I'm totally geeked about my laundry room makeover, and not just because of the awesome opportunity to redecorate a room in my house or because it's the biggest giveaway ever ($1000 Visa gift card and $200 to Sherwin-Williams). The reason I am so excited is that my custom Chip It! color palette has me so inspired!
In case you missed the previous post, I chose two inspiring images and then the Sherwin-Williams Chip It! button provided me with two amazing color palette options based on the colors within the images. Option #1 was based on an image of a pillow and #2 was based on a Pinterest outfit. I was trying to choose between these two for my laundry room makeover.
I can't believe I'm going to show this again, but here is what it looks like now:
I absolutely loved both color palettes, and it was really hard to choose. Thank you to everyone who weighed in. I decided to go with...
Option #2, based on the Pinterest outfit of my dreams.
Here is the beautiful color palette the Chip It! button provided:
Extra White, Tricorn Black, Interface Tan, Grounded and Storm Cloud.
I loved the pop of teal in option #1, but #2 tugged at my heartstrings. The #2 color palette reminded me of my favorite place: my Dad's boat. I kept going back and forth between the two color palettes until I came across this beautiful paisley fabric...
...and I immediately fell in love. It has almost every color in the Pinterest outfit Chip It! palette: Extra
White, Interface Tan, and Storm Cloud. I took it as a sign to go with my heart and choose option #2. I'll be using this fabric for a curtain to disguise the laundry tub and to hang on the window.
Another reason I chose #2 was because of the color of the upstairs hallway, where the laundry room is located. It's very similar to the color Grounded provided in the palette. This guaranteed option #2 would complement the colors I already have going on. Here is a shot of the laundry room door:
I'm so eager that I've already started shopping. Here is a little teaser of some of the things I'll be incorporating into the space. With the Chip It! palette as my guide, it's very easy to choose items for the room.
Everything I purchased was based on the color recommendations made by Sherwin-Williams: Extra White, Interface Tan, Grounded and Storm Cloud. The navy blue and white chevron rug was inspired by the Extra White color suggestion and the navy blue blazer in the outfit. The fun zebra fabric brings in a little bit of the Grounded.
The paisley fabric, as I mentioned before, combines three of the colors: Extra White, Interface Tan, and Storm Cloud.
Dark woven baskets mimic the Grounded color. These babies will be incorporated into my new built-in storage shelf.
I'm still making art selections, but so far I've been inspired to use a super-fun set of graphic prints in blue and white and a large-scale canvas giclee from Ballard Designs in brown (a.k.a. Grounded).
The drying rack shown here would be functional as well as bring in more Extra White.
For the wall color, I'll be going with Interface Tan or Storm Cloud. Still trying to decide, since they are both beautiful colors.
The next time you see this color palette, it will be in the final reveal of my new laundry room.
Ever since I was told about the Chip It! tool, I have been obsessed. I thought I was addicted to pinning, and now I'm addicted to chipping my pins. The Chip It! button is so easy to use with Pinterest. By selecting a pin board and clicking on your Chip It! button, you can chip any of the pins that inspire you. All of the color palette results I have received have been absolutely beautiful. This is a great tool for my own personal decorating projects as well as those I do for my clients.
