Having a place to call your own is one of our ultimate dreams. Since we were kids, we’ve been taught that owning a home is one of the proofs of a successful life. While this is arguable, one thing’s for sure – picking the right color for your home is definitely one of the hardest decisions to make.

Certain questions concerning this decision are really hard to answer, like “Which color will make the house more lively?” “Will everyone in the house agree to this color?” “Which one will remain trendy even after a few years?” These questions lead to only one color that’s why it’s hard to decide.

So instead of picking only one color, why don’t you select a palette that contains various but coordinated colors that create a certain mood inside your house? A palette is more flexible, less stiff, and more creative! This is perfect for homes with families.

Today, we’re looking into one playful palette that will keep your home vibrant and forever trendy –  the peacock palette. Here’s how you can apply this to your home.

Charcoal and white master’s bedroom

Isn’t it nice to retire in a dimly-lit room with charcoal walls and subtle white touches (or the other way around) after a stressful day at work? This is exactly what charcoal walls and white undertones can bring you.

If you’re not a fan of dark rooms, then you can paint your walls white and opt for charcoal or deep gray fixtures, decorations, and beddings.
