Interior Paint Colors for a Beach House

Save

Deciding on an interior color palette for your beach house is difficult. Most homeowners want a calm environment that echoes the natural elements surrounding their home, without letting the color palette become boring. Using earth tones and colors of the ocean brings in nature while bright colors add that extra bit of spice that you need.

Earth Tones

  • Use natural tones like browns, tans and grays to paint your beach house interior. Earthy colors will bring nature indoors and create a serene environment for you to relax. However, avoid using these colors in darker shades. Doing so may weigh down the light and airy look of your rooms.

Colors of the Ocean

  • Shades of blue and green are a perfect way to extend the view of the ocean into the any room in your house on the beach. Try soft shades of blue like aqua, grey blue or even baby blue. Cool shades of green include sage green or a soft sea green. A mix of blue and green also works well to bring the ocean indoors.

Bring in the Bright

  • A beach house is a great place to experiment with bright colors. Using bright colors throughout your beach house can make you feel like you have walked into a tropical vacation. Paint with bright colors that mimic those found in nature. Colors like coral pink or a bright pineapple yellow are a good way to add color to an otherwise neutral palette.
