The green hues can be forgotten even though they are a huge part of the coastal palette, especially the color sage. Sage is a great color for any coastal home. It’s easy on the eyes, calming and adds a sense of serenity to the space. It allows you to mix in all sorts of colors into it as well.

Tuesday Tips

1. Start with the neutral. 

If you want your bright decor to really stand out use a neutral base to let it shine. Avoid creating competition within your decor. There only needs to be one star and that’s the bright color you choose to accent.

2. Be consistent.

Use the color in every space of the home. There’s no need for every room to have large amounts of the color you choose to accent, but dropping little splashes in each room can help carry the color palette throughout the home. It keeps the design consistent and let’s your eye easily flow from one room to the next.

3. Mix it up.

Not all hues are not created equal. Use this to your design advantage by focusing on your primary colors and complimenting them with different shades of the hue. This way you can let your primary colors shine while still filling the room with more decor.

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!
