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! As I’m sure you know, colors are very important when it comes to your home and DIY home decor projects; they can make or break a room! Colors are equally important for your branding and website. Today I’m sharing colors for a sports lover’s bathroom inspired by the 4th of July and my husband’s bathroom.

Being that he is from Washington, DC, my husband is a HUGE Washington fan. With the exception of the Redskins (football team), all of the Washington teams have the colors of red, white and blue; the Capitals (hockey), the Wizards (basketball), and the Nationals (baseball).
When we bought our house, the deal was that the shed, the garage, and the 3rd floor were E’s to do and decorate as he pleased, within reason of course. Well, on the 3rd floor, because of his love of these teams, he painted the guest bathroom on the 3rd floor…yep, you guessed it; red, white, and blue!
I wasn’t too excited, but what was I going to do? A deal is a deal and the painting of the bathroom with these colors looks good!

Colors for a Sports Lover’s Bathroom
Let me share with you what E did with this bathroom. He painted the room blue. He painted a wide, red stripe across the top of the walls and the sink and vanity in the room are white.
He even went so far as to find a bathmat that says Man Cave in red, white, and blue, and has the Washington Capitals on it!
He’s still working on that bathroom. I’ll share the room reveal when it’s ready!

Using this color palette for your website
The thing I love about this color palette is its simplicity. To use this color palette for a website, I would have the background white and the red and blue as the accent colors. The blue as the headings, the red as the background for the footer and menu items.
How would you use these colors for your website? Which colors would you keep? Which would you change? I’d love to hear your thoughts and ideas in the comments below!
