Whole House Paint Scheme Idea: Soothing & Sophisticated

I’ve been mulling over paint colors for two weeks. If we are able to complete the purchase of the house we are trying to buy, I will be doing a lot of painting! It’s pretty much a big white box right now. I have a good idea of where I want to go with colors, but there are so many beautiful colors out there, it’s going to be so hard to choose! Do you have trouble picking paint colors too?
Today I put together a whole-house paint scheme I like to see how all the colors would look together. Kind of a paint color test drive. I wanted to try it out “virtually” and see how the colors flowed together. So I chose this adorable little house and floor plan, so I could see how the colors looked next to each other.
To see more examples of the paint colors, head over to my blog:

    You asked if we also had trouble with paint colors, I love color. I've spent to long playing it safe with neutral colors,I wasn't happy. This is our second home and this one has starting to get color. I want to walk in and feel like this is me. I really want to go crazy on first floor but am sticking with 3 colors of nature all are equally favorites of mine. So far I have organic green in "L" shaped living and dining room with white shaker style trim not mitered corners, just very simple and baton board in dining room. I had a great handy do it all man who started out with are you sure to putting it on his Facebook page for work and has since redone 3 rooms into this shade of green. My other 2 colors are blue and brown. Yes I love brown it makes for a cozy warm room so staircase will be blue. Not sky blue but a dusty navy with no violet tint. I will also have blue in the hallway leading into kitchen then as you turn left is the family room that will be brown. It will pick up all the beautiful hickory cabinets and counter top. Up stairs the hallway will be a continuation of the bright white ceiling over staircase. The bedrooms for now will stay as is since my adult children will move out and we have plans for the rooms. One will be brown because it will be a true office. So to answer your question nope. I am living my life now for me,it took a long time to do this but we finished paying old house off and was never happy and I never hung up not one picture with the exception of the one over the fireplace and it was to cover up the nail or screw there. How sad ,right? So we pay this mortgage why live that way?
