e8f324880503c233613eaa7b3a58ca21According to Coastal Living and their readers (which includes us), the coastal color of 2014 is turquoise!

Are we upset about this? No way!

Turquoise is a great color and makes every space that much better! The color can be used in any room and much of it isn’t needed to make an impression. You can sprinkle a few turquoise accessories into a space and they produce a great look with little effort.

Need a little more turquoise than just a few accessories? We do too! Cover the sofa with a turquoise fabric, paint the bamboo chairs or even grab a turquoise coffee table. You’re choices are endless!

What do you guys think? Is turquoise worthy of the coastal color of the year? If not, what color would you pick? Let us know!

Tuesday Tips

We came across a great article from Coastal Living’s idea house called  7 Ways with Coastal Color and had to share it with you!  It’s a quick and easy read with pictures;  I’ll sum it up for you right here:

1. Set the tone of your home from the beginning at the entry.
2. Authentic touches, distressed or vintage pieces, can give the home a ‘lived in’ feel.
3. Use beach inspired colors and light to give an indoor room an outdoor, al fresco feeling.
4. Don’t match everything, instead create an eclectic palette throughout the home.
5. Every color doesn’t need to be bold–subtle color goes a long way.
6. Make odd-shaped rooms appear bigger by painting all the walls  the same color.
7. Blue painted walls can bring the coastal feel into the home.

We love and agree with all of these tips, and will share more about coastal color with you soon!
