|Inspirational oceanfront palette|
Oceanfront color palettes are natural, and easy to live with. They engage the entire color family of blues and greens, light sand tones, soft driftwood and palm trunk browns, with surprising bursts of pink, red, and orange corals plus a splash of yellow from the sun.

Floors can be light toned marble, travertine, or limestone to bring the look of a sandy beach inside, and blur the distinction between indoors and out. Stones are also cooler underfoot. Wood flooring maintains the natural look of the outdoors, and since they are warmer than stone, may be preferable in climates that are cold in winter. Hand woven natural-fiber rugs in light colors add pattern and texture. Kilims, dhurries, sisal, jute offer a lot of options and a variety of looks.

Keep the scale of accessorize large. Find giant shells, large hurricanes or lanterns with large columnar candles, sculptures of coral or driftwood. Use live tropical plants like bromeliads which are my favorite. They’re colorful and last forever! Orchids, also long lasting, add elegance and grace.
