Color Palettes

My name is Kay.  I am addicted to Pinterest.  Is there a seven step program for this?  I have had so much fun looking  - from animals to craft ideas,  home decoration and color palettes.  I really feel the urge to paint my home.   Right now the living room is two shades of yellow, the kitchen is two shades of green -- very pale, almost like a light celery color.  I have  a nice orange wall that leads upstairs.  

I know I should go more neutral but I don't think it's in my blood.  I've been pinning color palettes.  Do you see a common theme?
Love the blue and gray - with accents in the deep raspberry color.....
I love the turquoise and the strawberry color.  I even like the tan.  I thought of painting my downstairs bathroom a light shade of gray - but maybe this would work.
I really like the darker turquoise in this one - maybe paint my orange wall this color.....
Paint the downstairs bathroom a gray - maybe between the top two colors...
Love the lighter turquoise - but is it too blue?
My kitchen is very pale greens - a pop of the apricot color looks cool
I'm not sure what I will end up doing.  I just need a little push to get started.  I like the gray colors in this one, along with the greens - not exactly turquoise, a bit milder than the other palettes that I've pinned.

What do you think?  Which colors speak to you?

Peace,
Kay

I like the pinks and raspberry. But then again I like them all so I suppose it's no good asking me.

I love pinks Kay, so I would look to go shabby chic with them somewhere in the house. I am just getting rid of reds downstairs and looking for very neutral colours with some turquoise and jade colours. Whatever you choose, have fun.
Have a wonderful weekend.

Pinterest is waaaaaaaaay too addictive I agree! I'm loving grey at the minute, have been for a while! Just painted my son's woodwork in grey (in his bedroom) and bought him a grey carpet. My colour loves are mainly blues and greens usually. You've got some great colour combos here, especially that first one with the pinks and blue

Completely agree about pinterest - I have to ration time on it or I don't actually do anything creative! I love the Design Seeds website too - their palettes are just gorgeous.

I love your various color palettes and see the teal blue popping up a lot in various shades. I find them all appealing myself too. I think the strawberry basket palette is the best one of the bunch here.
