Our New Home Color Palette


I am THRILLED to share some exciting news with you….we are MOVING!  We have officially sold our house and are moving on.  It is definitely bitter sweet for us to say goodbye to our first house where we brought both our babies home, tackled countless DIYs, and made it our home together.   With that being said, however, we are so excited to move on to our “forever” home and start making it our own!

We don’t officially close on our new house for about another month, but if you know me at all… you KNOW I’ve been planning every inch of our new home so I can hit the ground running once we get those keys!

Even when moving is not on my agenda, I’m obsessing over paint colors – so now that we actually NEED to paint, it’s all I can think about!

I like to keep my entire house coordinated, while still giving everyone their own personality in their own spaces, so here’s  the color palette I’ve come up with for our entire house:


1.) Sherwin-Williams Storm Cloud

2.) Sherwin-Williams Liveable Green

3.) Sherwin-Williams Light French Gray

4.) Sherwin-Williams Sleepy Blue

5.) Sherwin Williams Naval

I am really happy with it (that’s not to say it won’t change over the next month) but I think I’ve got it pretty much locked down.   Here’s my basic plan:


Kitchen, Family Room, Living Room: SW Light French Gray

Powder Room: SW Sleepy Blue

Laundry Room/Mud Room: SW Naval

We are doing white trim, white molding and white doors throughout our entire house.  Our kitchen cabinets in the new house are currently birch – I was contemplating painting them white, but I do like the pop of wood – so we’re going to leave them (for now).  Our laundry room/mud room is HUGE and also has birch cabinets and this AMAZING birch mudroom cubby/bench storage solution that I am in L-O-V-E with! Here is our color scheme for downstairs:



The upstairs has 4 bedrooms (one will be a playroom), a hallway bath and a master bath.  We are replacing all the doors, closet doors and trim and making it all white.  We are adding some crown molding to add some character and charm. Here’s my plan for the upstairs color palette:

Master Bedroom, My Son’s Bedroom:  SW Sleepy Blue

Hallway Bathroom, Master Bathroom, My Daughter’s Room: SW Liveable Green

Playroom: SW Storm Cloud

Upstairs Hallway: SW Light French Gray


So what do you think?

Now that I’ve picked some paint colors, it’s on to styling every room!  I cannot WAIT to get into our new home, and start getting to work!  In the meantime, I’ll just be Pinterest-ing and planning! 😉

    I think it will be beautiful just like your old home, can’t wait to see it. Who am I going to ask for help when I am picking colors for my house, you won’t be next door.

    I know this is so weird, but I am a huge fan of the birch wood grain and I really cannot wait to see your cabinets! I LOVE that French Grey and think it would look so good with some pops of wood 🙂 So excited for you and your new home! Can’t wait to see what you do with it 🙂

      Thanks, Shara! I’m excited for the pop of wood actually too! I had white cabinets in my old house and I’m ready for a change!
