It's been three months since we closed on our next chapter home and I am still struggling with color palettes and style. What can I say? I am a conflicted woman and I love it all. The trick is pulling what I love together.
I knew from the start that one of my colors would be coral. That perfect blend of pink and orange.
But what about accent colors? My first thought was pool blue.
And I've always thought that chartreuse is such a great neutral. I gives life to any color.
My design wheels are spinning.
I've never been a blue person. In fact, I've always run from blue. I think it is still a bit of a hangover from all of those country blues of the 80's and 90's. Somehow, though, here in a coastal state I find myself flirting with the cool blue side of the color wheel.
I have spent more hours than I would care to admit thinking and rethinking this whole color conundrum. Primarily I am considering how the colors will flow throughout the house, but I also think about the view from the front door towards the pool.
My inspiration painting, that now hangs on the living room wall is also directing my color choices just like I had planned.
So, even though that pool blue was my first infatuation, my latest crush is maybe a bit more sophisticated shade of blue. Still vibrant, but a bit richer, I'm toying with cobalt blue.
This new color had me playing on Polyvore again and last night's creation looks like this.
