might be perfect in yours!

Each and every option can be absolutely beautiful when put in the right space.

Theme Builder Layout

When I say my walls are swine-y and that color sucks the life out of my house, that’s only how it impacts me and the things that are in my house. Remember, I live in the Pacific NW so the same colors I choose may or may not suit someone in the South, or in the Southwest, or the NE. And even if the color itself works, you’ll have to look at your own floors, your wood tones and the lighting in you home to see what exact shade makes YOUR home come to life!

A week or so ago, I visited Epcot® at Walt Disney World Resort® for a whirlwind trip to the grand opening of a wonderful new exhibit called Colortopia, sponsored by Glidden at the Innoventions Pavillion at Epcot®. I had a lot of fun, the exhibit really made the concept of color fun for kids and adults alike. My favorite part was a virtual painting booth where you got to use a magic paint brush made of fiber optics and “paint” a mural! It was pretty cool, I’d recommend you stop in next time you are at Epcot! You can see a short video of me having fun “painting” at the Colortopia exhibit, below.

 

 

I am still not an expert on the science of it all, but in my own home I definitely have learned to recognize when a wall color works or doesn’t work. Many bloggers may be influenced by what they believe photographs well, but I always make my choices based upon what color is right in REAL life, not just photos. Since we have to live here and all :).

Even though you have to play with color in your own home in order to make the right choice, you certainly can incorporate a color scheme you love and make it work! You should love the colors in your home. I love to be inspired by places I’ve been, whether it is a country I love, a vacation destination or a fun shop I enjoy visiting locally or even someone’s else’s home.

I recently wrote a post over on Glidden about how color can be inspired by a country you love, you can check it out here.

Theme Builder Layout

Places you love or rooms that inspire you can definitely inspire a color scheme. You might even find a color for your walls from a fabric you love. The secret to a successful color scheme will likely be in the color tones or shades you choose and the mix of color that is right for your own house. Whether you use a color you love on the walls or use it in another way, you will likely will just have to play around with your color scheme in a room to get it right for your house.

I’m heading back to Florida this week to see the 2016 HGTV Dream Home. I AM SO EXCITED I can hardly stand it. I’ll be Instagramming pics as I go through the house Thursday, so I hope you’ll follow along (find me here)! I’ll follow up here on the blog with a post too!

    I agree so much about there being so many things that influence how a color looks in a space. I have painted three different rooms in my house Benjamin Moore Horizon and it looks a bit different in each room. In the room that gets very little natural light the walls look almost taupe. The room with evergreen trees outside the paint looks bluish and in the room that faces east it looks more aqua. But I love it in every room because I tested it on the walls first!

    I am inspired by the colors of the U.K. We just finished repainting our whole house with antique white and I find I am using greys, browns and teal for accent colors.
    However, my kitchen is definitely Tuscan inspired with buttery yellow Venetian plaster walls, warm red brown cabinets with muted dark green cabinets mixed in, soapstone counters and sink and a beautiful glass tile backsplash with all of those colors together.

    I am decorating challenged, but always thought “I know when I see it”. The Canada colors are the ones that I had an instant reaction to, and I like them upon further consideration. But I like your Japan colors too. I feel like it would really make a difference with the style of home, I guess?

    Hello and Thank You for your wonderfully inspiring posts and the opportunity to enter into a give away from Home Depot, one of my favorite stores! I would have to say that the colors of the UK are the most inspiring for me.

These are the colors that make my home my happy place.

    My husband is definitely stuck in the colors of Japan. I still have not found my country! It would include a “candy apple” red. We compromised by painting one red wall behind the front door, (it fools you into thinking there is another room back there), and one at the end of the hall, (that one draws your eye in that direction and makes the hall appear longer). Our home is 640 square feet and I use every trick I can to make it feel larger. I like to place mirrors across from, or adjacent to, windows to reflect the light and the trees.

    I think we are very Asian inspired in the PNW due to the beauty that is also found in the far east country of Japan. It is starkness but with a sense of warmth and embracing the simple and nature itself. My city home is all Japan and my island home is Norway, as it should be since it is surrounded by water. I agree that colors are the strongest message of a home. Thankfully, our next door neighbors in the city have decided to redo their house color scheme (charcoal gray roof done- Cornflower blue and ivory trim house next spring with charcoal doors!) and it will really now go with ours (light gray house, charcoal gray trim but no roof shows from modern approach and same color Cornflower blue doors). When you only have four neighbors on a private drive, color scheme is very important. I almost wanted to say that as we went around saying what we were thankful for during the T-day feast. I did not even discuss it with them… happy dance~~~ and we just added the green doors (trim to come) for the island homes. Would do more outside but the rains of winter are upon us. Now we will concentrate as you have on our inner color scheme.

    Just reading your blog and your new colors from Japan are my favorite! I love the Medici Gray, Dove White, Crisp White and Rich Navy. I had to smile when I read that you like to paint at Thanksgiving. I started painting my family room on Saturday after Thanksgiving and changed my drab gold walls and dark window coverings to white…I just love how fresh and clean everything looks! I chose a light gray for my walls called White Lies from Behr. I love how fresh it looks. I too live in the NW and my family room tends to be a dark room, this fresh look is just what it needed. I am also painting a couple of key furniture pieces I have had for years. Love receiving your emails! Congratulations on your book and all the fun places you get to go All the best in loving the new space your in!

    Best,

    My daughter is giving me a “kitchen face lift” for Christmas. All of her gifts this year are acts of service, which is so precious! I have lived a “colorful kitchen” life for 20+ years, so we are changing to a toned down, light tan/gray wall with white cabinets and bead board. They bought me all white dishes for Mother’s Day. I am so excited!!!! I will still have “harvest gold formica” countertops for now, but the rest is a precious gift of a labor of love! Thank you for your inspirations. And I love Norway and Japan!

    You put into words exactly what I was going through in my own house with paint color. My living room had green walls, a pretty green at that. The room just wasn’t comfortable or “pretty” to me. I changed the area rug to white thinking it would brighten things up. It did but I still wasn’t happy. I bought a light tan ottoman for a coffee table (mostly for grandson safety) but also to brighten things up. Eh! Then I went for it and painted the walls shaker beige. Aaaah! I loooove the room now. It makes me happy to walk by and look in. It makes me want to go in! Paint made all the difference.

    I was most inspired by the Colors of Italy palate. Thanks for offering the Home Depot giveaway. I’d love to win and go buy more paint!

    I’ll have to say I just LOVE the colors from Norway! They remind me of the simple joys and natural elements of the outdoors of Alaska. I’ve always loved the neutrals but also like little pops of color throughout my home. The Norway post perfectly combined all the basic neutrals (so similar to the colors of the caribou in Alaska!) with the rustic charms of evergreens, worn-out cabins, and long winters of Alaska. Just perfect! I can’t wait to get started on pulling ideas from these colors into revamping my home during this holiday season for my family guests coming for Christmas. Thank you for sharing!

    I was inspired by the colors from th U.K. I love the grays, mauves and teal. They are romantic colors. What a fun way to think about color.

    I love the colors of Japan! I have always loved the combination of blues, browns, tans, , and soft whites/creams and have just recently added greys to the mix! Love this combination as it restores calmness and serenity to me after a busy day!

    Wait! I chose Japan because of the serenity in color palette. But, I had trouble on my iPad seeing all the other choices (I had wondered why there were so few choices–so I went back to reinvestigate the offerings). Lo & Behold! Italy & France! I am a mix of the two, but if I had to choose one, it would be France! Now, these colors are a better fit for my personality and colors that just “speak” to me–I almost want to “eat” colors I love, if that makes any sense!

    I lean more towards the Canada color pallet. I like the warmth these colors make a room feel. Of course it could have something to do with living in MI and being a Canadian neighbor ;-)

    Oh my I love the colors of the UK!!! That’s the exact palette (with the addition of a dark teal) that I’ve been building my house towards but couldn’t find a way to refine the what, how and why of what I wanted.

    And it’s so true some houses are suited for specific colors. I love red, it’s my favorite color, but the house didn’t feel right with it. I still have it in my office area because I love it but the rest of the space needs cool tones like the UK colors. Don’t know why but it does!

    I am shocked to find the colors I gravitate toward in Norway! It had seemed to me to be a “cool” color country. Is this a sign that I should do more traveling? This exercise is just the thing for choosing the color of white for my living room. Colortopia site was fun to explore. Thanks for the tip.

    The color combinations are all great, but I’d have to say my favorite is Norway. I love that
    they are muted and have a clean, relaxing appearance. Thanks for the giveaway!!
