COLOUR INSPIRATION: Behr Marquee collection & $500 Home Depot Giveaway

This time of year always brings about those feelings to change things up a bit, especially around the house. Are you with me? I know you’ve heard it before but a coat of paint really has the power to completely change a look – whether it’s a room, just a wall, a whole house or a piece of furniture. Like fashion, the colours you choose to surround yourself with in your space is a reflection of your personal style. That’s why it’s taken you 5 years to pick just the perfect shade of blue and you’re totally embarrassed of you builders white walls. Shame on you. Would you go out dressed in white sweat pants? Ok, maybe some people would but you’re better than that. It’s time to shake off the indecision and express yourself. Behr’s new line up of Marquee colours available at The Home Depot are just what you need.  If you’ve used Behr before you know how awesome the coverage is with their primer & paint combo. You can usually get away with one coat. Lazy people (me) rejoice.

Ok, so this paint sample book is packed full of beautiful colours. Like seriously, so many gorgeous colours. The collection is divided into 6 lifestyle categories; Dynasty, Fundamentals, Lights, Odyssey, Opulence and Rejuvenation. So figure out what kinda vibe you’re looking for to help you choose.  It was almost impossible for me to choose my favourites but I did because it’s all about making decisions right? So I really couldn’t narrow it down to three individual colours but I kept it in the family. Here’s colour inspiration I found based on my favourite colour family picks from the new Behr Marquee collection. Looks like I’m feeling the blue/greys, greyed jades, green and mustard caramel hues. (and also that I like birds, but that’s no secret)

    Hey Melissa – I love your collections of images. I’m all about shades of green. It looks AMAZING with white, and it’s all so natural. I also love plants, so natural greenery is an accent throughout my white home. The pinning has started…

    What a fun contest, Melissa! I love the colours you chose! I’m definitely choosing shades of grey and blue for our upcoming house project.

    Made a little board to share! Thanks for the opportunity, lady! Our new house would LOVE a little bit of help towards its makeover.
