Sometimes you just need a dose of color inspiration — and where better to draw it from than some of the country’s most beautiful vacation homes? Bring the “ahhhhh” of a weekend getaway to your space year-round with these stylish, refreshing paint colors.
Sun Room on the Lake
What better place to start than the front porch? The couple who owns this house added a hammock to their sunroom to create a charming outdoor area. They painted the walls a weathered gray — a traditional option for waterside homes because it hides dirt and sand.
Aqua by the Sea
This large bedroom draws its color palette from the ocean views. The walls use a paint color like PPG’s Embellishment to draw in the color of the ocean. A symphony of blues is broken up only by the mermaid-like green chandelier.
Don’t limit your paint ideas to walls or floors. Remake mismatched chairs with coordinated paint colors to capture the charm of a seaside cottage.
Sky and Ocean Blue
Give any home a vacation aesthetic by painting stair treads nautical blue, like PPG’s Royal Plume. Aren’t they crisp and lively against the white walls?
Create a vacation getaway for every day with a cozy sleeping porch. Even if you’re not near your favorite beach or mountain getaway, the sky-blue paint will make you feel as if you are. Get this look with Sleep Baby Sleep paint.
Oh, this stunning aqua shade! It envelops you, from ceiling to floor, yet — even though it’s bold — your eyes are still on the even-more-stunning view. If you’re feeling adventurous, try using Tint of Turquoise in your bedroom.
