Colorhouse Transforms your House into a Home.
Meet Sarah. Sarah is a family law attorney, avid hiker, and self-proclaimed bookworm. When Sarah bought her NE Portland cottage last summer, she wanted to transform the intensely-painted house into a peaceful oasis.
With rooms painted every color of the rainbow- bright yellows, green, and blues- Sarah enlisted the help of Colorhouse Color Nerds to help her with the zen-like transformation. Colors from left to right: FLINT .01, SEED .04, WOOL .02, Blossom from the Arhaus Collection.
Sarah wanted to maintain the traditional feel of the home, but punch it up with more modern, colorful elements. By choosing cool and contemporary FLINT .01 for the walls, Sarah was halfway to achieving her design goals. This all-over hue sits back and lets her furniture, rugs, and textiles come forward.
The beautiful, original trim work was in pristine condition, and bright white IMAGINE .01 was the chosen hue on this detail.
A view from the dining room into the living room reveals a soft, relaxing, open space- a far cry from the bright colors that were originally in the space! This vibe is just what Sarah was looking for in her new home.
Bringing the light grey FLINT .01 into the kitchen created a sense of flow from the dining room. Sarah painted the top of her dining room table sage SEED .04 to match the pantry. This color acts as a bookend from dining to kitchen.
Sarah’s kitchen is light and bright- a dreamy spot to perfect any recipe. White IMAGINE .01 cabinets and glistening subway tile create a blank canvas for culinary masterpieces. Sarah decided to keep the airy grey FLINT .01 on the walls, keeping the space open and expansive.
The cute and quaint pantry off the kitchen was just begging for color! Vintage, muted green SEED .04 was the perfect choice. This green is designed with grey undertones, creating harmony when paired with black and white. It rides the line between a traditional sage and a contemporary Scandinavian hue.
Sarah wanted a BOHO vibe in her guest bedroom to pair with her Grandma’s vintage bedroom set. Warm white AIR .03 on the walls stands apart just enough from the bedroom set, but keeps the room monochromatic. Casual textures and natural objects complete the look.
Sarah wanted an updated and sophisticated version of the pink hue she had in her room as little girl for her office. She chose Blossom form the Arhaus collection. This color has just enough grey to act as a neutral, and just enough brightness to feel lighthearted and feminine.
Sarah wanted the focal point of her master bedroom to be the hand-crafted, dark walnut bed frame from The Joinery. With help from Colorhouse Color Nerds, she landed on soft and sky-like WOOL .02 for the walls. This color is a whisper of grey and blue- perfect for sleeping spaces.
Sweet dreams are on the horizon in this restful bedroom, painted with dreamy blue/grey WOOL .02. A sophisticated palette of pastels comes together in the textiles, whitewashed nightstands, and rose gold lamps.
Go dark in small spaces! Rich charcoal METAL .05 shines when paired with bright white IMAGINE .01 on the trim in Sarah’s bath. Instead of making a room feel small, dark colors on walls can add drama, contrast, and a big dose of coziness to interiors. GO BOLD!
