Our upcoming move from Wisconsin to Kentucky has meant a lot of packing and purging. It also has caused me to think long and hard about what I want to take with me and also how we would like to style our new home.
When staging our current house for sale, I really stripped the rooms to the bare bones in an effort to appeal to as many potential buyers as possible. Our master bedroom (from our listing photos) below ended up so fresh, yet so welcoming. It still is a little empty for my personal taste, but I loved how the staging turned out. It also has led me to a decision on my whole house color scheme.
I really like the idea of a whole house color scheme. It gives such a cohesive feel to a home and also allows furnishings/decor to be interchangeable between rooms. For most of our married life, my color scheme has been burgundy/gold/green/rust. I really love those colors. In the last few years, I worked those colors into my whole house color scheme and enjoyed the ability to change things up just by "shopping" my house.
Our new house is an open concept - a stark contrast to our traditional salt box home. I think I need to be much more intentional with my decor and a more subtle color scheme is in order.
I love the neutral tones in our current master bedroom, the combo of dark stain and white paint and the different shades of green - from the plaid throw, sage & olive pillows to the greenery and olive side tables.
So, my whole house color scheme will be a mix of soft neutrals, greens and wood tones. Our interior walls are being painted Crushed Silk throughout, with white ceilings and trim.
PPG Crushed Silk
Love this green by Joanna Gaines and I will be using it (as well as wide range of greens) in accessories and textiles.
Magnolia Home Regal Leaf
The floor below will be installed throughout every room of our house. I think this will really add warmth to the lighter tones of the walls, woodwork and kitchen cabinets.
I will be ordering two of the pretty green checked chairs for our kitchen sitting area. Our table and cabinets are white, so this pop of color will add some coziness and warmth to the room. They could easily be used in our master bedroom and home office as well.
I have ordered this pretty green throw to toss on our creamy neutral living room furniture.
I used some Christmas cash to buy my first ever Kitchen Aid in this pistachio green. It will be a colorful touch in our all white kitchen. I'm also looking forward to mixing up cookie dough with our grandson some day!
This chenille bedding really spoke to me and I think it will be a pretty look in our master bedroom.
I've owned these gorgeous Pioneer Woman dinner plates for a few years and am still completely smitten with them. I used them for display in our Wisconsin house, but they will be our every day dishes in Kentucky.
I hope you enjoyed this glimpse into my whole house color scheme plan. Having a more neutral scheme will allow me to plug in different colors throughout the seasons. I know my beloved burgandys/reds will work their way in here and there.
I hope to have some pictures of the exterior of our new house to share with you very soon. I think it will surprise you!
