New Home Pinspiration: Tropical & Airy

The most exciting part of buying a new home, at least for me, is new paint and decor! After living in Hawaii, I was so inspired by the open, airy homes with tropical furniture and decor. We’re not talking Hawaiian print. We’re talking subtle colors, patterns, and artwork that convey the comfort and peace found on the North Shore. The current colors in our soon-to-be-home are burgundy, baby boy powder blue, pastel jade green….Need I continue? So, here’s my color palette decisions for the new home. (These are from Pinterest and photos should link to pin!)

KITCHEN: Citron, white, & chrome


Behr Color: Citron (+ plus Chalkboard Paint!)

DINING ROOM: Dark teal, white, gold accents

(only bottom half of wall will be dark teal; top will be white)

color perfection. i love how the wood and whites pop against the teal. Benjamin Moore Dark Harbor, mixed 25% darker.

 Behr Color: Realm bottom half, Luster White top half

LIVING ROOM: light aqua, burnt orange and green accents

GUEST BEDROOM: navy, yellow accents, white

Yellow, Navy and Gray! Future Dining Room colors?? Hmmm . . . already have the gray walls. Note to future self: All shopping trips will now revolve around the colors yellow and navy.

Behr Color: Clay Pebble

HALL BATH: greige, citron, white accents

Behr Color: Citronette

MASTER BEDROOM: light greige, white, ocean color accents (various shades of teal)

I am not good at decorating on my own, but sometimes I see things that make my heart feel nice and warm. This room is one of those. For some reason I can imagine that right outside that door is the beautiful ocean where I can surf with my family all day.

Behr Color: Weathered White

FAMILY ROOM: golden yellow, greige, teal accents
