Colors for your home

We recommend creating a whole house color palette before you start painting your walls.

If you are indecisive about choosing the right color for your home then a color palette is a great way to help. Here are some steps you can take:

  • Create a home with a harmonious look that flows from room to room.

  • Make impulse decisions so you never have to think of it again.

  • Feel confident in the color choices you make

Every home can benefit from a whole house color scheme. It doesn’t matter if your home is an open floor plan or a series of separate rooms adding a color scheme around your home will create a warm feel and relaxation but choosing colors can be confusing and overwhelming so let us help…

Fixed Elements & undertone

The fixed elements in your home such as trim, cabinetry, flooring, wall tiles, and countertops. All of the fixed elements in your home automatically become part of your whole house color palette.

Undertone: Most of your fixed elements are probably a neutral color, even neutrals have color undertones. To help choose colors to go with your fixed elements, you should understand what undertone colors you are working with.

You can either match the undertones. If your undertones are mostly warm colors (red, orange, yellow), choose a wall color palette of warm colors. If your undertones are mostly cool colors (green, blue, purple), choose a wall color palette of cool colors. Or you can contrast against the undertones and do the complete opposite.

Color Scheme

 We advise you to choose your color scheme based on inspiration or start building a color scheme based on your favorite color. Your favorite color will lead you to the right color scheme. Once you know which color scheme is best, you can look for inspiration in nature, interiors, fashion, and fabrics to help you round out your palette.

 Here are three different color scheme examples:
 1.Monochromatic – Use one color for your entire color palette in different shades, tints, and tones.
 2. Analogous – Also known as harmonious, this color scheme uses colors close to, or next to each other on the color wheel. For example, blue, green, yellow or purple, red, orange. This color scheme feels relaxing and calm.
 3. Complementary – Complementary colors are directly opposite each other on the color wheel. For example, blue and orange, yellow and purple, red and green. This color scheme is more energetic and lively as it is all about contrast.


Neutrals are an important part of any color palette. You should consider choosing a white and/or a dominant neutral color.

White – The white you choose will be the default white color used for trim, cabinetry, furniture, and ceilings.

Neutral – This will be your go-to neutral color to use in all the connected areas of your home, such as open spaces, hallways, and lofts. It is also great for closets and bathrooms.

Bold Color

Bold meaning it will be the darkest or most saturated color. What color should you choose? A version of your favorite color, which either matches or complements the undertone of your fixed elements.

The second color you choose should compliment your bold color. If you are creating a monochromatic or complementary wall color palette, then we suggest choosing a lighter version of your bold color. If you are creating an analogous wall color palette, consider a color next to your bold color on the color wheel.

Accent Color

An accent color is a color used in small quantities to lift or to add punch to your color scheme. This is the color you use when you want to create a big WOW factor. An accent color should be a complementary color. It works best if it’s a bright, vibrant color. This color will be used sparingly in your home or used to create a dramatic impact.
