Welcome to Friday in our first monthly series of designing with photography. Today, I have taken our full palette and photography from Monday and Wednesday and have developed it into a portable color palette and inspiration book that I can take with me when I go out looking for inspiring items to add to my collections.
As a reminder: we started with my jonquil photography on Monday and pulled colors to start the beginning of a palette or inspiration for a color scheme. On Wednesday we added accessories and fun items and today I have added paint colors and notes to help you get started.
I generally start with paint colors or solid fabrics when I build color inspiration. My favorite paints are Benjamin Moore for the quality, durability and color selection. If you are using paint I recommend an eggshell finish in most spaces except bathrooms and kitchens. An eggshell finish provides a nice soft sheen to your walls and also is easily wiped clean from scuff marks and kids “art projects”. The colors used as a base for this palette are:
OC-96 Gentle Cream
AF-390 Altiplano Glacier
2146-40 Pale Avacado
2147-30 Jalepeno Pepper
From here you can add blues, yellows, pinks to round out your palette as I have shown in the picture.
A few additional notes:

Thanks for joining me this week and I look forward to sharing another colorful palette for you in February.
