For your home: Farmhouse Kitchen Color Palette
With this farmhouse kitchen color palette, I always think of yellow for the kitchen-I’m not sure why. Maybe because it’s such a bright and cheerful color and it makes me think of laughter. The kitchen is usually the heart of the home, where everyone gathers, and there is lots of laughter. The white keeps things clean so white walls, white cabinets, white countertops. I can see the dark blue and dark gray as accent decor colors. If you could find a backsplash that incorporated the blue and yellow, that would be super cool and help even more with the farmhouse kitchen feel!

For your website: A Coach’s Website
If I were to use this color palette for a client’s blog, I would create a pattern (maybe a honeycomb) with the white and gray. The yellow would be my splashes of color throughout the site for a pick me up like custom social media icons. The dark gray would be a nice change from the usual black as the headline color.
I envision this color palette for a business coach. Why? Having a Coach is a very personal thing. The blue represents trust and warmth. They yellow still brings out that personality and feelings of closeness. I mean let’s face it; if you’ve had a Coach before, you know that becomes a pretty personal relationship even with a business Coach. With this color palette, you have a mix of cool and warm to balance the business and personal side of things.
