There are no more vibrant, saturated colors than the ones created in nature. With the amazing paint technology today, you can replicate the color of an old growth oak tree’s moss in your backyard. You can bring in the vibrance of those daffodils you planted in the spring. You can well, pretty much paint your home in any of the colors you see everyday. This brought us to thinking, what are our favorite natural color palettes?
Fresh Color Palettes- Bringing the Outdoors In
1.Spring is in the Air. This gorgeous, feminine palette is so calming and rich. It would work beautifully in a sunroom overlooking a garden, a little girl’s bedroom, or even a dining or living room. When you put soft color palettes into your space, you create harmony that reduces stress from the every day. And, this color palette is Pantone’s pick for 2016! Authentic Home’s Playful Palette has the perfect selection to achieve this look!
2. Organic Bliss. Keeping a clean, bright and nature-inspired palette will truly give your space a freshness like no other palette. This beautiful neutral palette works beautifully in large, airy spaces as it allows the architecture to stand out. Typically seen in the Northwest, a paint palette like this works best in cloudier climates as its warmth balances out the wet dreary weather. You may find Authentic Home's Fresh Palette perfect if you’re going for this look!
3. Southbeach Charm. This bold, bright, and cheery palette is perfect for smaller spaces, preferably in brighter, warmer climates. These cheerful citrus tones stand out in sunlight while blending in with organic colors found in outdoor surroundings. We love this palette for a powder room or a dining nook-reminiscent of sunny spring mornings.
4. Zen Garden. The perfect combination of cool tones meet warm. Soft and airy, this palette brings forth a sense of calmness into your space. The gorgeous lavender and green tones would work beautifully as an accent color- an arm chair or throw pillows would really “pop” against the remaining colors in the palette. The more neutral colors are perfect for wall paint and larger accessories such as furniture. See Authentic Home’s Elegant Palette if this is the look you desire.
5. Bright and Cheery. So rich and delightful, this palette is perfect for someone looking to bring a little cheer into their home. These tertiary colors are close friends on the color wheel and can be applied to any space, working beautifully in harmony. If you are seeking a bright, saturated palette like this one, we recommend allowing the brightest colors to “pop” as accessories, and setting the more neutral colors to stand as a backdrop. If you like bright and cheery, you will love Authentic Home’s Playful Palette.
