Monday Morning Color Watch #2

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 want to share with you this farmhouse kitchen color palette!

This color palette for home and websites was inspired by my love for a farmhouse kitchens. I am a HUGE fan of the TV show Fixer Upper with Chip and Joanna Gaines.  I just love their farmhouse style! 

Please note: Colors may appear different due to your monitor or mobile device color settings.

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.

    What a great post, we actually have a yellow accent wall in our kitchen behind the dining room table. It’s the perfect way to feel sunshine even on a cloudy day 😉

  • Jenn Goggin 05/29/2017, 2:26 PM

    I love the farmhouse look too and these colors but unfortunately all my walls are white and boring! I may have to test a yellow out one day!

    • Lynn 05/30/2017, 7:48 AM

      Oh yes I think yellow is a great color to start with!

  • Melissa Jellie 05/29/2017, 2:32 PM

    I love the colors! A bright accent is always great to me!

    • Lynn 05/30/2017, 7:43 AM

      Me too Melissa!

  • Karla 05/29/2017, 6:01 PM

    I love how you describe the colors. I can envision a kitchen or blog with your descriptions!


    • Lynn 05/30/2017, 7:38 AM

      Thanks so much Karla!

  • Gillian 05/29/2017, 9:14 PM

    I love yellow walls. All my common areas are yellow. It’s like having the sunshine on the walls all the time.

    • Lynn 05/30/2017, 7:24 AM

      Gilliam that sounds wonderful. I love that!

  • Perla Jacobs 05/30/2017, 6:53 AM

    That is a good combination of colors for a kitchen, the yellow touch helps to raise the mood in the morning while making a good coffee. My favorite colors are pink, apple-green and lilas, but I don’t use all of them in the same room and not on the walls.

    • Lynn 05/30/2017, 7:24 AM

      Thanks Perla. Nothing like a great cup of coffee in the morning and sitting in the kitchen with brigjt, happy colors. I like apple-green too!

  • Stephanie 05/30/2017, 11:21 AM

    I think I’d replace the yellow with a more coral pink type color, but only because I personally don’t love yellow. However, I think you could easily work the yellow in through fun accessories.

  • Sabrina 05/30/2017, 11:27 AM

    I agree that yellow is an excellent colour for kitchens! Something about it’s warmth, and it brightens thing sup. I think this palette is great for a chic modern kitchen, like I can picture it being used at a office kitchen at a start up or something haha. I don’t know maybe that’s just me!

  • Kamila 05/30/2017, 11:35 AM

    Yellow is a key, right? When used right it can add so much modern class to a space.

  • Larissa 05/30/2017, 12:20 PM

    I also adore Fixer Upper on HGTV! They are seriously the cutest couple, and their finished product always amazes me. I love the color scheme you’ve chosen, except I’d probably change the dark gray to a lighter shade. I’ll have to keep this in mind for when we redo our kitchen! A splash of color would be so much fun!

    • Lynn 06/01/2017, 4:40 PM

      Yes, Larissa that show is almost all I watch. Your changes sound great!

  • Jenn 05/30/2017, 4:55 PM

    I love fixer upper! And these colors make such a great combo!

    • Lynn 06/01/2017, 4:40 PM

      Thanks, Jenn!

  • Amy Blake 05/30/2017, 8:35 PM

    Love the colour palette!

    • Lynn 06/01/2017, 4:39 PM

      Thanks, Amy!

  • Maheshwari Solapurkar 05/30/2017, 9:04 PM

    Love Chip and Jo!! I am a fan of farmhouse kitchens but I prefer lighter colors like teal. That, along with white walls and subway tile backsplash make my small kitchen look soooo much bigger and brighter!

    • Lynn 06/01/2017, 4:39 PM

      Your kitchen sounds wonderful, Maheshwari!

  • Sara 06/02/2017, 1:41 PM

    This is a fun color palette! I used to just pick one color at a time that I wanted to add to a room, but I’m learning that I need to plan ahead of time and create a palette that I want before starting to design my room. Thanks for sharing this! #HomeMattersParty

    • Lynn 06/02/2017, 4:25 PM

      Thanks, Sara. It does help to choose your palette before.

  • Nicole 06/04/2017, 9:40 PM

    I like the bright and cheerful yellow. I think it would be perfect for the kitchen to add pops of color. #HomeMattersParty

  • Melissa 06/04/2017, 11:58 PM

    The power of paint! Our last kitchen was yellow and it was the cheeriest spot in the house. I love the idea of paint palettes to keep every room on the same page! #HomeMattersParty
