When building a new house, you have many decisions to make. Decisions like what style the home will be to the color of the window frames and everything in between. Your builder wants to know “yesterday” what hardware, flooring, lighting, paint colors, and (literally) which kitchen sink you want. Because there are so many choices out there, making a decision can be daunting.

You’re busy with career and family and now you’ve added
construction to your to-do list! Don’t get me wrong, it’s also exciting but you’re
starting to feel the pressure of making sure it all goes together. You know
your style and now you need to choose the details.

You definitely want to get it right so you don’t have to do it again. Getting help by investing in interior design services makes so much sense. Your designer can help you with advice and even take much of the decision making off your plate by asking you the right questions about your likes, dislikes, lifestyle, and more.

The architecture of your home will decide much of the design style. You don’t have to stick to one style, though. You can mix design styles. What you need to know is which elements of each style are similar and will help create balance and harmony in your design.

If you’re stuck on what colors you want in your home, here are five color palette inspirations based on the Sherwin Williams Colormix Forecast for 2020.



The first home color palette is a mix of East and West. Soft, muted neutrals in tones of blush, misty green, silvery gray, and celestial blue are all represented here. This palette has both cool and warm tones that will create a soothing and ethereal feeling in your home. It’s a simple palette with understated elegance inspired by minimalism, serenity, and a sense of sanctuary.

The second home color palette is a fusion of transitional style with a boho vibe. Colors and themes that seem like they wouldn’t go together harmonize and lend a more meditative feeling than you might expect. Natural earth tones, pinky corals, and even foggy grays go together in a comforting and introspective way. The inspiration for this palette was Bauhaus and Bohemian styles.
