Love coastal colors? Come read why they are perfect for your home.
I’ve been designing coastal color palettes for clients for a really, really long time! It’s one of the color palettes that are just such a huge part of me, since I was born and raised on Long Island and know them so well. When you’re around water, boats, sand, sun and gorgeous sunrises and sunsets, those hues are forever embedded in your mind.
I’ll be posting about coastal colors probably 80% of the time now so let me know if you have any questions about soothing hues and how to get them in your home. Meanwhile, come read my 4 reasons why coastal colors are perfect for your home.
YOU CAN FIND SOFT NEUTRAL COLORS FOR YOUR FOYER
The coastal sunrise as seen in the photograph, has such perfect color choices for your foyer. Typically, soft or lighter colors are chosen for the foyer since it is in such a large part of the home and intersects with other rooms, particularly in open floor plans. It’s always good to chose a “neutral” for the foyer and then branch out with color from there. Also keep in mind that neutral colors aren’t just white and beige. You can have a neutral color with a blue undertone, pink, yellow or gray just like you see here.
YOU CAN FIND RELAXING COLORS FOR YOUR BEDROOM
We all want to feel relaxed in our bedrooms and what better hues to use? Blues, grays and lavender are the colors that you see at sunrise and are prefect to de-stress the bedroom. Like the foyer colors, they have a softness to them which is just want you want when you’re looking for colors to soothe. Combine these colors with a soft white trim and ceiling to complete the look.
YOU CAN FIND DECOR JUST ABOUT ANYWHERE TO COORDINATE
Now that’s a BIG plus! You’re not the only one who loves coastal color, the retail stores know that too and sell everything from bedding to lighting with those coastal hues in mind. You can incorporate blue, green, gray, cream, whites and beige in your decor. It’s a win-win!
YOU WON’T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT RESALE
I’ve had so many clients who love coastal colors and want them in their home but will be selling their home in a few years. They’re worried that there may be too much color for the next homeowner. Guess what? I can bet that just about everyone that looks at your home will fall in love with the coastal color palette and will be thankful that they don’t have to repaint the home. This color palette I designed has been VERY popular for years now for both clients that have just moved into their home and for people who are selling.
