Choosing a Color Palette

Happy Monday mamas!

My husband and I are closing on a new-to-us condo in a couple of weeks so my mind is constantly on how to make our new space feel like home.

We’ll be moving from a 650 square foot apartment to a townhouse style condo with 2,200 square feet and just thinking about how to make a space that’s almost 4 times the size of our current apartment beautiful and cohesive is a bit overwhelming.

The best plan of attack for me is to start with painting the walls as I’ve found that a simple coat of paint can change the look of a room in an instant. The current owner LOVES browns and tans (think tan walls, brown furniture, brown window treatments, tan decor) while my husband and I have more modern/contemporary tastes in the gray, greige, blues, blacks, and silver families.

Above are a couple of examples of the look we’ll be going for, but we will likely go with a lighter gray for the walls.

Of course I went to Pinterest to find some inspiration on creating a cohesive paint color palette for my space and found this amazing article¬†from TinySidekick which pretty much sums up what I’ve been looking for all in one spot!




She has some great tips on how to choose a color palette that will work with your color tastes whether they be monochromatic, harmonious, or complementary.

Can’t wait to get into my condo and start painting!
