My Color Palette Inspiration

Lately, I've been trying to nail down a color palette for our apartment. As we do more decorating in this little space of ours, I really want to make sure all of the elements flow and coordinate together to create a smooth transition between rooms. Since the space is so small and you can see each area and room from the living/dining area, I think that it's really important that my colors carry over into each room to give a sense of calm and cohesiveness to the space and make it easy on the eyes. For me, if there's too much color change in a small space, my mind and eyeballs start to go a little bit wonkers, and I feel restless and stressed.

All of our walls our white, which I actually love. We decided when we moved in we weren't going to paint the walls because we didn't want to invest in a home we knew was temporary, but lately I have been working on convincing the hubs that we need to paint one or two of them to create a focal point and give the apartment a cozier feel. Plus I have a painting technique I really want to try one of them, so wish me luck. ;) 

For my colors, I chose colors that I always seem to gravitate towards and go back to time and time again. I want to curate furniture and accessories now that I can carry into a home when we get ready to buy one. White is my favorite color, so It is the main color. I know some people believe white isn't a color, but haters gonna hate. ;) Since our walls are remaining white, I can pretty much do whatever I want as far as accent colors goe. I've settled on a mix of blues, mustard yellow, blush pink, and black.  

I've been scouring Pinterest for inspiration to see how I can pull these colors together and if they'll work, and I'm loving what I'm seeing. Below are some of the images that have been inspiring me and making me drool all over my laptop lately.
