So since it’s January we should be talking about a color palette of Tangerine Tango like everyone else, right? Nope. I’m completely not sold on the orange color as Pantone’s color of the year. Not that Tangerine Tango isn’t a lovely color; but I’m in the mood for blue!
House Beautiful had the same idea as us…their featured Paint Palette included in the new February 2012 issue was inspired by Australia’s Great Barrier Reef and is truly a sea of blue. We love it and hope you will too.
Blue Cloud – #GLM17, Glidden
Cool Cobalt – #GLB03, Glidden
Cool Aqua – #2056-40, Benjamin Moore
Juneau Spring – #2041-40, Benjamin Moore
Ocean Spray – #2047-60, Benjamin Moore
So how do you incorporate these hues in your decor?
Balancing Home created a wonderful mood board using grey and aqua as inspiration…Visit them for product links.
…and how about this bedroom which used the Ocean Spray paint on the walls?
Maybe you like to add your color in accents? Using aqua paint on the bench combines beautifully with the white beadboard walls.
Combining a variety of sea-like shades together makes quite the presentation as witnessed in this bathroom design.
