Decorating With Coastal Colors
I have been gravitating to these colors lately and plan on incorporating the colors as much as I can into my decorating.
It probably started when I collected a piece of sea glass last year while vacationing in Florida. The pale blue tint of the glass is such a pretty and soothing shade. I used it in a candle holder that I made:
I like how the soft blue pairs with natural wood.
Here are some great examples, that I found, for decorating with coastal colors:
The colors work so well for a beachy cottage style room. It definitely gives you the feeling that you can sit and take a breather from the daily stresses!
An aqua wall is another pretty coastal shade that pairs well with natural wood or wicker and other natural elements.
This entryway provides a fresh welcome with a touch of soothing blue in the distressed furnishings.
A bathroom is a great place to use coastal colors for a spa like feel. This is another example from Tuvalu Home of a rustic style coastal feel.
This one is a little more chic and spa like with the smooth blue paint and the combination of the elegant decor.
And, another simple and soothing design in blue and tan.
A kitchen looks bright and cheery with this cool color palette.
Aqua and tan are great colors to use in a shabby chic style. They make a perfect backdrop for things like an old wooden ladder, twine and white accents.
Would you do any decorating using coastal colors? What room would you do in this palette?
