Summer vacation is the best isn’t it? The cool ease of a week at the beach always leaves us wanting more…of that pace of life as well as the cool, comfortable feel beach houses seem to inherently possess. Even while your summer may be winding down, you don’t have to say goodbye to that comfortable, easy lifestyle. Look to nature when designing your home with these beach inspired paint palettes.

This palette is so gorgeous, we want to frame this photo from Better Homes and Gardens for our wall. These calm blue tones are the epitome of relaxed elegance. We think this paint pairing would be perfect for a dining room or even, for a casual sun room. Colors pictured here clockwise from top right: Devine Color Seastar, Sherwin Williams SW6256, Olympic Paints C54-3, Pratt and Lambert 27-22 and Farrow and Ball 281.

Sometimes it’s hard to beat what Mother Nature serves up all on her own. For example, don’t you just love this palette of deep greens, light mints and tans? To us, this could be perfect for a relaxed traditional American living room (think large comfy couches, seaglass and light blue throw pillows with a jute rug). Blogger The Domestic Heart put this palette together with Sherwin-Williams Chip It app and all the colors to the right are Sherwin-Williams paint colors.

Seeing this color combination in action helps you envision how you might use it in your own space. We love this beachy-elegant dining room from Coastal Virginia magazine’s idea house. A few things to point out on how they pulled this together—using the seaglass blue as their base color, the designer highlighted the color with neutral beige, crisp white, comfortable browns and even, a little black on the table. The result is an unfussy, but pretty, place to have the friends over for dinner.

While you may not think of light pink as a beach color, it totally is! If you’ve visited the pink sand beaches of Bermuda, you know this is a gorgeous color to bring into any beach-inspired room. We love this unexpected palette of blue-gray glass (would be great on the walls), mint green and soft pink and mocha brown neutrals. Colors pictured here are from DwellStudio.

As a reminder with any paint palette we share, these colors are suggestions for more than just your walls. A good tip is to pick a wall color from these pairings, then think about how you can weave the supporting colors through your furniture, throw pillows and decorative accents. We promise, the result will be striking.
