Coordinate Decor Colors Between Rooms

Brought to you by Lowe's Creative Ideas

Pick a color palette that flows from room to room using HGTV Home™ by Sherwin-Williams paint.

Wall colors that coordinate between rooms.
Entry with a painted dresser.

Choose the Hues

Begin selecting a palette by taking cues from existing decor or furniture -- our palette was inspired by a painting full of soft colors. Four muted shades of blue, green, gray and off-white work equally well in the entry and living room. Then we sparingly added a striking blue accent color -- as in the entry on this upcycled dresser. Accessories like an allen + roth™ framed mirror (#494235), a bronze table lamp (#416383, model 32163ORB), a coral rug (#DHU558A, atgstores.com), and a painted terra-cotta pot and saucer (#94451, #94457) complement the look.

Coordinated palettes between entry and living room.

Use the Hues

One advantage of a neutral-dominated palette -- like this one from the HGTV Home™ by Sherwin-Williams Coastal Cool collection -- is that it’s easy to use in different ways throughout your home. We applied a creamy putty shade (Eider White, #SW 7014) to the upper entry wall and ceiling, but we painted the living room walls pale green (Hearts of Palm, #SW 6415). Use colors in unconventional ways. We painted the living room ceiling in watery blue (Watery, #SW 6478) and the trim in a frothy gray-beige (Accessible Beige, #SW 7036) rather than the whites usually selected for these surfaces.

Attention-Getting Accents

Use an accent color, like the more vibrant Rapture Blue (#SW 6773) in our palette, to draw attention to a built-in bookcase or another desired focal point.

Winning Combination

The HGTV Home ™ by Sherwin-Williams Coastal Cool collection is one of several designer-inspired palettes. Five of the 20 colors in this collection were used here.

Accessories coordinated with wall colors.

Think Beyond Paint

Use decor to enhance or refine a room’s palette. The allen + roth™ curtains (#19673), table lamps (#416383, model #32107IRD), and a patterned rug (#DHU560B, atgstores.com) coordinate with our neutral colors. We chose pillows (#PIL502A, atgstores.com) featuring bursts of blue that mimic our accent-color paint. Fruit, flowers, and other objects provide more ways to fine-tune your color scheme with pops of color and restful whites.
