I am happy to announce a "new thing" Your Color Consultant is doing - Inspired Color Palettes! I have been contemplating for a while how to integrate my love of color, design and art. I also love Photoshop and creating visual inspiration, so I've decided to create "Inspired Paint Color Palettes", you will be able to find them HERE. Most will be available for a free download on my site, Instagram or to be pinned on Pinterest.
A couple times a month on my blog I will highlight rooms with inspired paint colors along with the palette, as in today's post - the colors inspired by Vincent Van Gogh's Starry Night painting.
Vincent Van Gogh is one of my favorite artist.. He is known to be one of the top post impressionists of all time. His use of color, movement and light is breathtaking as seen below in his work, Starry Night. As a side note, scientists actually attribute this piece to his genius on how he captures movement and discovery of turbulence. (Just look at the painting below for a while and it will start to move on you!)
In today's post, I've pulled out a few colors from this work and found similar ones from the paint manufacture Benjamin Moore. Scroll below to read and see how these colors are used for the home.
The dark highlights in the painting remind me of Benjamin Moore's, Midnight Oil paint color. The photo of cabinets below showcase how a black paint can be used to create a deep contrast to the crisp white in this kitchen. This black is also not harsh, as some blacks can be. I love how it pairs nicely with the marble counter tops as well.

Sparkling Sun from Benjamin Moore is the color inspiration from the moon in this art but no one can deny its sunny disposition! This is a great color to use for a pop of color on a front door.

This blue is my favorite of all from the pallet. Not only does it hold the namesake of our inspired artwork, it is energetic and fun - but not too much. Starry Night Blue by Benjamin Moore can also bring sophistication to a room as done in the photo below.

The last color on the palette is Distant Gray from Benjamin Moore. This is a soft gray with a slight hint of green in the undertone of the paint. It pairs very well with white, as pictured below.
