{Color Palettes} Love of Aquamarine

If you love blue then why not give Aquamarine a try in your cottage?  It’s blue with a hint of green which can be found in nature and in everyday objects.  You probably already know that we love color palettes around here so we were more than excited when we discovered an easy to use color palette generator by Sherwin Williams.

So many people seem to have a bit of difficulty in choosing a paint color.  First tip, it’s just paint so if you don’t like it then re-paint.  Second tip, take a look at photographs you love (beach photos, Etsy products, ads in magazines, the clothes you often wear).

Visit Sherwin Williams Let’s Chip It! and create a color palette of a favorite photo and find out what colors you love…you may be surprised to find that certain colors you didn’t know go-together, really do.


Under each color palette you’ll see Let’s Chip It!…

Synergy is our favorite aquamarine shade in this palette and it looks phenomenal with the Requisite Gray shade.  Do you like any of these hues?

Even a two-tone lollipop can inspire!  Colors are very multi-dimensional and various shades of the same color can be found.  Holiday Turquoise is our favorite shade from this palette.

The French Inspired Room - Time to Get Up, The Beach is Calling!

It’s time to get up, the beach is calling!  Dreamy whites are always lovely to decorate your beach cottage with. There is nothing about the ceiling tins,  chandelier, shabby door panels as a headboard that we don’t love! This beach house bedroom design is certainly casual and inviting!

I’m loving all of these bright and tropical colors.  While it’s a bold choice, it may be best to start with a mood board of colors, patterns and ideas.  Once you’ve found what you’re looking for; dive right in!!
