Bright Bold Color
Rooms inspired by the shore can also be bold when the fabulous blues of the ocean are highlighted. These striking colors against a crisp white trim will have you running for your beach towel.
This seaside retreat swathed in sky blue (above left) inspires beach-themed dreams. Simple accessories, like starfish and potted plants, add to the design built around vivid color.
Turquoise walls and sea glass accents bring the ocean into this living room (above right). Bright colors are offset by the deep, rich wood floor, the warm stone fireplace, and the sandy-colored seating.
