Creating a cohesive home takes time and thought, and for me the most frustrating piece of the puzzle has been settling on a color scheme. I know my basics as they are no brainers in my world…whites, grays, black, and dark wood = my heaven. The headaches came in when I tried to finalize my accent colors.
I know this might sound ridiculous; accent colors are causing me headaches? I need a vacation or a maybe a valium- but it’s true. Want to know my hardest wedding decisions? What color towels to register for. No lie, I’m crazy. So picking a solid color scheme to define our home was a big deal and took some time.

As much as I love the soft neutral palettes to accompany my basics, I’m a bit too loud for such a quiet home. The decision happened more organically then I anticipated. After looking around the house for my favorite things and a few antique store purchases over the summer, it became evident that my accent colors would be shades of emerald green and royal blue.

Now that I have my color scheme finalized: whites, grays, black, dark wood tones and pops of emerald green and royal Blue...off to my beloved Pinterest for some more inspiration:
