How To Create A Cohesive Color Pallet In Your Space

Creating a color pallet that feels both cohesive and unique can be difficult for some, but there is an easy way to design your color style using one simple guide– a favorite pattern you love!

When decorating your room, start with a pattern made up of 3-5 colors. These colors will make up your color pallet for the rest of your room. The easiest way to bring pattern into your space is by selecting a throw pillow you adore.

Once you’ve found the perfect patterned pillow, lay out the colors within the design to finalize your pallet.

As a visual reference, we have selected the Vista Pillow, by bunglo, styled by Hakuna Haus.

Color Pallet From Pattern

Now you have the pallet, so what’s next?

The hard part is over!! Since your colors are now locked in, you can simply select furniture and decor pieces in those colors. Don’t worry, the colors do not have to be exact! As long as you stick to similar tones, your pallet will feel cohesive throughout. A little variation in tone can bring a new dimension to your space.

Insider Hint…

Do you want the exact colors in your pillow as paint for your walls/murals? You can bring your physical pillow to the store to get an exact color match! You can also do this to help choose while shopping different furniture & decor options.

Pattern Color Guide

In the image above, you can see a layout of the color guide derived from the pillow pattern.

🌿Green– The plant decor features a natural tone of green, also found in the pillow.

🌼Yellow–The yellow/mustard tone is represented in the drum coffee tables.

🌊Blue– The navy/teal tones are creatively utilized in the wall mural.

🐚Gray– To hold all of these bold tones together, the sofa is a neutral gray.

Along with the Vista Pillow, the rug features navy, yellow and gray acting as another great decor piece to help tie everything together.

When looking at all of these pieces separately, you may feel confused or lost, but with the throw pillow tying them together the space feels cohesive! How easy is that? Next time you are looking to curate a space with a colorful pallet, turn to patterns–they act as a pre-made color guide, specially made for you!

Insider Hint…

Bunglo offers a styling service if you get stuck with your pattern, and also has over 500 hand painted patterns to choose from. Plus, you can shop by color on their home page to make your color selections extra easy!

Bunglo Organic Cotton Face Masks

Masks–this is is our new normal. And as we navigate these uncertain times, it is important to remember why these masks are a new part of our society.

Protection.

If protection is the main goal, then why are so many of these masks made from synthetic materials sprayed with chemicals? Why are we not protecting our skin? Why are we putting in effort to protect others, yet paying no attention to the direct harm we are causing our own bodies?

It’s time to start connecting the dots – we can protect others as well as ourselves! Choose a mask made from organic materials. Fabrics that will not cause harm to your skin, such as organic cotton. We are proud of our nation for coming together and taking the necessary precautions to aid in the recovery of our world, which makes this message even more important to share.

Fabrics You’ll Love For Fall Weather

As the weather starts to change, it’s a good idea to switch out your summer textiles for more hearty, warm fabrics. Wool and organic cotton bases for autumn will refresh your design and create a cozy winter bunker in your space!

The wool family is large and a cold weather staple. Cashmere, merino, mohair and flannel are all a part of the wool family, which makes them incredible insulators to keep the heat in. Wool is the most hearty of winter fabrics, perfect for living room throws or even a full bedding set for cold climates.

Organic Cotton is a versatile textile, making it a great option for any season. Soft and breathable, yet still able to keep the heat in, this fabric can be used for bedding as well as upholstering chairs, couches etc. Pick colors that bring your space into a dreamy, autumn landscape.

Linen is another trans-seasonal fabric. Not everyone needs a heavy wool blanket for fall, so if you find yourself in more moderate weather, linen will be your best option. Flax linen is a natural, soft fabric. You can add warmth by simply adding extra layers, yet the properties of linen ensure that you will still be kept cool. If you still desire a fall aesthetic, simply purchase bedding, upholstering fabric or blankets in colors such as rust, terracotta, clay and burgundy.
