Let's bring it on back around to the point of *this* post. I know you're waiting with baited breath (btw, what does that even mean?! Sounds disgusting.). So without further ado, I give you our perfect pallete.
We are really drawn to monochromatic color schemes with bright pops of color. As proof, please witness our bedroom:
The only reason we didn't go with the black/white/yellow palette for our wedding was because it's everywhere right now (for good reason, I might add - it's fabulous!), and I wanted something a bit more unique. I adore me some gray/hot pink and gray/purple combos, but I knew Mr. NM wouldn't go for those hues. I also love black/gray/red together, but coming from a Georgia Tech family, there's *no way* I would ever even hint that there's one iota of Georgia Bulldog in me, so that was out. Looking around the house Mr. NM and I decorated together, we realized that we always gravitate towards cool colors, particularly the colors of the sea. We both can't get enough of the ocean, so our initial thought (oh, about 2.5 years ago) was to use green as the accent color. I was down with that at first, but lime green really is Mr. NM's favoritest color ever, and eventually I realized it felt like I wasn't reflected enough in the color scheme. So then we turned to cobalt blue, and we never looked back. It's fresh, it's bright, it's different, and it will look great with my eyes. Oh, I kid! no i don't. I kid! At long last, a perfect palette we can stick with!
How many color schemes did you go through before you finally stuck with one?
