Color Inspiration: Cool Coastal Palette

My twin sister is getting married on the beach in Florida in a little less than two weeks and I’m so excited for the upcoming trip. I haven’t been to the ocean in a while and it will be another couple of firsts with my daughter – first time on a plane and first time at the ocean. One of those firsts has me slightly nervous by the way (if you guessed flying with a toddler in tow, you’d be correct). But my anticipation for the trip is outweighing my trepidation at this point, and I hope that feeling lasts.

Anyway, thoughts of being on the beach had me thinking about a soothing coastal palette – calm, muted colors that look as if they have been faded by the sun and worn by the sea in hues that represent a little bit of ocean, sky, sand, and clouds

What do you think? I’d love to hear your thoughts. Oh, and wish Erik and me luck on our first time traveling with a toddler (and tips or advice are much appreciated).

    Taryn, thank you, great post! I love so much coastal style interiors and might considering some of your beautiful finds 🙂 Especially I like corals – would be great to make a display of them on the shelf.
