Color Palette Inspiration: November

Posted by

I love this November palette -- a combination of both lighter and darker shades of greens and blues (Hickory MSL202, Rainwater MSL120, Hosta MSL128, Holly Leaf MSL139 and Francesca MSL279).

These colors are not only beautiful, but easy to use whether you are painting an entire room, want the perfect shade for a piece of furniture, or using one on an accent wall or ceiling.

Flipping through some inspirational books and Martha Stewart Living issues, I've found some ideas that would work beautifully in this palette.
