I’m often asked about colors palettes for the home and for websites and so I decided to create a series of colors that I hope will inspire you to find colors for your home or blog! Colors are very important when it comes to your home and DIY home decor projects; they can make or break a room! This color palette for home and websites was inspired by the master bedroom in our home which we’re still working on.

- Right: Rose Pink (hexadecimal code: #da9f93)
Using this color palette for home
The decor word for our bathroom was an escape. I wanted the master bedroom and bathroom to be an escape when we come home. That meant color choices were going to be soft pastels and there would also be an influence of nature in our spa bathroom as well!
The colors are a soft gray, a rose pink, and a burgundy pink for a sharp contrast. I always like my contrast colors to be drastic. When looking for contrast, remember that you don’t have to just stick with contrasting colors; you can also use textures. I can’t believe it, but wallpaper has made its way back into the game and this is a great way to give that look of texture. You can also use rugs, towels, and other decorative pieces.

Using this color palette for blogs
Pastel colors aren’t bad for a website, but remember that pastels are very difficult to see. When choosing any colors for your website, always think mobile first! Websites are accessed using a mobile device more than a desktop. Remember when mobile devices were getting smaller and smaller? Well, things quickly change in the technology world and mobile devices are getting larger and larger. Why? Because not only do we use them to talk, but also to watch TV, movies, and give presentations.
If you chose to use this color scheme for your blog, the burgundy color should be the primary color with the rose pink and light gray as the accent colors. Can you imagine how hard it would be to read the text in the rose or gray color?
How would you use these colors in your home or your blog? I’d love to hear your thoughts and ideas in the comments below!
See ya later!
