Color Palette

Over time a color palette has been created throughout our home. White walls are the canvas which we have layered with color. I am not sure if it has been a conscious decision (in some cases yes) but I have repeated the same colors throughout over and over. In terms of designing our space, I didn't really have a plan. I did have a layout and an idea of what scale/proportions(of non- existing items) I wanted, but as far as color went, I just buy what I love, and let that take form naturally. Whenever I paint something, or add a new addition to the space it just so happens to be in the colour family of the hues displayed above. Funny how we become accustomed to what we like. I have about 10 different shades of lipsticks, glosses and tints, all within a shade of each other. If I like something I continue to incorporate it into my life, even if it isn't completely apparent to me! Isn't that strange! We are after all creatures of habit! 

Here is how to create a color palette: 
-Begin with a print or fabric that you really love
- Look for colors that will be complimentary
- Layer textured fabrics over top/ layer with decorative objects in color scheme desired
- Find a theme and play on that- not too literal
- Buy colors within the same family, and experiment with different shades

Have a great weekend!! xoxo
