Hey hey all! The sun is shining, my garbage disposal is fixed – it is a very good day! It’s still not warm – but better. I have hope. :)

So I totally got the idea for this post from a reader – Laurie commented on this recent pic of mine on Instagram:

farm fresh eggs

It’s a shot of some eggs from a local farm – it’s probably silly but I think they are SO pretty. When Laurie mentioned how they would make a great paint strip an idea was born – why not make one?

So I pulled out my Sherwin Williams paint deck and looked online to find colors that were in this palette. They’re not exact, but I tried to find tones that played nicely together.

And there you go: a farm fresh egg inspired color scheme:

I love the names too – wouldn’t that be a fun job? ;)

Some of the blueish ones leaned more aqua, the lighter ones were a really pale blue. The brown eggs had a bit of a pink tone to them, so I tried to go with taupes that are more warm and less pink. (You know how I dislike pink walls.)

Fun right? I particularly love the Rhinestone and Moroccan brown together. The Snow drop and Colony buff are so pretty too. OH and Brooklet and Outer banks – LOVE.

These light, pretty colors have me completely rethinking the colors for the powder room. I was going to go with a deeper color but there’s certainly something to be said for a calming combo. I am in a constant struggle between painting rooms deep and dramatic or light and bright – I’m drawn to both!

So there you go – a color palette for your home inspired by nature. It was fun and I will do this again in the future for sure. Now I just need to go find more inspiration. ;)

Have you ever pulled a room color from an unexpected source?

**SW has a tool that does this for you that I told you about here that’s fun too. And this is not a sponsored post of any kind, I just love paint. :)
