I have one GIANT post coming. Like the biggest paint project I have ever done is finished. It’s gorgeous and I can not wait to share it with you! But I thought before I do, I’d share with you something that I’m totally loving! Have you ever thought of painting your house in one color palette?Sherwin-Williams partnered with HGTV to create these amazing new color palettes. Each of the 8 color palettes gives you 20 color choices to work with. Then within those 20 colors you can mix and match any of of them together and create a space that totally flows.With our first house I knew I didn’t want to keep the colors that were on the walls, but I really had no idea what colors I wanted to be there instead. I ended up picking at random paint colors that I had seen in other rooms. But do to that, there wasn’t really a flow in the house. I had warm colors in some rooms and cool colors in others. It wasn’t a big deal, but it started to wear on me. The only problem was I had no idea where to start. Thankfully for these color palettes I knew that our new house would have a nice flow from room to room. It would feel like it all belonged together. I chose, after bringing home about 5 or 6 of the palettes, to go with the Coastal Cool “peaceful, inviting, and fresh”. Now that we’ve painted over the rooms that didn’t fit into the color palette, everything works. Thankfully the basement was painted the a color that worked well into the palette… I did not want to paint so much square footage lol.
With in the pamphlet (which you can pick up any of them for free at a Sherwin-Williams or Lowes store) you’ll find color combination ideas, pictures of decoration that work well in the palettes, transitional ideas when you walk from room to room, pictures of the wallpaper that is also in color palette, as well as quick design tips. If you’re not planning a trip to one of these stores, all of the palettes are available to view online HERE. If for no other reason it’s fun to look at!There was so much stress that just left when I found these and knew I wasn’t going to have to look through hundreds of colors to find what I wanted on our walls. I hope this is a trend that other paint companies come up with soon as well! What do you think about having a whole house color palette? Would it solve any problems? Or do you like to pick and choose which colors you paint?
