Room Color Schemes from the Shore | Coastal Paint Color Ideas

No matter what the color trend, we turn to the shore when looking for room color schemes and paint color ideas.

Color Schemes from the Ocean and Beach
The ocean and the beach are an open space of beautiful colors and textures. The sea is an ever changing play of blues and crisp whites, rolling up to a beige or white sandy beach, a pebble beach, or a rocky shore. And along with it, all kinds of treasures wash up, most commonly SeashellsDriftwood, and Seaglass

Blues, seaglass greens and warm grays.

Blue Gray Coastal Color Scheme
Blues with a little gray reflect an easy going beach vibe. Natural seagrass, darker wood, and classic black and white work beautifully with this palette, designer Nate Berkus says.

Seaglass Green Color Scheme
Seaglass Green, a color scheme consisting of blue-green hues. If you go too bright with this beach color scheme, you’re heading into turquoise or mint, designer Sasha Emerson points out.

Coastal Warm Gray Color Scheme
Warm Gray, a color you see in beach pebbles and driftwood. This beach color palette also reminds of a quiet overcast day on the beach. Warm gray is neutral and timeless, more complex than cream or white, a soothing backdrop or to set the perfect scene to pop a bright accent color.
