Beach House Chic is a style I admire, and I could live in a home created with this aesthetic all year long. Nautically-inspired decor, hand painted furniture with a little patina, and a sense of the sea nearby and often with a mixture of clean, modern designs with antiques...it creates a perfect mood to capture a room's personality. This winning color can transform any space and inject a summer feeling in the blink of an eye. Please note just a few of these aqua-infused paint colors I've used in the homes of my clients- from Benjamin Moore's Palladian Blue we painted a living room ceiling to Pratt & Lambert's Duckling we painted vintage rattan for a screened-in porch to Farrow & Ball's bold blue ground we covered a guest room- these colors may feel quite different from one another, but make no mistake call it aqua, turquoise, teal they are all from the same happy family.
Check out some favorite rooms by famous interior designers using aqua as the anchor. These rooms are high-end, super chic, and show the color's vibrancy and versatility. It certainly is not trendy and when combined with jewel tones or even moody palettes, brings a sophisticated feel. So let's rejoice summer with aqua!
