Colorful Coastal Design

You probably expect to see white and ocean blues as the dominant colors in a house by the water. Here's a look at how to capture a coastal style in more unexpected color palettes – there's really a rainbow of possibilities.

    There's no fear of color here. The bright accents in this cottage kitchen include pops of orange, turquoise, lime green, yellow and red. The pantry cabinet opens up to painted orange shelves and a colorful mix of dishes, setting a playful tone in the kitchen. And let's not forget the checkerboard floor of blue-and-white tiles. The whimsical color palette suits the laid-back beach cottage on Tybee Island in Georgia.

Funky Coastal Kitchen ~ A black-and-white faux bois treatment looks almost too pretty to walk on. The hand-painted pattern takes the traditional wood floors from standard to striking. A clear coat of varnish on the mahogany countertops produces a nautical look that wears well.
