color inspiration

May 24, 2011

What do your walls say about you?

It’s the perfect time of year to get your home projects started (and finished!). If you’re yearning for a new color in your living room, kitchen, or bathroom, but haven’t found the right inspiration, look no further! Here are three fresh color schemes for your new space…

This bathroom starts with a pop of blue paint on the walls and is accented with white and grey marble. Black towels and deep turquoise act as accents.


This neutral color scheme is made fresh with pops of barn red, bright blue, and mustard yellow.


This Ruby bathroom features a black and white marble tile floor with a deep warm wood vanity and chrome fittings.

Which hauthaus color scheme do you take inspiration from? Stay tuned for more!

a splash of color

Chase the winter blues (and greys) away with some color and pattern! Which of these patterns/ colors do you like the best?

“There are painters who transform the sun into a yellow spot, but there are others who, thanks to their art and intelligence, transform a yellow spot into the sun.”  – Pablo Picasso

Color is a fantastic way to make a change on the interior and exterior of your house. When you work with hauthaus designers on a project, we  pull together a color plan for your project based on your design concept.

It is important to know what feel you are going for, if you prefer warm tones vs cool tones, what kinds of activities the room will be used for, if you want a calming space or energetic space, etc… It is also very important to take into consideration which type of light is coming into the space… northern and southern lights are very different and can play with how the colors look in the room.

color bathrooms

These bathrooms show two different schemes; One is a cool blue and white color scheme that feels very crisp and clean; while the other is warm red with dark wood that feels energetic and inviting.



dining room

This dining room has a very welcoming feel. The color on the wall is warm and earthy, which plays with the warm creamy tone on the ceiling. The dark wood tones add another layer to the palette.








Art is another way to bring in a splash or two of color. In this front entry, the paint colors and the floor tile is kept pretty neutral, while the orange and blue in the painting in the art niche speak for themselves.
