What Color Combination Shall I use???

Now that I have my "Someday"floor plan for my, “Someday Family-room re-do, it is time to think about color.
Choosing colors for me is easy because I have always liked the same colors and used them throughout my home. Green, white, soft yellow, blue,watermelon pink and touches of black and white. With that being said I must look at the adjoining room, the kitchen, for a color cue.
Most of you have seen my kitchen, but for those of you who have not here is the colors I will be working with......

In both of these pictures you can see I am working with a green and white. I also must consider the white oak floors in a natural finish, which has golden undertones.
The other thing I need to consider is I love a light filled room with medium value colors and accents in pops of white or black.
Let me show you some pictures of rooms that I love the color combinations......
cobalt blue

Johnathan Adler
black and white accents
I think you can tell by all of the above images I am going for a cobalt blue and white with green and touches of black and white as my main color scheme.

So what about the walls? What color will they be, will they have any architecture applied to them? That question will be answered in my next post!!

Collecting images for color combinations that you love.

Beautiful color combinations, Kathysue. Someone had a blog on "White - trendy or timeless", and I like the way you have lots of white, but lots of blue, green, and black to ground it and give it life. Love your colors. Linda

Love the inspiration photos. Looks like those rooms are white with the colors added. Good luck making a choice.

Image no 11 (had to say that first before I forgot!!!) I love the almost putty shade on the wall and it would look amazing with the green of your cupboards and the stripe wallpaper you used.
Look forward to seeing what you choose!

Georgous inspiration images (and love the re-glimpse into your kitchen and eating area....lovely). Cannot wait to see what you come up with. I love blue and have it in both my current kitchen and adjoining family room.

I love all your inspiration photos, they have "Kathysue" written all over them!
It's so wonderful to follow along with your thought process!
Hope you are having a lovely week.
Miss you

I love the mostly white look! It's casual but sophisticated and elegant at the same time! And I love architecture on walls, my hubby and I are planning 2 walls of grid paneling in our dining room, similar to what is on the wall in your first photo!!

These look just like rooms I would imagine you in. Very beautiful, crisp, clean-lined and classic....just like you! I think it's great when our styles match our personalities so well. I guess that explains my random sometimes chaotic style, huh!!
