Neutral and Blue Coastal Home
The garage exterior at the HGTV Smart Home 2013 located in Jacksonville, FL has beige siding and blue accents with palm trees giving it a tropical feel. The exterior is clad in fiber cement siding, designed to mimic the look of classic cedar or cypress shakes.
This adorable cottage in La Jolla village outside San Diego uses beachy themes in a refreshingly subtle way. In this bedroom, navy blue and white bedding and a painting of a boat offer up a nautical hint, complemented by the beautiful wood floors and doors.
This living room exudes stylish serenity with its beach-inspired palette (sandy browns, white and blue) and pops of pattern. Blue cabinets along the back wall tidy away clutter and provide a grounding dose of darker color.
This coastal living room uses neutral walls and furniture as a jumping off point to layer on fun patterns and rich colors via the accent pillows and rug. The dark rug especially helps to ground the room visually and give it personality.
Neutral Coastal Dining Room With Light Blue Chairs
Designer Sarah Richardson arranged the seating around the perimeter of the room so each seat has the perfect view of the water. The shades of blue in the upholstery represent the water, and layering the different patterns, like ikat, floral and striped, gives the room a lighthearted look.
