House Decor - Inspiration Boards

Now that we've lived in the house almost a year, the decor has finally started taking shape. The house color palette has remained with shades of gray with pops of turquoise, green and purple and we've acquired some more furniture. 

Bedroom colors. Our bedroom is ALMOST that teal color... just a little more green in it.
Inspiration for house color palatte

Family Room
  • Painted the room in Behr's Dark Pewter a dark gray color with undertones of dark blue and purple
  • We've added a light gray sofa and chair.
  • To bring in a little more color into the space, we'll be covering the sofa with colorful pillows 
  • Need to decide on window coverings. Currently undecided between wide strips or a more graphic pattern.
  • We bought a big 60 inch TV that is currently sitting on our old coffee table. We plan to buy a dresser and paint it a pretty mint or turquoise color.

The second room is the Dining Room...
Dining Room
  • Painted the room in Behr's Lap Pool Blue a medium shade of robin's egg blue.
  • We plan to add board and batten to bottom half of wall
  • Spice things up with some fun Ikea Janette curtains
  • Add Furniture: We refinished a large dark wood table and bought 4 metal dining chairs.
  • Switch out our current lighting for something fun (undecided on this) but we like the idea of many hanging bulbs.
  • Dress up main wall with some chunky mirror frames

Master Bedroom
  • The master bedroom was painted in Behr's Lap Pool Blue
  • We are planning on switching our gray bedspread for some crisp white bedding.
  • Ikea Hacked some Rast dressers with brown stain and white paint to use as nightstands.
  • Add some bright pillows to bring color into the room
  • DIY the gray metal column lamps with white lampshades.
  • Frame large wedding picture for above bed
