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 farmhouse living room.

Before we started painting our downstairs family room, E found a rug. We both liked it and I pinned it for later. Now I am a firm believer in having a mood board for every room I’m decorating, but in this case, I hadn’t done one yet.
We painted our family room a blue-gray, which we absolutely love. When it came time to purchase the rug, we both said, “There is no way!” The rug he originally chose was a red, black, and dark gray modern, contemporary design. With our rock/stone fireplace and the stone backsplash in our kitchen, there was no way that rug would work. It was two completely different styles! We ended up going with a medium gray shag rug. See why I always say create a mood board first?

Using This Color Palette For a Farmhouse Living Room
With this color palette, I would use either the off-white or the light blue-gray for the walls. If you use the white, it will make your room look bigger and also make it easier to change out decor if and when you decide you want to change your decor. The light blue-grey is a color that is neutral enough so you could change the decor without too much of a hassle if and when you decide to make changes.
For the couch, depending on which wall color you chose, I would find either a couch in the light pink or navy blue color and add accents and splashes of the other colors in the palette throughout the room.
Other ways you can bring the colors from the palette are with,
- Candle holders
- End tables
- Coffee tables
- Chaise lounge chairs
- Wall art
Remember that when it comes to home decor, there are others ways to bring in colors from your palette other than the obvious choices of the wall color and furniture!
Using This Color Palette For Your Website
This color palette brings to mind a Spa or someone in the wellness industry. I would remove the navy from this palette and use the other 4 colors.
I would use the off-white as the background color and the dusty rose for the headings on the website.
An amazing logo could be made with these colors too! There are so many ways to incorporate this palette into a website where you want your readers to feel calm, relaxed, and peaceful.
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!
