Just like finding the right furniture and accessories for your home takes time, finding the right color palette takes time too, and often some trial and error. In a recent spate of color updates (you can read about them here, here and here), I've worked to bring a little more energy and texture into our place, but also to unify the colors throughout. Fortunately, everything was already naturally inclined to harmonize (that's really thanks to my limited color comfort zone, more than any deliberate planning), but just needed that extra nudge.
So our place went from this...
... a mish-mosh of espresso wood tones, glossy whites, beige, light blue and green...
... a much more cohesive palette of espresso wood and bright glossy white base elements, beige, robin's egg blue and sage green tones as main colors, and turquoise and lime green as the occasional accent color.
The flow throughout the whole condo has improved a ton, and now everything feels like it belongs together. And believe me... that's very novel for me!
What do you think? Is a whole house color scheme a good thing? Or should you just decorate each room as you choose, independent of the others?
