My Coastal Craftsman Color Palette


As most of you know by now a few months ago my husband and I found our PERFECT house in our PERFECT neighborhood! We were determined to get this house despite having made peace with the fact we probably weren't going to move for a few more years. This house changed everything! It is literally like this house was made exactly for my family.  That being said it was a very emotional two months being under contract with some ups and downs and issues BUT finally last Friday we got the keys! 

We went there that night with dinner and champagne and hung out with the neighbors and let the girls run wild and it was basically pure bliss! I still can't believe this dream of a house is ours.  
The only good news of sitting in limbo for so long was that I got everything planned so that this week we could begin working on the things we need done.  
 
This post in particular is about the color palette of the house.  I'll be sharing lots of posts all dedicated to specific topics!

Our current home is just under 1300 sq feet and my new one is 2600! I could just die! I have so much storage and so much room, I literally just stare at my kitchen..:) But that is for another post. Back to the paint.
The home is almost brand new so the exterior is in perfect condition and a beautiful color already so I just need to change the interior colors.  My husband wants this house to be a little more modern, I want to stick with traditional craftsman style and of course add in the coastal charm! I suppose we could call this project "My Coastal Craftsman with a modern twist".  Haha! Or whatever...lets just call it MY DREAM! :)  

It's no secret I'm a BEHR girl so all my paint has come from Home Depot! 

BEHR Blowing Kisses

BEHR Graycloth

BEHR Broadway

BEHR Sweet Bianca

Now where are all these colors going?! Stay tuned this week and see!! Also, the two patterned pics from the collage above are actually removable wallpapers that I am using as well!! They can be purchased from WallPops!

Neutrals by BEHR Paint

I've been working on a project for the past two weeks and what always seems to be the most challenging part is choosing paint colors.  I have been wanting to find a nice neutral that isn't too "Gray" and isn't too "Beige" but not too white either. I personally like the look of white walls in pictures but in reality I'm not a huge fan.  Also, I like to see a contrast between painted walls and white trim.  Each time I look over on Pinterest for inspiration I find lots of suggestions for other paint brands..but I'm a BEHR girl :)  We spend so much time at Home Depot it just makes more sense for us.  That being said I decided to share with all of you my suggestions for finding the perfect "light Greige" by BEHR Paints!  


To start off with here are three options that are lighter/cooler but will still show a nice contrast next to white.

1. Drizzle


2. Sterling

3. Halation

These three options are also a "light greige" but a tad smidge more …

My first attempt at "Meal Planning".....

Okay friends ...well the vote was basically unanimous..97% of you voted "YES" to an easy low carb based meal prepping plan for the week.  So here we are! I say "low carb based" because there are a few carbs as well as some berries.  However the intake is still very low and definitely in an approved amount for any low carb diet.  
A few things to mention... I did not have the containers and like I mentioned in my stories Monday morning I did not have time to head to Target, Walmart or wait for Amazon delivery so I purchased mine at Publix the same day I shopped.  They were very inexpensive anyways so it worked out fine.  I got two sizes of containers (entree and soup/salad) and I also ended up using some of my existing tupperware. 
The four entrees that I made for the week (I can rotate them for lunches and dinners) do not contain any chicken.  This is because I personally don't like the taste of reheated chicken.  If you do then definitely substitute out some of t…
