{inspire} winter color palettes

Fact: there are very few times of year that I shop more than at after Christmas sales. Every year I tell myself to not even bother looking, but then every year I happen to catch wind of one amazing sale and it's all down hill from there. From that vein, I thought it was time again** to pull together a couple of my current favorite color palettes, for both you and your home (!), to get through the rest of winter and into spring.

Palette #1
Neutrals, especially gray, with a pop of color are my work uniform. I love this shade of plum. I think the whole look translates to a room that is light, airy and doesn't take itself too seriously.

Palette #2
To me, this palette is a touch of 70s and a touch of modern. I love it. You all know that I LOVE yellow in rooms and I think the shades of brown really ground it.

**A word about color palettes: For each season I pull together a color palette that translates to both your room and your home. For previous posts see: fall color palettes, summer color palettes, and spring color palettes.

What is your favorite look of the two? What colors, for both rooms and clothes, are you loving right now?

Happy friday friends!


  1. Well I'm totally diggin' that second room. It looks so comfy/cozy. Love all the different textures.

  2. The plum and the yellow are such-gorgeous-colors! Great post.

  3. I love this series!

    The first color scheme is my favorite. Could be because I love grey with pops of color :)

  4. Love this series Jenn! Both palettes are gorgeous, but I am drawn to the gray & plum. Impressed that you added the pin it button to your posts too! It's on my list of things to do....


  5. That photo of the office nook is still a fave of mine!

  6. I love the first image how it's very neutral but with the pops of cranberry in the flowers and the pretty scarf. But I also really like the living room and all the texture of that room. Without a doubt, I almost always wear black or grey pants in the winter - they go with everything.

  7. That first room is beautiful, the lighting is breathtaking - could spend a day in there no problem!!

  8. I LOVE the first room.... I think it's because it is something I wouldn't do in my own house, but super admire!

  9. Usually I am not a purple gal, but I love that first room! Supa cute!
