Coastal Chic Family Room with Green walls

Color Palette: Puffin Tones


My mother was completely and totally in love with Puffins.  They are pretty adorable, aren’t they?  When I found this color palette (from our delightful friends at I knew this was the palette inspiration for the week.  The challenge is going to be room inspiration photos which incorporate these tones…can it be done? hmmmm….let’s see what I can come up with for you!


Let’s start with the lovely shade of gray – this kitchen does it well!

The green hue is a mossy green and here is a good example of the color painted on walls:

The deep and dramatic Plum Brown color looks great when balanced with the white bedding and shutters.

The forever classic, White paint!  The paint in this room is  Sherwin Williams Extra White 7006.

And last, but certainly not least, how about some Outgoing Orange paint color?

So, let’s mix it up! Here is a room with greyish lavender walls and pops of gorgeous orange!

I personally prefer this room with the white walls and pops of color in the furnishings:

This living room is fun, modern yet cozy.  I could sit down and put my feet up for a while!

Mom had pretty great taste!  Though this palette isn’t for everyone, it does add a certain bit of fun with it’s bright orange.  

I’m progressing on our floor’s…started the whitewashing and it is quite what I was looking for.  I’m putting my thinking cap on and going to figure it out though!  Hope you’re doing well on your projects this week.
