One Room - Four Different Colour Schemes

Real Simple | Photography by Gentl & Hyers | Paint Palettes by Eve Ashcraft | Styling by Jeffrey W.Miller
For the August edition of Real Simple, Eve Ashcraft, author of forthcoming book The Right Colour, pulled together four different colour schemes for the same room. The beautifully styled story illustrates how you can work a palette of multiple hues into one room to great effect. I've named the schemes: Colours of the Sky, after the first room's gentle blue and grey hues; Sun-soaked Yellow, for the second room that shows how one step up from a standard beige can make an invigorating difference; The Colours of Nature, a name inspired by the moss green walls and rich green trim of scheme three; and, lastly, Powerful Passion, where a variety of deep, dark red tones are combined with dramatic results. The Colours of Nature takes my vote - there's a secret garden feel about the palette that makes the room feel romantic and calming. Which scheme has you reaching for the paint brushes?


  1. Looking through it, I first thought " Sky" , but you are right, the green wins, hands down!
    Take care

  2. The first and the last! Beautiful! The green is wonderful too, just the ceiling leaves me cold!
    And I am no fan of yellow....

  3. The yellow is warm, happy and by far my best (of course!)

  4. The first one, Colours of the Sky makes me happy and nostalgic.

  5. Love this Will! I'm with you "the colours of nature" is gorgeous xx

  6. I love all of them, but I especially liked the "colours of nature".


  7. Oh my... All are so beautiful! Also in love with all props! Hmmm... After a min or two of thinking about my favorite I choose the shades of the sky palette. it's so nostalgic & calming! Love it <3 xo

  8. They are a ll really lovely but I am totally in love with the green & pink ... I wouldn't do it the same as they have but some form of that combo. :)

  9. I love the grey palette! I am such a sucker for grey!

  10. Love seeing one room in multiple colors. I'm sure you won't be surprised when I say I love the all white neutral room - its just calm and serene.

  11. Although I would go for the last one every time, with its rich, warm tones, everything that we are delivering at the moment, or that people are ordering is a shade of blue or turquoise!
