Is There Just One Perfect Color Palette For The Home?

the perfect coastal color palette

The colors in this palette are very typical of what most of my clients are looking for. With exception to the yellow, these colors fit really well in most homes.

Don’t have a Media Room? That can also be the office and actually, that room color can be much darker. A chocolate brown would be nice don’t you think?

I’m still scratching my head as to why yellow is such a hard sell. I can tell you this. It’s really hard to find the perfect, buttery yellow in ANY color palette. Yellows are usually too gold or too pastel. The one I designed here, is perfect. The only problem is -doesn’t it exist anywhere?

Blue is still very popular but I do see a decline in it. I so wish that green would step forward and take it’s place. It’s also hard to find the perfect green. I believe Valspar has some really nice ones!

I love the warm, creamy kitchen color. It’s the perfect color to warm up the room. If you have an open floor plan, this neutral will also be complimentary to the surrounding room colors. Also, kitchens don’t have that much wall space so a light color would really be perfect. Stay away from the grays in the kitchen – not a good way to start the day 🙂

What do you think?

    I love the neutral kitchen color. I’m so glad you did this post because that is the color we chose. We have a complete open floor plan. You can literally stand at my front door and see the entire living area of my home. Excluding the bedrooms and bath. I would like to do a accent wall color but I get overwhelmed in the decision since I have very little wall space. Picture this: a square room, two walls has windows and wall to wall patio doors, one wall has a wall to wall tall entertainment center and one has kitchen cabinets. So I bring in color with flowers, drapery, pillows and area rugs. Thanks for sharing your expertise, this makes me feel better about my choice. Love reading your post.

    Always trust your first color choices – you chose them for a reason. Your home sounds beautiful! I think color in areas rugs sounds perfect for you! Thank you so much.

  3. A great yellow IS hard to find! A lot of people gravitate towards the bright shades that are appealing in the store but on the walls they are so electric that the space is totally unlivable. One of my favourites is Benjamin Moore Cream Yellow and Filtered Sunlight

    I love these color choices you have made. We use most of them in our beach house. We are now building a home in Tennessee. It is getting close to me making paint color decisions. I have no idea what to do. I love grays and teals. Are they on their way out? I Iove Seasalt!!! We have a very open plan. I want to create a laid back atmosphere. I don’t think I want to create the “beachy” feel we created in FL. Have you designed more color palettes? If you could just point me to the right direction…It would be much appreciated. Thanks
