Thoughts on color palette! Sign In/Join 
posted
I've chosen some colors I really love for the house. Pulled them from the fireplace (except the blue). I've already used the blue in a guest room. I want the house to flow easily between rooms and Nantucket Dune or Manchester Tan will be the main color throughout with accents in the other colors, or areas like the laundry room and powder room. All our furniture, etc. will work with these colors, so not worried about that.

I've posted some pics of the the main house - as you can see we have cherry finish on all cabinets and woodwork. I am debating painting the trim a creamy white to brighten everything up. I've seen pictures where there is a mix of white trim and natural wood and I like that look a lot.

Do you think I have too many colors going? Again, these would be accents, etc. also.

Here is another option for the palette, using the colors that are on the card with Nantucket Dune (varied shades of it). Obviously, I wouldn't use all the colors, but these are options.

Not sure about Rattan, but everything else looks great and, really, what do I know anyway?
I am not standing inside your house where things might look entirely different.
Enjoy!
